Vacancies at ICS

HRH plaque

We are currently advertising for a Senior Research Associate (Cardiovascular Biocurator) and a Research Associate (Cardiovascular Biocurator). The application deadline for both posts is Friday 19th April.

Senior Research Associate (Cardiovascular Biocurator) full time

Applications are sought for the above position in the Centre for Cardiovascular Genetics (CVG), part of the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science (ICS). The post is part of the Cardiovascular Annotation Initiative, a collaboration between UCL and the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), funded by the British Heart Foundation.

The Gene Ontology (GO) vocabulary is the established standard for the functional annotation of gene products. By using GO to curate scientific literature and by integrating results from high-quality high-throughput experiments, and by capturing protein-protein interaction data, we will create an information-rich resource for the cardiovascular-research community, enabling researchers to rapidly evaluate and interpret existing data and generate hypotheses to guide future research. The post holder will work as part of a small team to annotate and curate cardiovascular relevant gene information. As well as general work on the grant, the post holder will independently manage a discrete microRNA project.

The position is funded for 5 years in the first instance.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in a relevant biological science, with a record of publication, experience in postdoctoral research and the ability to work as an independent researcher. Strong attention to detail and an analytical, methodical working style are essential. These attributes are more important than previous experience in GO annotation, as training in this will be provided.

Salary inclusive of London allowance: £40,216 to £47,441 per annum
