Applications are invited for a Biostatistician post to join a rapidly developing Bioinformatics Research Core, based at the Department of Oncology, University of Oxford.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Biostatistician to contribute to and help lead on the analysis of large-scale data sets in molecular oncology. The purpose of the role is to provide Biostatistical expertise to the Core and contribute to the design of studies, the analysis of data and the development of new analytical methods. The person appointed will be interacting directly with researchers to help identify project funding opportunities, to maintain the scientific quality and integrity of projects and ensure their timely completion. You will focus on statistical analyses of cancer data sets assessing clinical/phenotypic data, genomics and other *omics biomarkers for association with the risk of disease and its progression.
• To collaborate closely with biologists and clinicians to deliver biostatistics and bioinformatics analyses of datasets, to validate key findings and to suggest further experiments.
• To develop innovative statistical solutions for integrated analysis of multidimensional *omics datasets, including gene expression, next-generation sequencing, high throughput screening (shRNA), metabolomics and proteomics data in the context of clinical studies and trials.
