We are seeking to appoint a Post-doctoral Bioinformatician to undertake research on the bioinformatics of eye cancers with Prof. Shin-ichi Ohnuma and Dr. Mandeep Sagoo.
The work aims to understand the mechanism of cancer initiation and progression through bioinformatics data analysis of whole genome sequences and mRNA expression profiling in combination with single cell biology. The position is available for 32 months in the first instance.
This project builds on the previous basic cancer biology works of Prof. Ohnuma and on the patient-based clinical retinoblastoma research of Dr Sagoo.
Applicants should have a PhD and research experience in bioinformatics. Previous experience in analyses of next generation genome sequence data and mRNA expression profiling is preferable. Applicants must beself-motivated, havetheability to plan and interpret experimental studies as well as have excellent communication skills and ability to write well.
The laboratory is well equipped and is part of UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. The Institute comprises about 40 research groups spanning a research area encompassing visual development, stem cell based study, and therapy of retinal diseases. UCL has active neuroscience, developmental biology, and stem cell research communities and the group has established collaborative links within the institute and UCL, as well as with national and international colleagues.
