Computational Biologist - Prostate Cancer UK-Movember and CRUK
We are looking for a highly motivated computational biologist to join the Computational Biology Support Team. The successful candidate will work collaboratively with members of the Prostate Cancer UK Movember Centre of Excellence as well as research groups within Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (CRUK MI) to address novel questions at the interface between state-of-the-art technology and cancer biology.
The successful candidate will work with a range of high-throughput genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics data generated by our on-site facilities, including RNA-seq, smallRNA-seq, ChIP-seq, exome, targeted and whole-genome sequencing. The post holder is expected to be competent in the analysis of multi-dimensional genomics data from large-scale studies such as those from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Experience in applying multivariate statistics for the identification of key drivers leading to cancer progression or drug resistance by integrating multi ‘omics” datasets is highly desirable.
The successful applicant should have a PhD in Computational Biology/Bioinformatics, Mathematics, Computer Science (or relevant discipline) or a relevant postgraduate degree in Computer Science or Physics and have significant expertise in the analysis of deep sequencing datasets. Excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively within a highly collaborative environment are also critical.
