Research Fellow

University of Edinburgh - The Edinburgh Cellular Genomics Consortium (eCGC)

Are you ready to develop and apply cutting-edge single cell analytical tools? Interested in addressing the latest questions in the biology of single cells?

We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow who will develop their career by acquiring approaches to analysing and interpreting single cell transcriptomics whilst contributing to transcriptomics studies of single cells.

The cell is a natural unit of biology yet until recently determining the transcriptome or the genome of single cells was not possible. The Edinburgh Cellular Genomics Consortium (eCGC) has been funded through a MRC Discovery Award to implement single cell transcriptomics experimental and analytical approaches across Edinburgh (PI: Ponting; Universities of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt).

The successful applicant will analyse transcriptome data at single cell resolution to infer the cellular phenotypic effect, in disease and/or in normal physiology.

The post-holder will be a highly talented postdoctoral fellow with strong statistical and/or analytical skills, and with an interest in single cell data analysis. A good knowledge of current issues in single cell data generation and analysis along with an understanding of genomics and statistical theory are highly desirable.

This post is available on a fixed term basis for a period of 2 years.
