Bioinformatician

Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine

Expiry Date: 5 December 2014

Salary Scale: £31,342 - £37,394

Overview: A bioinformatician with experience of the analysis of microarray datasets is sought for an exciting project to look at stratifying breast cancer patients to ensure they receive the most appropriate treatments. Building upon previous work, the study will involve integration and meta-analysis of large publicly available and local datasets to develop a clinical test that can be routinely used in the clinic. A first degree in biology, mathematics, computer science or related subjects and a higher degree (MSc, MRes or PhD) and/or relevant experience in bioinformatics with programming skills in R, Python or Perl are required. Previous experience of clinical/cancer studies or permutation-based analysis and high performance computing would be a distinct advantage.
