Position available in the Bioinformatics Support Unit, Newcastle

Further to my last post, I am able to announce the availability of a position in the BSU, to work with me (it’s my old job!)

Official details are below, or you can find the full ad on the Newcastle University website.

Experimental Scientific Officer, Bioinformatics Support Unit

£27,428 to £35,788 per annum

Closing Date: 11 September 2011

The Bioinformatics Support Unit at Newcastle University is a successful cross-Faculty service providing high quality scientific support for a range of bioinformatics projects.

We require an Experimental Scientific Officer, with experience of a range of Bioinformatics techniques, to work in the Unit on the development and delivery of scientific projects and liaison with relevant academics.

You should have at least a first degree in a relevant science related subject and preferably a PhD. You will have previous experience in bioinformatics support and an understanding of UK research funding procedures.

For an informal discussion on this opportunity, please contact Dr Simon Cockell (Senior Experimental Scientific Officer).

The BSU website is a useful source of information on the kind of work we undertake. There’s a lot of analysis of high throughput data (as you would expect), but also opportunities to get involved with projects that have a bioinformatics research base. We support groups across the university, and beyond – in other north east universities and the local hospitals.
