Applications are invited for a Senior Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Geospatial Modelling to work within the groups at the Big Data Institute, located at Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics led by Prof. Peter Gething and Dr Catherine Moyes.

You will play a leading role in the development of spatial statistical models to investigate spatiotemporal patterns in insecticide resistance in the mosquito species that transmit malaria, dengue and other tropical diseases. A key focus is to use the modelling infrastructure developed to answer questions about the relative contributions of different drivers of selection for resistance. This work will be conducted in collaboration with modellers and biologists in Oxford and leading experts in insecticide resistance at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

You will hold first or upper second class Bachelor degree and PhD in mathematics, statistics or equivalent quantitative discipline with extensive expertise in statistical modelling coupled with computer programming. You will have the confidence and capacity to work both autonomously and as part of multidisciplinary and multinational collaborative teams with a proven ability to manage research projects, meeting defined milestones on time as well as having a very competitive publication record.

This position is fixed term for 3 years in the first instance and funded by the Wellcome Trust.

UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN STATISTICAL FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN 
Grade 8: £38,896 - £46,414 p.a

Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Statistical Functional Genomics within the group of Prof Julian Knight. This will be part of an exciting new research programme to understand pathogenesis and improve treatment of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). The research aims to build on recent success in genome-wide association studies of AS to now fine-map associations and establish function for specific genetic variants in a disease context, defining mechanistic links with particular gene(s) and pathways that can be taken forward as potential drug targets.

We seek a highly motivated, proactive individual who will benefit from the exceptional research environment for functional genomics, bioinformatics and statistical genetics at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics. You will lead analysis of high dimensional datasets, notably next generation sequencing data arising from an integrated analysis functional immunogenomics approach to understanding genomic and epigenomic variation in AS.

You will have a PhD in Statistical genetics, Statistics, Bioinformatics, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science or a related discipline together with relevant research experience in statistical genetics and/or bioinformatics, excellent analytical and quantitative skills, the ability to work in a team and a strong publication record.

An appointment at Grade 7: with a salary range of £30,738 - £37,768 p.a. may also be considered for a less experienced candidate with suitable adjustment of the responsibilities.

The position is funded by Arthritis Research UK and is fixed term for 3 years, but not beyond 31st March 2020 in the first instance.

Grade 7: £30,738 - £37,768 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Cancer Biology to join the Oxygen-Sensing Group under the joint supervision of Dr David Mole and Prof Peter Ratcliffe (FRS) who is also head of department. The group has a long-standing record in the field of hypoxia and HIF biology (both generally and specifically in its relation to kidney cancer) having been at the forefront of research in this area, internationally, for nearly two decades.

You will join our on-going programme of work to study pan-genomic transcriptional and epigenetic responses to hypoxia and their relation to cancer biology. You will have a broad range of molecular biology skills and will provide the “wet-bench” experimental component to a broad programme of work using next-generation sequencing approaches.

You will have a PhD or equivalent degree in molecular biology or related field. You will have evidence of research productivity (e.g. research publications in peer reviewed journals, presentations etc.). You should have high level of motivation and an ability to demonstrate research potential and enthusiasm for the subject area in order to deliver high quality research and will possess strong organisational skills and ability to communicate effectively and efficiently to deliver results.

The position is fixed-term until 30th April 2018and funded by the Cancer Research UK.
