Fixed Term, 3 years
MRC Band 4 Salary £34,988 - £37,801 pa inclusive*
Applications are invited for a 3-year post-doctoral research position in Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics at Imperial College London. The research group spans the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS) and National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London, and the Cardiovascular Research Centre at Royal Brompton Hospital. You will be primarily based on the Hammersmith Hospital campus at the CSC, which provides an outstanding environment for interdisciplinary research with excellent core support. For a description of the institute and details of core facilities, visit www.lms.mrc.ac.uk.
We are looking for a talented computational biologist, with experience in human genetics (preferably including genome-wide association studies), to join our Cardiovascular Genetics & Genomics team. Our research is aimed at understanding the genetic basis of cardiovascular disease, with a focus on inherited heart diseases. You will be embedded in a well-established bioinformatics team, and will use genomic data (SNP array and high throughput sequencing) to study the genetic architecture of inherited cardiomyopathies.
