Salary on appointment will be £35,333 per annum, with an annual increment up to £42,155 per annum

As a Senior Research Associate in Bioinformatics, you will carry out research and provide analytical support for biomarker development in the Cancer Genetics Diagnostics Laboratory. Specifically, you will be working on a Prostate Cancer UK and Movember Foundation Research Innovation Award study to validate the PUR (Prostate Urine Risk) test for prostate cancer; develop transcriptomic molecular subtypes in prostate cancer for use in the clinic, and to determine whether mitochondrial DNA is a potential non-invasive biomarker for cutaneous melanoma.

You can expect to be involved in all aspects of the collection, data management, development of analysis pipelines and analysis of patient, next generation sequencing and expression data in this project, including the commercialisation of these tests.

The research will be based in the diagnostic laboratory of the Cancer Genetics Team at Norwich Medical School, an interdisciplinary team comprising a mixture of bioinformaticians and laboratory scientists. We have a broad interest in translational cancer-based molecular studies with the aim of improving patient care. You will also liaise with other studies within Cancer Genetics and with collaborating teams and hospitals within and outside the UK.

You will have a PhD in computer science or a relevant numerical biological discipline (e.g. bioinformatics, computational biology) or equivalent experience in bioinformatics. You will have strong organisational skills and a good publication record. You will have experience of working with next generation sequencing data and/or large transcriptome datasets, and experience of managing a project with large amounts of data. Experience in clinical statistics, significant postdoctoral experience, data management and cancer research is an advantage. You should also have well-developed analytical and practical skills, programming skills, an enthusiasm for working in an interdisciplinary environment and the ability to interact and communicate effectively with scientists from other disciplines, including clinicians, scientific computing, IT and biologists.

The post is available immediately on a full-time basis for a fixed term period to 5 May 2025.

Closing date: 30 May 2023
