RESEARCH ASSOCIATE - COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY/BIOINFORMATICS Department of Plant Sciences Salary: £27,319-£35,646 pa Limit of Tenure applies* Genome-wide mapping of recombination in Arabidopsis thaliana We are using high throughput sequencing to determine the segregation of genetic markers as a means to map genome-wide meiotic recombination frequencies in the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana. The research associate will work jointly with Dr Ian Henderson and the Department Bioinformatics Group of 6 researchers led by Dr Krys Kelly. The associate will perform computational analysis of high throughout sequencing data to generate crossover frequency maps, which will be correlated with other genomic and epigenomic datasets. This work has important implications for population genetics and crop improvement. Applicants should have a PhD and substantial experience of a computer language (e.g. R, Perl). Experience in statistics, statistical genetics, quantitative genetics or genomics would also be beneficial. For further particulars please visit the Department website at http://www.plantsci.cam.ac.uk/jobs/index.html or contact Dr Ian Henderson (email: irh25@cam.ac.uk) To apply, please send a covering letter, CV, a Chris/6 cover sheet (parts I and III only) - http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/offices/hr/forms/chris6/ - and the names and contact details (including email addresses) of 3 referees to Ombretta Orsini, Head of Department's Secretary, Department of Plant Sciences, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EA or email: oo203@cam.ac.uk * Limit of tenure: The post is available for 2 years.
