We're looking for a genetic statistician who will play a key role in our internationally leading stroke genetics programme. The Cambridge Stroke Research Group has an international reputation in stroke genetics, having played a central role in the major advances which have been made over the last 10 years. We have access to an unrivalled amount of data including both GWAS in polygenic stroke, and WGS in monogenic stroke, both locally and via our extensive International Collaborations.

We are looking for a dynamic post-doc who will not only support and help develop our ongoing programme, but develop their own research areas. There are exceptional facilities on the Biomedical campus at Cambridge, and the post-holder will have opportunities to collaborate with many of these- we have existing collaborations with The Cardiovascular Epidemiology/Genetics Unit in Public Health Medicine, the MRC Biostatistics Unit and the Sanger Centre, and other world leading groups to interact and collaborate with.

The appointment could be either at Senior post-doc level as a Senior Research Associate, or at Research Associate level according to experience.
