Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistical Genetics

Grade 7: £29,099 - £35,788 per annum

We are seeking to recruit a Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistical Genetics. The research involves computational and statistical analysis of large-scale genetic and genomics data (including whole-genome sequence, transcript profiling, and genome-wide association data sets) to address methodological questions related to the analysis of such data, and to identify variants impacting on risk of type 2 diabetes. The work will be conducted in close collaboration with other analysts and researchers in the US and Europe and is expected to lead to high-profile publications. It is essential that you hold a PhD in a relevant subject (or expect to be in a position to submit before the post start date) and have experience in working as part of a large, distributed, international collaborative team. Appointments will be made to a suitable point on Grade 7 (or to Grade 6 pending award of a Postgraduate degree). The successful candidate will have exceptional computational skills and will have demonstrated their capacity for large-scale genetic analysis at the highest possible level. We are looking for someone who is available from August 2011. The posts are available for one year in the first instance with the possibility of extension.
