Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Bioinformatician position in the laboratory of Professor Steve Jackson. We wish to recruit an outstanding individual to lead a data-driven project addressing mechanisms by which genome mutations arise and how they influence cell proliferation and survival in response to DNA damaging agents and other stresses. In addition, the post-holder will work on collaborative projects based on data generated by other group members. Prior experience in computational biology, and experience in programming and a solid background in statistical tools are essential. Familiarity with analysis of "next-generation" DNA sequencing data would also be highly desirable. We are based in the internationally renowned Gurdon Institute in the centre of Cambridge and have strong links to the Sanger Institute, Hinxton.
