Subject: Bioinformatics Openings at Barts Cancer Institute


Dear Arek and Syed,

We currently have two Bioinformatics Openings at Barts Cancer Institute to
contribute to the development of the pancreatic cancer bioinformatics
platform and analytical tools.

We recently interviewed a set of candidates but received a very small number
of applications and failed to appoint
because we were not satisfied with the quality. Hence, I am writing to ask
for your help.

Please could you bring these posts to the attention of ambitious people who
may be interested in coming to London and joining our Centre.

Many thanks.

With All My Best wishes for the New Year!
Claude Chelala

Infrastructure. The successful candidate will additionally be responsible
for pancreatic cancer literature data curation, release cycles as well as
the wider development and extension of the analytical side of this platform.
Applicants must have a PhD degree in Bioinformatics, a solid understanding
and at least two years experience in the analysis and management of high
throughput data. A high level of expertise in the use of relational
databases, in particular MySQL, is essential, as is experience in molecular
biology or cancer research and in using the BioMart technology. The
successful candidate must be an expert in the programming language Perl.
Experience of additional languages e.g. Java or C, would be highly
desirable. Familiarity with Linux network/server administration and web
application development technologies will be an advantage.
It is also essential that the candidate has clear communication skills, with
the ability to present methodologies and results succinctly and to provide
advice, training and support for researchers.
This is a full-time, fixed term appointment for 3 years. The starting salary
will be in the range of £30,229 - £31,895 per annum inclusive of London
Allowance. The benefits package for this post includes 30 days leave plus 4
