We are seeking a Genomic Data Analyst and Modeller with excellent analytical and data modelling skills to join the Bioinformatics Core at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics (WHG).

Your role will involve analysis and integration of data from single cell profiling approaches as well as bulk RNA-sequencing, DNA/exome sequencing, functional genomics, and epigenetics datasets, sometimes combined in large-scale multi-omic studies.

It is essential that you hold a PhD (or close to completion) in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Statistical Genomics or related fields. You will have demonstrable experience and practical success in biostatistics or bioinformatics applied to genomic data types, including data processing, analysis and interpretation. You must have advanced proficiency in the use of statistical programming languages (R and/or Python). It will be required that you have the ability to organise and prioritise work efficiently whilst delivering results to the required standard and to an agreed schedule. Excellent communication skills, both written and oral, and the ability to interact and communicate with colleagues with a wide variety of backgrounds is essential.
