Applications are invited for a Senior Bioinformatician to join the recently established Oxford-GSK Institute for Molecular and Computational Medicine (IMCM), at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, Nuffield Department of Medicine.
As a Senior Bioinformatician you will provide computational biology and bioinformatics expertise for IMCM projects to exploit the potential of data analytics, AI/ML and next generation deep phenotyping to enable the detection of neurodegenerative/neuroimflammatory disease endophenotypes and identification of patients and biomarkers for progression. Reporting to IMCM Programme Manager, you will work closely with Statisticians, Machine Learning researchers, Senior Data Manager, Big Data Institute team and the Joint Project Teams to develop a data analysis strategy for all the projects under IMCM, with oversight from the Data Platform, Governance & Analytics Committee and IMCM co-directors Professor John Todd and Dr Tony Wood. You will lead in developing a plan for bioinformatics analyses of multi-omics data from tissue generated from patients and/or cells from human relevant translational models for each project, and line-manage IMCM bioinformatician(s). You will apply existing bioinformatics tools/pipelines, and design, develop, implement and maintain novel bioinformatics algorithm to conduct detailed analyses of datasets in order to address specific questions of each project. As a senior member of the team you will provide bioinformatics advice to multidisciplinary project teams, and line manage bioinformaticians. You will have joint responsibility for the ongoing success of the research programme, keeping in mind the IMCM’s approach and mission.
