Computational Biologist

Prof Crispin Miller


Starting Salary from £24,776 to £41,536 (depending on experience) plus relocation allowance where applicable. 

Computational Biology and Data Science are a fundamental aspect of our Research programme and are supported by a core research-active Bioinformatics team that works collaboratively with groups throughout the Institute. A non-time limited position is available for a computational biologist to join this team.

This post will be responsible for the analysis of complex multi-omics and imaging data arising from research collaborations across the Institute. Major aspects of the role will involve working with spatial-genomics and single cell data, and their integration with bulk-tissue derived datasets. The successful applicant will have experience of univariate and multivariate statistics, and a proven track record analysing high dimensional datasets, such as RNA sequencing data.

You must possess a PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology, or a related discipline, be highly skilled in bioinformatics data analysis, and have substantial experience coding in a language such as R or Python.

In addition, you must possess excellent communication skills enabling you to interact effectively with individuals from a variety of scientific backgrounds, and the ability to listen and present solutions in a clear and understandable way. The ability to problem solve, multi-task and work as part of the wider Computational Biology team is essential for this role.

All applications must be made via our website. If you wish, you can contact Prof. Crispin Miller on for an informal conversation.

The closing date for applications is 30 September 2021
