We are looking for an enthusiastic team-player to join the Oxford Biomedical Data Science (OBDS) training programme in the role of Computational Biology Trainer/Analyst. This unique position provides the opportunity to both play a key role in training biomedical scientists in data science and lead innovative research and software development projects in computational genomics.
You will hold an MSc or PhD in a quantitative discipline (e.g. bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science, physics, statistics, engineering or mathematics). You will have experience and enthusiasm for developing and delivering training in computational biology/data science methods and keeping up with the latest advances in these areas (e.g. machine learning, cloud computing). You will be proficient in software development in Python, following software engineering best practices.
At the MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology (CCB), we work alongside scientists and clinicians to realise the potential of ‘big data’ in biology by exploiting complex information to make discoveries that benefit human health. The CCB encompasses an international team of over 50 computational biologists, working closely with 500 lab-based scientists and clinicians.
The position is available fixed-term for 3 years, funded by a Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) Award and the OBDS Training Programme.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
