Proteomics Bioinformatician (Fixed Term)

The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) offers an exciting convergence of clinical and basic research supported by world-class facilities. The CIMR Proteomics Facility has expanded to meet the evolving demands of a rapidly developing field and now operates three Orbitrap mass spectrometers and a wide variety of software tools ranging from commercial packages to custom scripts.

An opportunity has arisen for a dedicated Proteomics Bioinformatician to help support and develop our expanding repertoire of software tools. Applicants must be educated to a degree level and ideally have post-graduate qualifications in a field requiring analysis of large datasets.

The successful candidate will have a working knowledge of statistics as applied to large datasets and research experience in programming. While a background in life sciences is not critical an understanding of mass spectrometry-driven proteomics would be beneficial and applicants with more extensive experience of proteomic mass spectrometry are encourage to apply. Above all, the successful candidate must be enthusiastic, adaptable and prepared to learn and apply new techniques and approaches as required.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 1 year in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
