The University of Sheffield and its associated Medical School and Hospitals is ranked as one of the nation's top biomedical research institutions in patient care, research, and education. We seek an experienced computational biologist with Core services experience to work as an Analyst within the Bioinformatics Core team.
The Sheffield Bioinformatics Core (SBC)is dedicated to providing outstanding consultation to our researchers in need of informatics solutions and consulting support and provision of infrastructure for data management and analysis pipelines for commonly used omics. It will comprise a multi-disciplinary team of senior and junior analysts, who will work with researchers across the University of Sheffield, its Medical School and the Sheffield Hospital Trusts community.
The team will provide a comprehensive portfolio of infrastructure, data analysis, training and development. The Core will be part of the Bioinformatics Hub at the University of Sheffield. The Hub is committed to leading the development of computational biology and bioinformatics and its application to discoveries made by data analytics, enabled by open collaboration, highly integrated team science, and professional bioinformatics services for our researchers. It is made up of a team of academic staff who both research and teach bioinformatics and who liaise with the University Research Software Engineering team who deliver scientific software support to facilitate the teaching of data.
As a member of the bioinformatics core team, you will provide a comprehensive portfolio of infrastructure, data analysis, training and development. This is a unique opportunity for you to participate in world-class research while applying best practice and developing new analytical skills and building on your existing expertise. You will be working directly with researchers primarily in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health, on projects ranging from interpretation of disease transcriptomics and genome sequences in humans and model organisms.
This is a unique opportunity to participate in world-class research. As part of the SBC, you will be working directly with researchers on projects ranging from interpretation of single cell transcriptomics, interpretation of sequencing of patient genomes to plant bioinformatics studies. You will work with centres, programmes and institutes across the university.
You will hold a PhD in a biomedical or quantitative science (or MSc with equivalent experience).
