Edmond and Lily Safra Research Fellow and UK Dri Fellow at Imperial College London

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral scholar position in bioinformatics at Imperial College London. The funding allows successful candidates to work for 4 years in the first instance. Applications are invited up to May 31, 2020.

Imperial College London is one of the world's most highly ranked universities. It has made a major commitment to neurodegenerative disease research in its new Department of Brain Science. It is the only UK (UK scholarships) University hosting two Centres for the UK Dementia Research Institute: the UK DRI Centre at Imperial and the UK DRI Care Research and Technology Centre.

Imperial College London is one of the world's most highly ranked universities. It has made a major commitment to neurodegenerative disease research in its new Department of Brain Science. It is the only UK University hosting two Centres for the UK Dementia Research Institute: the UK DRI Centre at Imperial and the UK DRI Care Research and Technology Centre. This adds to an earlier focus on Parkinson's Disease research, leadership of the UK Parkinson's Society Brain Bank and a track record of excellence in areas of neuroimaging, neurotechnologies, innovations in functional neurosurgery (neurosurgery scholarships) (and now related non-invasive MRI guided high energy (high energy scholarships) focused ultrasound methods) and translational therapeutics for Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases.

With generous support from the Edmond J. Safra Foundation and Lily Safra, a Research Fellowship programme was initiated in 2016 for postdoctoral researchers of demonstrated ability and highest potential. The Fellowships enabled career development of its holders as independent academic researchers and fostered the development of new areas of research in the Department of Brain Sciences. Fellows developed novel ideas or methods and tested bold hypotheses. All have now progressed to new faculty positions at Imperial or other UK universities.

With additional generous support from the Edmond J. Safra Foundation and in conjunction with the UK DRI Centre at Imperial, we now want to appoint another Research Fellow. This is designed as a career development post for an outstanding scientist ready to begin setting up an independent research programme. We are looking for our exceptional people who are willing to take risks to pursue important objectives addressing any of a broad range of interests in bioinformatics (latest bioinformatics scholarship positions) (including, e.g. specialisations in systems/computational neuroscience, 'omics or population studies), translational molecular cell or neuropathological studies or advanced neuroimaging intended to further the fundamental understanding, diagnosis, monitoring or treatment of Parkinson's disease.

Key responsibilities include developing own research profile within the Department that can lead towards international excellence in the chosen area, writing scientific papers and having an active role on newly developed research projects. You will be responsible for presenting research work in national and international meetings. As well as this, core duties will include obtaining independent external funding for research within the tenure if the post and collaborating with other nation and international groups.

You must have A PhD or equivalent higher research degree in a relevant field plus post-doctoral or equivalent additional research training. A previous research and publication record with evidence of potential for international excellence and leadership in the chosen area of science is also necessary.

As this post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, at the appropriate level, will be required for the successful candidate.

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA),which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research/
