Postdoc Position [internal Applicants Only] at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoctoral position in bioinformatics. Applications are welcome before February 26, 2019.

We are seeking to appoint a Research Associate to join a team led by Professor Sharon Peacock in the Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

This position offers the opportunity to co-ordinate and provide oversight to a project funded by the Cambridge Health Innovation Challenge Fund, an award from the Wellcome Trust and Department of Health and Social Care.

The project focuses on translating bacterial genomics into routine clinical microbiology and infection control practice. This includes the development of assays and tools that support an end-to-end sequencing pipeline and rapid informatics analysis, followed by application to outbreak investigation and patient care.

You will have excellent bioinformatic analysis skills with proven knowledge of the use of a range of software tools that relate to bacterial genomics. Experience in all aspects of clinical bacterial sequencing is essential. This should include practical knowledge of DNA preparation and sequencing, knowledge of analysis tools required to determine bacterial relatedness and predict phenotypic resistance, and its application to clinical care.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 December 2020 in the first instance.

Please ensure that you upload your Curriculum Vitae (CV) and a covering letter in the Upload section of the online application. The covering letter should outline how you match the criteria for the post and why you are applying for this role.

Please include details of your referees, including e-mail address and phone number, one of which must be your most recent line manager
