Research Fellow in Transcriptomics – Molecular Pathology

Centre for Genomics & Experimental Medicine

Expiry Date: 14 October 2016

Salary Scale: £31,656 - £37,768

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a postdoctoral research fellow in transcriptomics and molecular pathology. Based on rapid technological advances in genome sequencing, including the ready availability of whole genome sequencing, new possibilities have opened up in biomedical research and medical practice, including the opportunities for more precise molecular diagnosis and personalised treatment based on genome information. Implementation of this "step change" in diagnostics and pathology is the central aim of our recently established Node in Molecular Pathology, to move these multiple advanced technologies into routine clinical care.
