Computer Biologist

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is one of the leading 
genomics centres in the world, dedicated to analysing and 
understanding genomes. One of the organisms being sequenced is 
the zebrafish (Danio rerio), an important model organism in 
analysing vertebrate development and gene function.  

An opening has become available for a senior bioinformatician to 
help us improve the sequence analysis and to develop the system 
and strategy by which we assemble zebrafish data and present it 
to the community.  

Based in the informatics group at the Sanger Institute, your primary 
duties will involve annotation of zebrafish clones. Other key duties 
will involve integration of new datasets into the analysis pipeline 
and running whole genome analysis pipelines.  

Ideally, you will have a degree (preferably a PhD) in a suitable 
biological discipline and will be comfortable with working in a 
computer-based environment.  A knowledge of UNIX and biological 
database systems is desirable and familarity with perl or other 
scripting languages would be advantageous. We would also 
welcome applications from candidates with a strong background in 
zebrafish biology who would be keen to develop their computer 
skills. Commitment to science and a team spirit are important.  

To apply please write with your CV and current salary details
