UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
Lecturership in Bioinformatics
Department of Statistics in association with St John's College
The Department of Statistics is experiencing an exciting period of
growth and development, and is one of the leading UK departments.
The University seeks to appoint a lecturer in bioinformatics to take up
this post from 1 January 2005, or from a mutually agreed later date. The
Lecturership will be held in conjunction with a Supernumerary Fellowship
at St John's College.
The University interprets bioinformatics widely, to include the whole
range of applications of mathematical, statistical, or computational
techniques to the analysis of data arising in modern molecular genetics.
Whilst applications are welcomed from candidates with research interests
in any area of methodological development in bioinformatics, there is a
strong preference for candidates working on post-genomic problems which
complement or build on existing strengths in bioinformatics within the
Department of Statistics. These include structural bioinformatics,
comparative genomics, statistical alignment, population genomics and
genetic variation, human disease studies, and analytical tools for
modern experimental techniques such as gene expression arrays,
proteomics, metabonomics etc.
The University salary for the post is on a scale up to £45,707 p.a.
Additional college allowances are available as set out in the further
particulars. This post is in an area currently designated as a shortage
subject under the HEFCE "Golden Hello" scheme. Appointees may therefore,
under certain conditions, be eligible for a 3-year salary supplement.
Entitlement to sabbatical leave accrues at the rate of one term's leave
for every six terms with normal duties.
