We are seeking a Computational Biologist to join the Metabolic Research Laboratories (MRL) Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (Bio2) Core Facility, a scientifically complex facility pursuing data driven scientific research projects, (also in collaboration with Astra Zeneca and other research partners within prestigious international research institutions), and providing support to a wide range of scientists within the MRL and across the wider scientific community in Cambridge and nationally.
This position funded by the Wellcome Trust provides abundant opportunities for a talented and driven data scientist to play a pivotal role in developing and enhancing the scientific programmes of the MRL and MRC Metabolic Diseases Unit (MDU), at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Institute of Metabolic Science.
As a member of an experienced team, you will contribute to and participate in large-scale projects and discovery efforts. You will be involved in the analysis and integration of clinical data, -omics (metabolomics, proteomics, transcriptomics and genomics) data sets and data produced by cutting edge technologies such as scRNAseq, ribosome profiling, peptidomics and lipidomics.
You will have great opportunities for personal development and training, being embedded in a world-class scientific community (including, among others, the European Bioinformatics Institute and the Sanger Institute), benefitting from interaction with the local scientists. Moreover, direct collaboration with experimental scientists offers the unique possibility of being involved in the whole data generation and analysis workflow, from the experimental design phase to the analysis processes. .
