This highly collaborative post is funded by the MRC and forms part of an initial effort aimed at developing Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the MRC Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disorders, directed by Oscar Marin.

The research assistant will contribute to a project aimed at elucidating the mechanisms underlying cellular diversification in the developing nervous system. The post holder will be responsible for performing the data-processing, QC, and downstream analysis in response to needs from experiments being carried out.

The candidate will have an MSc, MRes or similar in machine learning, computational biology, or the mathematical, physical or computer sciences.
