We are seeking an outstanding Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Systems Biology for a prestigious Bristol Myers Squibb /Oxford fellowship. You will work within research groups at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics and the Kennedy Institute, and lead an interactive collaboration with colleagues at Bristol Myers Squibb.
The project is to analyse the data generated from using advanced syngeneic models to explore epithelial microenvironmental crosstalk and co-evolution in solid tumours, particularly colorectal cancer. This will be facilitated and supported through regular interaction with colleagues at Bristol Myers Squibb, a leading immune-oncology pharma company.
You will be responsible for managing your own academic research and administrative activities, adapting existing and develop new scientific techniques and novel methodologies/analytical tools for analysis and data collection and testing hypotheses and analysing scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate. You will develop informatics structures to manage large datasets, including the organisation of data storage and repository solutions that meet current publishing standards and also ideas for generating research income and provide bioinformatics input into outline and full grant proposals, as a co-applicant. You will collaborate in the preparation of scientific reports and journal articles and occasionally present papers and posters and liaise with collaborators, clinicians and pathologists, to obtain samples and information.
It is essential that you hold a PhD (or close to completion) in in Biostatistics, Mathematics, Statistics, Computing, Mathematical Biology or a related subject, with demonstrable experience, ability and practical success in biostatistics or bioinformatics. You will have experience of developing scientific techniques and be proficient in the use of statistical programming languages such as R/BioConductor, together with excellent data analysis skills, including experience with analysing RNAseq data and next generation sequencing data. You will be highly organised with the ability to prioritise work efficiently, while working independently or as part of a team.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.
