Default 4-Year SFI funded Bioinformatics PhD studentship (Dublin Ireland)

NIBRT are seeking an enthusiastic PhD student to join the bioinformatics group to study the biology of Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells during the industrial production of therapeutic proteins. The central focus of this fully funded 4 year PhD program will be to develop bioinformatics pipelines to analyse multiple types of high throughput data (e.g. RNA-Seq and LC-MS\MS) and to improve our understanding of how CHO cell growth rate is regulated, particularly the role of microRNAs (miRNAs). The student will be expected to utilise existing software as well as developing CHO cell specific bioinformatics tools as required. The successful candidate will also collaborate closely with CHO cell biology scientists in the National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology ( to translate findings from their work into industrial practice.

Your Profile:

Applicants should hold or expect to receive an upper 2.1 or 1.1 degree in a relevant discipline (a good understanding of statistics and solid experience of computer programming is required). Candidates holding or expecting to receive a relevant MSc. (e.g. Bioinformatics) are particularly encouraged to apply. A biology background is advantageous but not required, training will be provided in all aspects of biology, bioinformatics and genomics required for successful completion of the programme. The ability to work as part of a team, an interest in industrially focussed research, motivation to learn new skills as well as excellent written and oral skills is essential.

What We Offer:

NIBRT are offering a funded 4 year Bioinformatics PhD studentship with generous stipend.

About NIBRT:

NIBRT is a world-class institute that provides training and research solutions for the bioprocessing industry. For further information and a virtual tour of the NIBRT facility, check out

More information:

The market value of biopharmaceutical drugs has surpassed $100 billion annually and continues to accelerate. Despite their medical and economic importance the biological mechanisms driving efficient therapeutic protein production in CHO cells remain relatively poorly understood.

Informal enquires should be directed to Dr. Colin Clarke (

How To Apply:

Applicants should email a covering letter, a motivation statement as well as outlining why you would like to do a PhD. You will also need to forward a copy of your CV along with the names of three academic referees to HR department. The closing date for this will be July 31st 2014 with a view for this position to be available from 1st September 2014. NIBRT is an equal opportunities Employer.
