Postdoc fellowship in Bioinformatics at BRC MH King’s College London
Applications are invited for the post of Post-doctoral Researcher in Bioinformatics to join the NIHR Specialist Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health (BRC-MH). The BRC-MH, funded by the National Institute for Health Research, undertakes translational research across 7 mental disorder specific themes and 3 Cross-cutting themes.
The BRC-MH received a £3m infrastructure grant from Trustees of the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and the Guys and St Thomas’ Trust (GSTT) Charity for a ‘Nucleus’ of IT developments, bioinformatics and biostatistics to support a variety of strategically important BRC-MH research initiatives.
As part of the BRC bioinformatics group the successful candidate will be expected to perform integrative bioinformatics research of an international standard complementary to the overall research strategy of the BRC-MH. This strategy includes the use of transcriptomics, genomics, proteomics, neuroimaging, clinical records mining and other approaches to identify biomarkers of progression, disease and treatment response and further understanding mental illness. Duties of the role will include the development of tools for large scale data analysis, integration, mining and visualisation; the design and analysis of large variable datasets, pattern classification and mathematical/statistical modelling and programming in a variety of languages on a Linux platform.
Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Richard Dobson (Tel: +(0)203 2288563;
