York Against Cancer 30th Anniversary Research Fellow/Lectureship in Cancer Informatics
We are seeking a highly motivated and talented individual in Cancer Informatics to join the Department of Biology at the University of York.
The successful applicant will be expected to develop an ambitious research programme of their own, in addition to collaborating with cancer groups already in the Department to enhance their research through bioinformatics approaches. The first three years of the post will be funded as a research fellowship by York Against Cancer as part of their 30th Anniversary year celebrations. Upon completion of the research fellowship, the position will then convert to a tenured Departmental-funded lectureship, although further outside independent research fellowship applications are encouraged.
You will have a strong first degree and PhD and be fully cognisant of bioinformatics approaches applied to human cancer, including the use of public databases and experience of multiple NGS datatypes and sequencing technologies. You should be enthusiastic and have the collaborative skills and knowledge to work with others in multidisciplinary teams in order to validate informatics findings through biological and clinical evidence. You will have an appropriate academic professional and teaching qualification or a willingness to complete the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice.
The starting salary for this post is £38,832 a year.
This is a full time, open contract. If you have further enquiries, please contact Professor Jenny Southgate on telephone number: +44 (0)1904 328705 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org For an alternative contact please email email@example.com
