Fixed Term / Full Time

The post-holder will join a large multidisciplinary team within the One Health Poultry Hub (https://www.onehealthpoultry.org/), linking researchers at the RVC with other UK based and overseas institutes. Funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund, the Poultry Hub is working across Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam to improve safe and sustainable production of poultry products and reduce the risk of zoonotic outbreaks. 

Based at the RVC, the post-holder will focus on poultry genetic, genomic and transcriptomic analysis to dissect the genomic architecture of zoonotic pathogens such as Campylobacter and Avian Influenza, and will use metagenomics and antimicrobial resistance data generated from other partners in the Poultry Hub to understand the genetics of gut microbiome and AMR in chickens. Results will complement broader host genetic, metagenomic, microbiological, epidemiological and social sciences materials to define the evolution and flow of pathogens and antimicrobial resistance factors through poultry product distribution networks in humans. 

This post will require a postdoctoral scientist who is experienced in animal genetics and next generation sequencing analysis. Previous experience of working in a veterinary or medical context will be advantageous, but not essential. 

We are looking for candidates with a PhD qualification in animal genomics/bioinformatics. Detailed below are the job description, person specifications and qualifications listing the essential and desirable requirements for the post, which will be used as the basis for the shortlisting.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Androniki Psifidi on +44 1707 669252 or email: apsifidi@rvc.ac.uk for further clarifications.

We offer a generous reward package.
