Detail information about job Research Data Analyst. Terms and conditions vacancy
We are looking for an individual with a proven understanding of biochemistry, molecular biology, and chemical biology to assist with the development and implementation of strategies to quantify the SGC's impact, improve knowledge transfer from the SGC and to make information available to SGC scientists to assist in disease-annotation of SGC targets.
You will be responsible for assisting with the development and implementation of methodologies to assess the impact of SGC research outputs which include: TEPs (target enabling packages – www.thesgc.org/teps); chemical probes including data from screening against patient-derived diseased tissue platforms, protein structures, and publications. You will also be responsible for assisting with the curation and submission of SGC research outputs to data repositories including ORA Data, ChEMBL, and other relevant third party databases. The aggregation and provisioning of relevant data sources to assist in the annotation of SGC targets will also be an important aspect of this role. Finally you will assist with developing strategies to monitor internal progress on the SGC pipeline and associated projects.
You will possess a degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, structural biology, cheminformatics, bioinformatics or an equivalent combination of training and experience. This position would ideally suit an individual who wishes to pursue a career in improving the impact and knowledge transfer resulting from both public and private research funding and in particular in a pre-competitive context.
This is a full-time fixed-term appointment for 2 years.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 4 October 2017.
