Position: Principal Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Department of Clinical & Experimental Epilepsy
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The main purpose of the post is to advance understanding of the epilepsies through detailed clinical, investigational and genomic evaluation in a large cohort of people with well-characterised epilepsies. The post holder will oversee a team of Research Fellows/Bioinformaticians responsible for the statistical analysis and the scientific interpretation of data. S/he will provide bioinformatics advice and support to other group members and collaborators from different disciplines (and, in return, will receive advice from multidisciplinary teams)
Requirements: Applicants must hold a PhD in Genetics, Statistics, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or a closely related discipline and have extensive experience in generating genotyping and sequence data, analysing large genome-wide datasets, and supervising bioinformaticians/junior analysts. A track record of research publications in reputable journals within the areas of next generation sequencing data, conference presentations, research collaborations and grants is essential, and general knowledge of neurology/epilepsy is desirable
