We currently have a vacancy for a highly motivated Senior Bioinformatics Officer to provide support for our ongoing molecular profiling and Next-Generation Sequencing projects within the Endocrinology Team, and to build on existing collaborations with other groups within the UK and internationally. The post will also include some activities within the Bioinformatics core allowing exposure to multiple projects within the Centre and the development of state of the art analysis pipelines.
