Position: Research Fellow (Bioinformatics)
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Department of Neuromuscular Diseases
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The Department of Neuromuscular Diseases is a hub for clinical and research excellence across the spectrum of spinal cord and neuromuscular diseases. Applications are invited for a Research Fellow to work on identifying the underlying mechanisms of ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), a rapidly progressive, incurable and fatal disease that causes the degeneration of motor neurons (MNs) and consequent generalized paralysis. The successful applicant will work at the interface between a computational group, based at the UCL Genetics Institute (under the supervision of Dr Maria Secrier) and wet labs based at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology (Dr Pietro Fratta, Professor Adrian Isaacs), with the opportunity to balance the time spent in both locations depending on the needs and preferences of the candidate
Requirements: Applicants must have a PhD in Neuroscience, Biostatistics, Mathematics, Physics or related discipline, experience with scientific programming (R, Python and MATLAB) and computational biology, ideally high throughput sequence data analysis. The ability to work in a diverse group including computational and experimental neurobiologists, to write clearly and succinctly for publication, to prioritise own work for deadline and to present research findings with authority and coherence are also requirements. Experience in neuroscience and advanced statistics is desirable
