We are looking for a Core Scientist.
The Schoenebeck group is a leader in companion animal genetics and genomics. Our research interests include skeletal form and function, domestication, and the pathogenesis of diseases. We are looking for a highly motivated, technically skilled, and intellectually curious Core Scientist to lead our efforts in functional genetics and genomics. The postholder will design and execute experiments that help to uncover the genomic architecture of skeletal morphology and domestication through use of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derivatives (the iPSCs being derived from production, companion, and wild animal species). The postholder will also support the group’s population genetics work by designing cell-based assays that assess genetic variant causality and she/he/they will collaborate with the group’s bioinformaticians to produce whole genome sequencing libraries in support of ongoing functional genomics work. The postholder will have the opportunity to participate in international collaboration and present finding at international meetings. Additional training opportunities will be made available to the postholder to enhance career development.
The position will be on grade 7 (£33,797 – £40,322) and is available initially until March 31st, 2021. Pending successful renewal of the Roslin Institute’s strategic funding, the position will be extended. Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr James Prendergast (email@example.com).
