Position: Bioinformatician
Institution: Queen Mary University of London
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: This post will be working as part of the bioinformatics core of the centre, working closely with research scientists and clinicians to drive the novel discovery. The post will be expected to provide bioinformatics expertise to projects, where large-scale NGS datasets are generated, e.g., RNA-seq, single cell RNA-seq, whole-exome sequencing, other NGS data. In addition to standard analysis, the successful candidate will be required to think innovatively, using the cutting-edge analytic techniques to integrate multi-omics data and identify novel diagnostic and prognostic signatures
Requirements: Essential requirements for this post include a PhD in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Genetics, Genomics or a relevant discipline. Candidates must demonstrate knowledge and experience in large-scale data analysis, especially next-generation sequencing data sets, e.g, RNA-seq, whole-exome sequencing and/or ChIP-seq. Experience in single-cell RNA-seq analysis, and/or in data integration, modeling and machine-learning is also desirable. A demonstrated ability to communicate well, work within a team and maintain good laboratory records are essential
