Starting Salary from £31,604 to £41,929 (Depending on experience) plus relocation allowance where appropriate
Initial 3 year fixed term contract (with possibility of up to 2 year extension)


A postdoctoral position is open in the newly established Computational Biology laboratory of Dr. Crispin Miller. Dr Miller's laboratory conducts cutting-edge research that exploits genomics data to ask how changes to the cancer genome impact upon tumour growth and maintenance.

We are seeking a highly-motivated scientist to investigate how genome organisation exerts regulatory constraints on gene expression, and how these are altered in tumour cells.

A relevant PhD and previous experience working with 'omics data, coding in a mathematical environment such as R, and significant knowledge of genome biology are essential.
