Cambridge Antibody Technology (CAT) is seeking to recruit
talented bioinformatics scientists to join a leading-edge
bioinformatics and computational functional genomics group.
CAT is a rapidly expanding biotech company that is developing
theraputic products both in-house and with major multinational


Senior Bioinformatics Research Scientist (Ref. SBRS)

CAT is exploiting its world-leading platform technology in a new,
multidisciplinary functional genomics program.  A position exists
for a PhD level bioinformatics scientist to play a key role.
The successful candidate will be knowledgeable about many
bioinformatics techniques (for example: large-scale DNA sequence
analysis; secondary and tertiary protein structure prediction; fold
recognition; and protein structure analysis, modelling and design).
They will have a proven track record in solving challenging
biological problems by using combinations of some or all of the
above methods in novel ways.  Experience working in a UNIX
environment (SUN, Silicon GRAPHICS) is essential.  Strong
programming skills in a scientific language would be an

For a scientist of outstanding calibre, this position offers the
chance to use genuinely diverse, state-of-the-art computational
techniques to attack some of the most demanding problems facing
modern biology.


Bioinformatics Research Scientist (Ref. BRS)
A position exists for a research scientist with a flair for
programming and algorithm design to play an important role in
the development of state-of-the-art bespoke research tools.
The successful candidate will have experience both in working
with biological databases, and also in the development of
bioinformatics software tools. Essential skills include C or
C++ programming in a UNIX environment; PERL programming;
UNIX shell-scripting; and dynamic Internet/Intranet content
creation. Experience with system administration of SUN Solaris
and SGI Irix server and desktop systems, and of developing
automated processing systems would be an advantage.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a bioinformatics scientist
interested in using and extending his or her portfolio of skills
to include the emerging technologies being used at CAT.  These
include a sophisticated Enterprise Intranet; Java-based network
computing applications; and Livewire ORACLE database integration.


CAT offers an excellent salary and benefits package, and is located
approximately 10 miles south of Cambridge.  Applicants for
either or both positions should send their CVs quoting Ref. SBRS
or BRS as appropriate to: Dr Simon M. Brocklehurst,
Head of Bioinformatics, Cambridge Antibody Technology Ltd,
