UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
RESEARCH ASSOCIATE IN COMPUTATIONAL GENOMICS
BIG DATA INSTITUTE (BDI) CURRENTLY LOCATED AT WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN 
Grade 7: £30,738 to £37,768 with a discretionary range to £41,255 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate in Computational Genomics, based in the research group of Professor Gil McVean. The detection of de novo mutations within the genetic material transmitted from parents to children has been made possible through high throughput sequencing technologies.  However, detecting the full spectrum of de novo mutations, particularly within non-model organisms, remains challenging. We are looking for an individual with a strong computational genomics background and interests in mutational processes to join the group to help develop and apply computational tools for de novo mutation detection across a range of projects.  These tools will build on previous work using multi-coloured de Bruijn graphs.

You will have a PhD with a strong background in the computational analysis of genetic variation, with an excellent grasp of de Bruijn graphs and/or related structures.  You will enjoy working as part of a team and be excited about working to develop and release computational tools in genomics.  You will have an interest in visualisation and have experience of analysing high throughput sequencing data.  You will be good at communicating your work and enjoy presenting results to collaborators and at meetings.

The position is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is fixed-term for 2 years, but not beyond 31st December 2018 in the first instance.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.

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

Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Statistical Functional Genomics within 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.
