Senior Lecturer Bioinformatics
We are seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer in Bioinformatics to develop bioinformatics capabilities across a number of research programmes which form part of a collaboration between the King’s College London and a large biopharmaceutical company. We are significantly expanding our in-house Bioinformatics group and we are looking for a talented and motivated bioinformatician leader to play a key role in accelerating the translation of research findings into clinical practice. The postholder will be responsible for designing a major database, developing pipelines to analyse and integrate multiple biological research and clinical data streams, and generating insights that drive the elucidation of key disease mechanisms.
The position will involve bioinformatics analysis and interpretation of genetic, transcriptomic and immunological data derived from serially collected primary disease samples and associated in vivo work. The role requires experience in disease genomics and the computational research skills required to develop and deploylarge data pipelines and supervise downstream integrated analyses including modelling of complex multi-omic datasets.
The post holder will provide broad expertise in contribution to the Department and School-wide activities in the area of health informatics and Precision Medicine. They will offer leadership across the bioinformatics group to coordinate research activity in the area, and work closely with partner organisations involved in R&D. The postholder will be involved in appointing 2 junior bioinformatics posts and contribute to building the educational opportunities for bioinformatics within the school and teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students across divisions.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 4 years.
