We are seeking an individual with an exceptional track-record in bioinformatics involving development of dynamic web applications, likely coming from a background in research or clinical bioinformatics. The post holder will contribute to the CanGene-CanVar program, through developing an online database and undertaking analyses relating to better understanding variation in cancer susceptibility genes.
A key element of the role will be development of a relational database for clinical diagnostic use containing multiple sources of genomic variant data. The post holder will work with the UK NHS clinical and diagnostic laboratory community to evolve database content, functionality and front-end operability. In addition, deploying statistical, bioinformatic and machine-learning approaches, the postholder will undertake novel analyses of these and related variant data to glean novel insights into variant pathogenicity.
This post will be well suited to an individual who wishes to work in an academic environment but to develop resources of direct clinical relevance and usage, who has a clinical or academic background in genomics along with strong skills in development of dynamic web applications.
Informal enquiries are welcome and can be made to Professor Clare Turnbull.
