Applications are invited for the position of Bioinformatician on the Plant at Fungal Trees of Life (PAFTOL) Project at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London, U.K.

Kew is the world’s leading botanic gardens, at the forefront of plant and fungal science, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a major visitor attraction. We want a world where plants and fungi are understood, valued and conserved – because our lives depend on them. We use the power of our science and the rich diversity of our gardens and collections to provide knowledge, inspiration and understanding of why plants and fungi matter to everyone.

The successful candidate will be an active member of PAFTOL’s multi-disciplinary team led by the Head of Comparative Plant and Fungal Biology. The post holder, together with a senior bioinformatician, will be responsible for implementing the design and build of software systems and data analysis necessary to ensure the completion of PAFTOL, and will play a critical role in the success of the project.

You will be an excellent bioinformatician with a Ph.D or equivalent experience and a proven background in genomic data analysis ideally in a research environment. You will have a track record of helping to design and build bioinformatics pipelines and applying phylogenomic methods to infer the tree of life, with sufficient specialist knowledge to help improve upon existing tools and methodologies. You will be a proven team player, with the ability and appetite to help deliver project outputs, outreach, and to train and support researchers and students as required.

Closing Date: 16th September 2018

If you are interested in this position, please also upload 1) a letter of motivation and 2) a full CV, including details of publications and software.

I'd recommend against using "Dear" in a professional environment, as the word has different cultural connotations in different parts of the world. You can either use the username, or just "Hello"/"Hi".
