The Wellcome Trust Centre for Stem Cell Research provides outstanding scientists with the opportunity and resources to undertake ground-breaking research into the fundamental properties of mammalian stem cells.
A new post has become available to perform bioinformatic analysis of high-throughput data generated by experimental groups within the Cambridge Stem Cell Initiative. The postholder will form part of a small team of bioinformaticians based within the Gottgens group, which has a strong track record in employing both experimental and bioinformatic approaches to characterise stem cell regulatory networks. The postholder will apply and further develop bioinformatic tools to analyse ChIP-Seq and gene expression datasets as well as perform regulatory network inference.
The vacant post is at Research Assistant level and would be suitable for individuals with either a computational or biological background.
Necessary training in specialist computational tools will be provided; the main criterion is an enthusiasm to use bioinformatic approaches to advance stem cell research.
The postholder will be required to work in a UNIX/Linux environment. Proficiency with a scripting language (e.g. Perl/Python) and statistical analysis tools (R, Matlab) would be a strong advantage.
Please contact Bertie Gottgens at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
