Professor Sir John Hardy’s Laboratory, based in Queen Square House, is focused on the use of genomic data to understand the genetic variability in neurodegenerative diseases. This research is being performed with the aim of improving the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neurodegenerative disorders.
The group uses high dimensional genetic and clinical data to identify and assess risk of neurodegenerative disorders in various cohorts as well as patterns of degeneration in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. The group studies several neurodegenerative disorders and works closely with other teams at IoN including the movement disorders team and the Dementia Research Centre.
You will contribute to the maintenance and management of datasets, and the development of pipelines for quality control and analysis of the data sets. Your role will have a particular focus on the use of genetic analysis techniques and bioinformatics to analyse data sets, and ideally you will also be able to build and interpret statistical models. This role will allow you to contribute to the overall understanding of neurogenetics and related research developments.
The role is available immediately and funded by the Dolby Foundation for three years in the first instance.
This role is eligible for hybrid working with a minimum of 40% on site.
