The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is now hiring for a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the DMDD (Deciphering the Mechanisms of Developmental Disorders) programme. Based in the Vertebrate Genetics and Genomics group at the WTSI, the successful candidate will use RNA-seq and a range of high-throughput sequence analysis tools to identify genes and regulatory networks perturbed as a result of gene knockout.
The role will involve running the DMDD sequencing workflow, from sample preparation and sequencing pipeline submission to sequence analysis and interpretation. This will include following already established protocols, but it will also require the development of new applications. The post is an excellent opportunity to learn next generation sequence analysis, and there is also scope for learning and further developing lab techniques.
The closing date for applications is 22 September 2016. View the full job description on the WTSI website.
