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 apply machine learning approaches to identify patterns in alternative splicing, and to ask how these are changed in tumours.

A relevant PhD, previous experience working with machine learning algorithms and coding in a mathematical environment such as R, are essential. Significant knowledge of cancer biology, genomics and analysis of 'omics data are desirable, but not a pre-requisite: applicants with strong computational skills and a desire to apply these to critical questions of cancer biology are encouraged to apply.

For informal enquiries please email Dr Crispin Miller at c.miller@beatson.gla.ac.uk

At the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute, we are committed to increasing the number of female scientists at this level and strongly encourage female applicants to apply. We have recently introduced a highly attractive, innovative maternity policy, which includes providing a postdoc with support and funding so that their projects can continue during their maternity leave.

Closing Date for all applications: 03 May 2019
