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

PREDICT-Meso is a multidisciplinary, international endeavour that connects world-class Mesothelioma research teams, enabling them to build critical infrastructure and deliver a transformative programme of pre-clinical and clinical research, and to share new knowledge quickly with global partners.

A position is available within the Computational Biology group to develop bioinformatics software to support the analysis and sharing of multiomics data arising from the PREDICT-Meso Accelerator Network.

The post will focus on developing the bioinformatics infrastructure required to support data sharing and dissemination within the PREDICT-Meso network. This will involve developing tools and processes to support comparative-multiomics analysis, the upload of data into public genome repositories, alongside the design and implementation of workflows that encapsulate multiomics data and their associated clinical annotation in R/BioConductor objects. These will be used to support data exchange between computational biologists and bioinformaticians around the world.

The successful applicant will have a PhD or Masters degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science or a related discipline OR an undergraduate degree in computer science or a related discipline with a proven track record in software engineering. They will have significant software development experience and excellent coding skills and will relish bringing these skills to bear in a highly dynamic and collab

orative environment. Significant experience coding in R, while not a pre-requisite, would confer a significant advantage, as would direct knowledge of working with genomics data.
