Engineering Biology in Cambridge


This is an exciting new opportunity for a highly motivated computational researcher to join Professor Sir Shankar Balasubramanian's pioneering research programme to play a key role in advancing the understanding of sequence, structure and chemical modifications in DNA and RNA. Using their expert knowledge of programming languages, statistical/machine learning methods, bioinformatics tools and resources, the ideal candidate will use and develop computational approaches to transform raw sequencing data into biologically meaningful information.

The successful candidate will have strong problem analysis/solving skills and be able to work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team working at the interface between chemistry, biology and bioinformatics. This is a vital post and the applicant will join a small team, with two other bioinformaticians, applying their expertise across the group. The role will be focussed on innovative technology and on translational research and we would welcome candidates with industrial experience. They will have opportunity to carry independent research in close collaboration with experimental scientists and take advantage of cutting edge HPC AMD infrastructure.
