VIRAL DISEASES OF ANIMALS
INSTITUTE FOR ANIMAL HEALTH, PIRBRIGHT LABORATORY, SURREY
bioinformatics team, you will provide support to to IAH scientists
involved in quantitative biology, but will also have the opportunity to
pursue your own research. Areas of current interest include modelling of
virus evolution and host immune responses using next-generation
sequencing data; _in silico_ analysis of host genetics and genomics
data; and learning and predicting networks of biomolecular interactions
from post-genomic data sets.
In this high-profile role, you'll be
expected to seek funds for new projects and continue your excellent
track record of publication. Building collaborative research links with
other members of IAH is encouraged.
Holding a PhD or equivalent in a
relevant branch of the biosciences, you will have experience in a
recognised R&D environment. The ability to develop and manage relational
databases is essential, so we would expect proficiency in MySQL (or
similar), languages such as Perl or Python, and familiarity with R,
Bioconductor or another statistical program. Experience of writing grant
applications and managing staff would be helpful.
The Institute for
Animal Health (IAH) is an institute of the Biotechnology and Biological
Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). We work to enhance the UK's
capability to contain, control, and eliminate viral diseases in animals
through highly innovative fundamental and applied bioscience.
