The appointees will be responsible for the application of genomic technologies in order to realise translation of personalised medicine for people with epilepsy. The posts are based at the well-known Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy with translational research facilities and onsite laboratories. The main purpose of the posts 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 holders will be responsible for a range of activities, amongst which will be research on genomic, clinical and other data in epilepsy, and the provision of laboratory-based scientific support and close collaboration in research projects aiming for clinical applications across the group, and through collaborative external projects, such as with Genomic England Ltd (1000,000 Genomes project) https://www.genomicsengland.co.uk/about-genomics-england/the-100000-genomes-project/ and other national and international initiatives. An important strand of the group's research is to develop formal quantitative multimodal analyses, for example, as used in recent work ( https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/470518v1 ). The posts are available from September 2019 and are funded by a grant from the Epilepsy Society for three years in the first instance. Key Requirements Applicants must hold a PhD in Genetics, Statistics, Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Neurological Genetics or a closely related discipline and have experience in computational genomics and knowledge of pipelines for the analysis of next-generation sequencing data, and dealing with large genome-wide datasets.
