Professor Chris Ponting was initially awarded 5 years’ funding to establish a Strategic Programme in Computational Genomics Analysis and Training (CGAT; within the MRC Functional Genomics Unit in Oxford. CGAT has been training eight postdoctoral scientists in computational genomics thereby providing expertise and added value to other UK-wide institutions. Funding for this programme has recently been extended and we are seeking to recruit two further scientists. Each Fellow will be assigned to diverse genomics projects that all focus on the analysis and biological interpretation of next-generation sequence data. Projects are collaborative involving scientists from across the UK. Training will be provided through close coaching by a senior CGAT scientist, as well as through tailored courses and tutorials.

A PhD/DPhil in biology, medical biology or a field relevant to computational genomics is essential. Excellent organisational and communication skills are required, together with the ability to work well independently and within a team. A willingness and ability to learn advanced computational and statistical skills, as well as good familiarity with computers and office software are required.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Friday 5 December 2014.
