Cambridge Research Institute Bioinformatics Core
£26,150 - £36,150 pa inc

The Cambridge Research Institute (CRI) is a major new initiative of Cancer
Research UK, in collaboration with the University of Cambridge.
Strategically situated on the Addenbrooke's biomedical campus, the Institute
emphasises a multi-disciplinary approach linking the laboratory to the
clinic to solve problems associated with the prevention, diagnosis and
treatment of cancer.

The Bioinformatics Core facility provides computational support for research
at CRI through statistical data analysis, data management, and training and
consultation services, focussing primarily on high-throughput genomics

We are seeking a bioinformatician to join our growing team and support
microarray and next generation sequencing based projects. You will work
closely with scientists on a regular basis analyzing data generated by our
in-house Illumina genomics platforms for a range of applications including
differential gene expression, ChIP analysis of DNA-bound proteins, SNP
detection, copy number analysis and structural variation. You will also gain
experience in experimental design and downstream analysis techniques, such
as identifying gene signatures and regulatory networks.

You should have a first degree in a scientific or computational discipline
and preferably a postgraduate degree or significant experience in
Bioinformatics or Computational Biology. The role requires good
communication skills, as you will work closely with research scientists and
other bioinformaticians, and the ability to work well in a team. You should
also have programming skills and knowledge of bioinformatics software and
data resources would be an advantage. The ideal candidate will have
experience in the use of statistical methods and/or computational packages
for analysing microarray data, especially using R and associated
Bioconductor packages.
