The post is full-time and fixed term until the 31st March 2019, in the first instance and will be based at St Marys Campus.
UK MEDical BIOinformatics partnership – aggregation, integration, visualisation and analysis of large, complex data (UK MED-BIO) funded by MRC brings together a world-leading multi-disciplinary team in medical and computer science, medical bioinformatics, statistical and biochemical analysis, across Imperial College London with links to the National Phenome Centre and Imperial’s Data Science Institute.
The project will provide extensive capacity to assemble phenotypic data with multi-omic information, develop powerful new approaches to the integration and analysis of large-scale, complex, multi-source medical data and multi-variate data model visualisation and from these create new knowledge on disease aetiology, underlying biochemical pathways and mechanisms.
We have an exciting opportunity for a senior postdoctoral bioinformatician with strong experience of large scale data analyses and manipulation, management and integration of multi-‘omic datasets, with the drive and initiative to assist in managing and coordinating the day to day running and data analysis aspects of a large multi-partner project.The post holder will take day-to-day responsibility for running and coordination of the analyses and data management aspects of UK MED-BIO, reporting to the Director. The postholder will personally undertake bioinformatics and statistical analyses for the project (together with project research fellows, other personnel) and take an active role in developing and implementing the data management plan.
