Applications are invited for the position of a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis to join the Computational Biology and Single-cell Genomics team led by Dr Adam Cribbs at the Botnar Research Centre, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS), Oxford.
As a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis you will lead the computational analysis of several single-cell and spatial genomics datasets, as well as the development of long-read single-cell sequencing workflows and statistical frameworks. You will also, work closely with clinical and laboratory researchers to facilitate the design and execution of experiments, data sharing and writing of manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals, while communicating results in regular meetings, by poster and oral presentations at scientific meetings, or via other suitable means, and to act as a source of information and advice to other members of the group, training and supervise graduate and undergraduate students as appropriate.
It is essential that you have a successful track record with the statistical analysis and interpretation of complex genomic data sets, and hold a PhD/DPhil (or near completion) in a discipline of direct relevance to computational single cell genomics research (Statistics / Mathematics / Bioinformatics / Computational biology). You will have a passion for problem-solving and research in the areas of genomics and single-cell biology that is grounded in expert-level knowledge or experience, as well as strong competence with at least two programming languages (preferably the programming language Python and the statistical language R). Also, excellent organisational and project management skills, able to manage both time and records effectively. Also, having degree-level training in biological sciences/immunology or equivalent experience, and experience with the analysis of multi-modal genomics datasets, as well as a strong publication track record and experience of presenting work at meetings would be desirable.
This is a full-time fixed-term appointment for 3 years.
The closing date for this position is 12 noon on Friday 12th March 2021. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
牛津大学(University of Oxford)，简称“牛津”(Oxford)，位于英国牛津，是世界著名的公立研究型大学，采用书院联邦制。 牛津大学与剑桥大学并称“牛剑”，并且与剑桥大学、伦敦大学学院、帝国理工学院、伦敦政治经济学院同属“G5超级精英大学”。
牛津大学的具体建校时间已不可考，但有档案明确记载的最早的授课时间为1096年，之后1167年得到了英国皇室的大力支持而快速发展。 牛津大学为英语世界中最古老的大学，也是世界上现存第二古老的高等教育机构。 该校涌现了一批引领时代的科学巨匠，培养了大量开创纪元的艺术大师、国家元首，其中包括27位英国首相及数十位世界各国元首、政商界领袖。 牛津大学在数学、物理、医学、法学、商学等多个领域拥有崇高的学术地位及广泛的影响力，被公认为是当今世界最顶尖的高等教育机构之一。 截止至2019年3月，牛津大学的校友、教授及研究人员中，共有69位诺贝尔奖得主(世界第九)、3位菲尔兹奖得主(世界第二十)、6位图灵奖得主(世界第九)。
