Postdoctoral Research Associate in Cellular Genomics Data Analysis (157075)

 

Grade 8: £42,149 - £50,296 per annum

 

The Kennedy Institute at the University of Oxford has an exciting opportunity for a computational researcher to join the Powrie, Buckley and Sansom groups (The Kennedy Institute). We are looking for a talented scientist to help lead our team’s investigations of the cellular and molecular causes of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases and cancer. The work will involve analysis and interpretation of rich datasets from patient cohorts and state-of-the-art single-cell and spatial genomics experiments. Your discoveries will be prioritised, validated and mechanistically tested in close partnership with wet-lab and clinical colleagues. In the course of this work, you will have the opportunity to develop novel computational methods and to work alongside our clinical collaborators to help translate discoveries into the clinic. The successful applicant will participate in national (Research into Inflammatory Arthritis Center) and international research consortiums, including the Human Cell Atlas Project.

 

You should have a high-quality publication record that demonstrates experience with the statistical analysis and interpretation of complex genomics datasets, along with excellent coding skills and problem-solving abilities. A PhD/DPhil (or near completion) in a discipline directly relevant to computational genomics research is essential. In this role, you will perform scientific research, review and refine working hypotheses and acquire relevant skills as necessary. You will analyse and interpret data, preparing and publishing your findings in peer-reviewed journals. The work will involve helping to create and maintain computational workflows and to train colleagues. The successful applicant will be a member of the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology within the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences.

 

Please read the accompanying job description carefully and ensure that you address each selection criterion in a supporting statement which must be uploaded together with your CV when applying online.

 

This is a fixed-term, full-time position for 3 years. The closing date for this position is 12 noon on Wednesday 20 April 2022. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

 

Due to the nature of the research at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, this job will require a satisfactory basic Disclosure and Barring Service check.
