We are looking for an computational biologist or bioinformatician with relevant experience to lead a BBSRC/TSB funded project to develop RADtag genetic mapping for Aedes mosquitoes. This knowledge will provide novel applied solutions for disease vector control.
You will have a PhD in biology or computational biology and relevant experience. The post is available for 1 year initially with the possibility of extension depending on funding.
You will form part of a team that is funded by the BBSRC and TSB in conjunction with the SME Oxitec. The team is focused on mosquito genomics and genetics to provide novel applied solutions for insect and disease control. The project is funded for 1 year initially, with possible extension depending on funding.
The position will be based in the Centre for Genomic Research under the direction of Alistair Darby. Duties will primarily involve the bioinformatic analyses of RADtag data to improve the genetic maps of Aedes mosquitoes. You will interact with a wider group of bioinformaticians and biologists and will be expected to present findings at lab meetings and conferences and to prepare manuscripts for publication. You will be diligent and have the knowledge and experience to develop and implement software tools. The ability to plan workload and keep accurate scientific records is important along with the ability to work as part of a team and also independently, once appropriate guidance has been provided.http://www.eurosciencejobs.com/job_display/89212/Postdoctoral_Research_Associate_RADtag_Genetic_Mapping_for_Aedes_Mosquitoes_University_of_Liverpool_Faculty_of_Health_and_Life_Sciences_Institute_for_Integrative_Biology_Liverpool_United_Kingdom
