The University of Dundee enjoys an international reputation for excellence that attracts top-class students and academics from across the world – with over 140 countries represented in the University community.
To strengthen the precision medicine research capacity in the GoDARTS group at Dundee, we are seeking a senior bioinformatician and/or a statistical geneticist who has a proven record of peer reviewed publication and can play a leading role in the Pearson group. This post will be ideal for scientists looking for a position to apply their analytical skills in a data rich environment. Over the last few years, the group has made a major contribution to the field of pharmacogenomics of metformin response and statin response. The post holder will have an opportunity to lead projects in functional characterization of drug response loci, take a systems biology approach to the drug response phenotype and glycaemic deterioration, or expand the investigations into other diabetes and non-diabetes phenotypes available (including all drug treatments, imaging data, diabetes complications, CVD outcomes).
This is a PhD level role. Candidates are expected to have a PhD in a numerate discipline, i.e. statistics, mathematics, epidemiology or equivalent.
Potential applicants are encouraged to have an informal discussion about the post with Professor Ewan Pearson firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr Kaixin Zhou email@example.com
