A opportunity at IHI!

Duties and responsibilities

We are seeking to expand our team of scientists working at the interface of phenomic information from electronic health record data and genomic information. Our team at UCL plays leading roles in Health Data Research UK (HDR UK), in multi-omic cohorts such as CORUM, UCLEB, in Biomedical Research Centre initiatives to embed genomic information in clinical care, and in international consortia.  

Key requirements

You will have a PhD in statistical genetics, genetic epidemiology or bioinformatics; a relevant publication track record; and an interest in clinical applications. Experience in the analysis of genetic data, and the application of complex statistical models or statistical learning approaches would be advantageous. Experience of accessing, curating, analysing and interpreting electronic health record data from diverse sources is an advantage; however, for candidates without this expertise, in-post training will be available. The post-holder will be motivated and resourceful, an effective, independent worker, and a collaborative member of an international multidisciplinary team. We place a strong emphasis on supporting career development and on the potential for independence.
