UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
SENIOR COMPUTATIONAL STATISTICIAN
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN

Grade 8: £38,511 - £45,954 with a discretionary range to £50,200 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Senior Computation Statistician within ‘The Spatial Ecology and Epidemiology Group’ (SEEG) located at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

Over the last ten years, SEEG has developed methods to model spatial variation in the probability of disease occurrence (based on species distribution models) and to model spatiotemporal variation in disease prevalence (using Bayesian model-based geostatistics). The aim of the current work is to update and improve these models to define global spatiotemporal variation in infant mortality and in the leading causes of infant mortality (HIV, TB, malaria, respiratory illness, and diarrhoea).

You will have a PhD in computer science, statistics, maths, physics or another relevant subject. A demonstrable interest in the research described here, relevant postdoctoral research experience and demonstrated competence in scientific computing using at least one programming language (C, C++, JAVA, R are preferred).

You will have excellent analytical and quantitative skills including a good working knowledge of probability theory/statistics, the ability to independently plan, manage and develop research projects and excellent communication skills. An interest in any of geostatistics, statistical inference, stochastic processes, Gaussian processes and experience using small area estimation are desirable.

Applications will also be considered for appointment at the appropriate salary range of Grade 7: £30,434 - £37,394 p.a., with a suitable adjustment to duties and responsibilities.

This position is fixed term until 31st December 2016 in the first instance and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN STATISTICAL CANCER GENOMICS
WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN

Grade 7: £30,434 – £33,242 p.a. pro rata

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Computational Cancer Genomics within the Genomic Medicine group (Dr Christopher Yau) at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics. The purpose of the roles is to develop and deliver integrative approaches to dissect the complexity of cancer as a genomic disease. The research will focus on development and application of effective strategies for mining and integration of complex human *omics datasets and clinical/phenotypic data in cancer studies.

The role sits at the critical interface between genetics and cancer systems biology, and would suit a candidate who is interested in developing a career at the confluence of Statistics/Data Mining/Machine Learning and Biology. Ideally, you will have experience in development of analytical approaches to high-throughput and multivariate data mining and integration gained through a PhD (or equivalent) in a quantitative subject (eg mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering or computer science).

Experience of statistics and/or machine learning techniques is highly desirable as is evidence of prior experience of developing bioinformatics software and/or analysing complex *omics data sets. You will be able to work as part of a team and independently and deliver results to the required standard and schedule. You should be able to organise and prioritise your own work, as well as have excellent communication skills, both written and oral. The post will involve interactions with collaborators from such diverse fields as applied mathematics, statistics, computer science and medicine.
