Postdoc Available in Statistical Genetics

The closing date for applications for this post is noon on Wednesday 15th April 2020.

We are seeking an exceptional researcher with a track record in methods development for Statistical Genomics and an interest in Infectious Disease to join our group at the Big Data Institute. Our research focuses on Bacterial Genomics, Genome-Wide Association Studies and Population Genetics. The aim of the post is to conduct innovative research within the group's range of interests and to make use of the opportunities afforded by our outstanding collaborators. We welcome candidates who wish to use the opportunity as a stepping stone to independent funding.

The Oxford University Big Data Institute (BDI) is an interdisciplinary research centre aiming to develop, evaluate and deploy efficient methods for acquiring and analysing biomedical data at scale and for exploiting the opportunities arising from such studies. The Nuffield Department of Population Health, a partner in the BDI, contains world-renowned population health research groups and is an excellent environment for multi-disciplinary teaching and research.

The Postdoctoral Researcher in Statistical Genomics will join our team which has expertise in microbiology, genomics, evolution, population genetics and statistical inference. Responsibilities include planning a research project and milestones with help and guidance from the group, preparing manuscripts for publication, keeping records of results and methods and tracking milestones, and disseminating results.

To be considered, you need to hold, or be close to completion of, a PhD/DPhil involving statistical methods development. You also need experience of large-scale statistical data analysis, evidence of originating and executing your own academic research ideas and excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to work closely with others in a team.
