Postdoctoral Fellow - Sequencing Informatics : Cambridge, United Kingdom

Postdoctoral Fellow – Sequencing Informatics

Salary range: £30202 to £37860 dependent on experience

Fixed-term for 3 years

We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced computational scientist to develop genome assembly algorithms using 3rd generation sequencing data. The postholder will be required to run assembly pipelines and provide feedback to aid development of in-house assembly algorithms.

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a world leader in genomic research, with an expanding scientific programme dedicated to understanding gene function in health & disease.

In the High Performance Assembly group, part of Sequencing Informatics, we develop algorithms and software tools for de novo genome assembly and sequence alignment for various applications. Many high profile projects such as the Cancer Genome and 1000 Genomes projects need quality de novo assemblies for data analysis. The platforms of 2nd and 3rd generational sequencing offer huge amount of sequencing output at massively reduced costs but the new datasets pose significant challenges in the assembly progress. To further strengthen our bioinformatics applications development, we are looking for an outstanding computational scientist to join us working in this exciting area.

Essential Skills
• Educated to a PhD level in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, or a computational related area with 1-3 years of post-doc experiences
• Highly skilled in C/C++ programming under Unix/Linuxi
• Experiences in large scale scientific computation/simulation
• Numerical algorithm design

Ideal Skills
• Perl and/or Java and skills
• Multithread programming
• Knowledge in sequencing technology and/or genome biology
• Database design/administration
• Project management experiences

Other information
The Genome Campus is a 100-acre estate south of Cambridge in the grounds of Hinxton Hall. Nestled in the quiet countryside of these landscaped gardens, are two world-class research facilities: the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI). The site has become the British hub of biomedical science. The Campus is also home to the Wellcome Trust Advanced Course and Scientific Conferences programme and the Wellcome Trust Conference Centre.

In addition to its peaceful location the campus offers excellent facilities including a state of the art data centre, gym, two cafes, a nursery, dining facilities, a cycle to work scheme, car sharing and free campus buses from various locations around Cambridge.

Through the extensive seminar programme the Institute manages a range of scientific seminars with internal and externally invited speakers, scientific group meetings and skills development workshops. This aids learning, development and networking which are important aspects of life on campus.

Equally important to campus life is the social activities offered by the Sports and Social Club whether it is a 'Burns night supper', the Mid-summer Ball or a quiz night there are opportunities to meet with people working across the organisation.

The Benefits include: Defined Benefit Pension Scheme, Group Income Protection, Healthcare scheme, Childcare Vouchers, Nursery and Annual Leave 25 days plus Bank Holidays.
Postdoctoral Fellows are typically in their first or second postdoctoral position as part of a period of early career research training.

Closing Date for applications: 14th February 2015
