Default Sequence assembly job at the Natural History Museum in London

Post: Research Associate BBSRC Amplicons
Salary: £28,022 per annum plus benefits
Contract: 9 months fixed term appointment
Closing date: 3 October 2011

The Natural History Museum is one of the world’s leading museums, internationally recognised for its dual role as a centre of excellence in scientific research and as a leader in the presentation of natural history through exhibitions, public programmes, publications and the web.

We are looking for an experienced team player to develop a bioinformatics pipeline to accurately assemble next generation sequence data from long PCR’s into reliable contigs. A research associate is required to develop, test, and use methods for assembly of next generation sequencing (NGS) data. Methods would be developed with pooled simulated sequence data from many similar templates, and these methods would be used to assemble NGS data from several technologies (454 GLS Flx, Illumina, Ion Torrent) from multiplexed amplicon samples.

Candidates should have bioinformatic skills including facility in Perl/BioPerl or Python/Biopython, automated data handling, knowledge of basic molecular biology, experience with NGS denovo assembly. A record of published bioinformatics/computational biology peer reviewed articles and a PhD in life sciences or computational biology (or equivalent experience in a bioinformatic role) is also essential for this post.

As part of a discrete BBSRC funded project, the successful candidate will work for 5 months funded by the NHM and 4 further months funded by the BBSRC; 9 month total contract at a salary rate of £28,022 per annum. The position is full-time (41 h per week), available immediately and will terminate no later than 31 July 2012.
