Health Informatician - Health Data Research UK

We seek an experienced Health Informatician to curate electronic health record (EHR) data from a variety of sources, harmonising existing coding to ensure they are compatible with other major UK and international data repositories, e.g. UK Biobank and the CHARGE consortium. The Health Informatician will also be responsible for deriving new variables from EHR data and will contribute to the integration of molecular, genomic and imaging data with clinical information from EHRs.

Candidates should have a higher degree or equivalent experience in one of the following subjects: bioinformatics, biostatistics, computer science, mathematics, statistics. Candidates should also have: prior experience of working with large-scale data relating to healthcare and deriving variables from electronic health records; experience of programming in a structured programming language such as SAS, Perl, Java, or Fortran and; excellent attention to detail.

Health Data Research UK is the new national institute for data science for health, which is being established in 2018 with long term (10 year+) funding support from research councils, UKRI, charitable and governmental research funders. The mission of HDR UK is to drive improvements in the health tripartite of patients and populations through research at regional and national scale. To deliver this mission, the Wellcome Sanger Institute (WSI), EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), and the University of Cambridge (UoC) and its associated hospitals came together as the HDR Cambridge partnership.

Medical Statistician - Health Data Research UK

We seek an experienced Medical Statistician to analyse high-dimensional data arising from the integration of molecular, genomic and imaging data with clinical information from electronic health records to identify causal risk factors associated with a range of diseases. The post-holder will have access to rich, unique datasets from multiple population and patient cohorts, which include genetic, multi-omic and EHR data.

Candidates should have: i) a Masters or PhD in Statistics or another relevant subject; ii) strong statistical/quantitative skills and knowledge of high-dimensional statistical methods (eg. LASSO, ridge regression); iii) excellent statistical programming skills (e.g. Stata, R); iv) high-level report writing and presentation skills and; v) excellent verbal and written communication skills.

Senior Bioinformatician/ Database Coordinator - Human Cell Atlas

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated individual with strong organisation and communication skills and a background in cell biology or pathology; with some bioinformatics expertise. The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of database design and controlled vocabulary to assist in developing a portal for the Human Cell Atlas single cell gene expression data, hosted by the EMBL-EBI.

The Human Cell Atlas is an exciting international collaboration (https://www.humancellatlas.org/) that will use single cell genomics and other cutting-edge molecular biology techniques to refine our understanding of cell types within the human body, thereby building a platform for future transformative research in understanding tissue homeostasis and, ultimately, disease.

To allow the wider scientific community to access the findings and insights from the Human Cell Atlas we will develop a user-friendly data portal. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual able to integrate cell biology and pathology knowledge with the newly generated single cell data, making it relevant and searchable to a wide audience ranging from clinicians to biologists and computational tools developers

Applications from individuals wishing to work part time are welcome, open to discussion (minimum of ~20 hours per week, please give an indication of hours in your covering letter).  This can be discussed during the interview process.

Grade: 2 Salary per annum: 36,737 to 44,451 Full Time or Part Time: Full Time/ Part Time Contract Type: Fixed Term - Special Project Contract Length: 12m fixed term contract with the possibility of extension subject to funding Reference:83598


Senior Computer Biologist - Bacterial Genomics

We are looking to recruit a Senior Computer Biologist to join our project Juno: a global genomic survey of Streptococcus agalactiae. Juno is a major international research collaboration, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, that aims to sequence and analyse the genomes of a global collection of Streptococcus agalactiae samples to inform disease prevention strategies.

The role

The role will involve bioinformatic analysis of large genomic datasets to gain important biological insights into the pathogen population and its diversity, pathogen genetic association with disease and pathogen transmission. This post offers an exciting opportunity to join a global research consortium and to collaborate with a number of international project partners to deliver key data analysis outputs and scientific papers.

About you

We welcome application from candidates who recently completed their PhD as well as those with previous postdoctoral experience. We are seeking to appoint a talented and motivated individual with a keen interest in the application of genomic data to study pathogen biology and evolution. Ideally you would have an experience in microbial genomics, statistical genetics, computational biology, or a related discipline, with a demonstrated expertise in applying a broad range of genomic analysis approaches to complex datasets.

The team

You will be based in the Genomics of Pneumonia and Meningitis team, part of the Parasites and Microbes Programme at the Wellcome Sanger Institute. The Institute has a world class record of pioneering the use of large-scale genomic data analysis to understand pathogen biology, epidemiology and evolution. You will join a team that is engaged in many exciting research topics such as person-to-person transmission of pathogens, global spread of high-risk clones and evolution of resistance to antibiotics and vaccines. Our studies are supported by genomic, clinical and epidemiological data for thousands of samples providing opportunity for well-powered analyses. We are a multi-disciplinary team that combines the expertise of microbiologists, mathematicians and bioinformaticians. Here’s a selection of recent and past papers that gives an overview of our interests:
