3 Bioinformatics Research Associate Positions: Newcastle University

There are three bioinformatics jobs (one in pure bioinformatics, one in network analysis, and another in modelling/mathematical biology) currently available within CISBAN, an interdisciplinary centre studying the systems biology of ageing and nutrition. The full particulars are posted both on Nature Jobs and on the Newcastle University Job Vacancies web pages.

Below are links to the various job advertisements, as well as summaries of the jobs themselves. This is a summary of the three Nature Jobs postings, put together on a single page for easy perusal. The closing date for all of these positions is 11 January 2008. This is a great opportunity, though I may be speaking from a biased perspective as I work at CISBAN and find it an interesting and challenging workplace.

  1. Centre for Integrated Systems Biology of Ageing and Nutrition, Institute for Ageing and Health

    Research Positions

    Level F £25,134 – £32,796 p.a.
    Level G: £33,779 – £40,335 p.a.

    We seek scientists to join CISBAN, an exciting new research centre established following a major award (£6.4m) from BBSRC and EPSRC,
    to participate in studies of the mechanisms responsible for ageing and
    how they are affected by nutrition. Ageing is recognised
    internationally as a ‘grand challenge’ and is a field prioritised for
    growth. This post offer opportunities to work in an intensely
    multidisciplinary, world-class centre and contribute to the development
    and application of systems science.

    Research Associate (Bioinformation/Computing Scientist – Applications)

    To
    develop and maintain the computing software and hardware infrastructure
    for systems biology, including a central web portal integrating
    applications for data capture, storage and visualisation and high
    performance computing systems and databases, including a large Linux
    cluster.

    Job reference: A1091R

    Posts are tenable until 30 September 2010.

    Enquiries for the post may be directed to Dr Anil Wipat, School of Computing Science (email: anil.wipat@ncl.ac.uk)
    Further particulars for this post can be found on the University’s web page at http://www.ncl.ac.uk/vacancies/list.phtml?category=Research.

    Applications should be submitted by 11 January 2008 to Professor Tom Kirkwood, CISBAN Director,
    Institute for Ageing and Health, Henry Wellcome Laboratory for
    Biogerontology Research, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 6BE (email:
    tom.kirkwood@ncl.ac.uk).

    Research Associate (Bioinformatician – Network Analysis)

    To
    research and develop novel methods of representing and integrating
    molecular and cellular data as networks and apply this methodology to
    identify novel proteins and elucidate novel pathways involved in the
    process of cellular ageing and senescence.
