Postdoc Position at Imperial College London

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral associate position in bioinformatics at Imperial College London, UK. The initial contract for this position is 24 months and posible to extend. The deadline for applying is December 14, 2018.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the appointment of a Data Science Research Associate to join the Imperial Phenome Centre (IPC) based at Imperial College London. The Centre undertakes metabolic phenotyping from a diverse portfolio of research collaborations spanning clinical medicine to large-scale population health studies from within Imperial and beyond. The IPC specialises in state-of-the-art targeted and untargeted approaches using a combination of NMR, chromatographic and MS technologies alongside innovative informatics approaches. With a key focus on building strong research collaborations, identifying biologically and clinically relevant biomarkers, and developing innovative technological and bioinformatics approaches required for the analysis of "big data", this is an exciting role within a highly motivated and supportive team

The Centre, in operation since June 2012 (previously as the National Phenome and Clinical Phenotyping Centres), provides high-throughput, high-quality analysis of samples and engages in academic and industrial collaborations for projects requiring complex data analysis and interpretation across a wide range of research areas. It is a national resource to enable researchers (academic and commercial) to have access to state-of-the-art NMR and Mass Spectrometry facilities and expertise at Imperial to undertake this work. Working as part of a team, the post holder will support clinical studies from start to finish, from the initial review of study design with collaborators, through using informatics methods to ensure high quality data generation, to the final statistical, bioinformatic, and interpretive analysis of the resulting analytical data. In addition, he/she will work closely with colleagues and collaborators to deliver impactful and timely research outcomes. The post holder will drive the development of the Centre's informatic infrastructure, including developing novel data science strategies to enhance the existing in-house open source toolsets. The postholder will have an important role in ensuring good communications with colleagues across the Centers, Division, and with our customers and partners in other organisations.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in Bioinformatics, Data Science, Chemometrics, or equivalent. You will be able to demonstrate knowledge of chemometrics, chromatography and metabolite-profiling and a strong theoretical grasp of data analysis related to NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, alongside a practical knowledge of the current state-of-the-art software tools employed in these fields. You will have proven coding skills in Python, MATLAB, R, or equivalent. Proven ability to work well within a team is essential, as will excellent communication skills and the ability to work to deadlines whilst maintaining a high level of accuracy.

This post is full time and fixed term for 24 months in the first instance, and will be based at the Hammersmith Hospital Campus (East Acton) with travel as necessary South Kensington Campus and St Mary's Hospital Campus (Paddington).
