The applicant must also be highly organised, documenting their work clearly and using code repositories e.g. Git. (Training will be provided if necessary)

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. life sciences). Previous experience in RNA-Seq, epigenetics or trophoblast research would be an advantage.

Key Tasks: - Running established bioinformatics pipelines (.e.g. RNA-Seq, Whole Genome) - Analysis of data sets using Bioconductor/R packages - Presenting and explaining bioinformatics results to CTR members - Assisting with preparation and delivery of teaching materials

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3 years in the first instance.
