The Institute draws together over 300 talented scientists who are working together to understand cancer biology and translate research discoveries into developing more effective therapies for cancer patients. The Neurogenesis and Brain Cancer group led by Prof. Simona Parrinello, is seeking a Computational Biology Research Associate. Using a combination of experimental approaches, including gene editing, proteomics, high throughput sequencing and advanced intravital microscopy in mouse models and patient-derived cells, the group focuses on glioblastoma invasion and the role that the brain microenvironment plays in this process. The aims of the project are to investigate the molecular signatures of invading glioblastoma cells and determine their links to tumour genetics in novel glioblastoma mouse models that recapitulate the human disease. Duties and responsibilities of the post holder include but are not limited to: contribute in all phases of the project, from study design to publication, identify and apply the most suitable computational methods to be used in the research project, evaluate available software and develop new bioinformatics tools if required. This post is initially funded for 2 years. Key Requirements The successful candidate must have a PhD in bioinformatics or another related discipline) (or be studying towards a PhD) or possess the equivalent experience. Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary ?30,316-?31,967 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis. Applicants must have demonstrable research experience in bioinformatics and excellent programming and scripting skills (e.g. R, Python, Perl, etc.). Experience in the analysis of next-generation sequencing data is essential, experience in single cell analysis desirable. Excellent organizational and communication skills are essential.
