Bioinformatician in Livestock Virology (POST REF: IRC112153)

Full details: http://www.pirbright.ac.uk/jobs/Jobs.aspx

This post offers a unique opportunity to develop your own
interdisciplinary research profile at the interface of experimental
and theoretical bioscience applied to livestock virology at The
Pirbright Institute.

This post requires an understanding of the principles of
bioinformatics and molecular biology, together with practical
computing skills. Background knowledge of the biology of livestock
animals and the viruses affecting them would also be beneficial. We
expect candidates to have a firm grasp of at least one of the
following areas: virus evolution; genomics and transcriptomics of
viruses, vectors and hosts; or immunology and immunogenetics. We
therefore encourage applications from biologists who are developing
computer science and bioinformatics knowledge and from candidates with
a computer science background who are developing knowledge in the

The Pirbright Institute, an institute of the Biotechnology and
Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), is a unique national
center that works through its highly innovative fundamental and
applied bioscience to enhance the UK capability to contain, control,
and eliminate viral diseases of animals and viruses that spread from
animals to humans. We thereby support the competitiveness of UK
livestock and poultry producers, and improve the health and quality of
life of both animals and people.

The closing date for applying is 29 October 2013. Full details,
including instructions for applying, can be found at
