Bioinformatics Research Officer

We are seeking an experienced and highly motivated bioinformatics researcher who will contribute to an exciting research study involving the genomic analysis of neuroendocrine tumours (NET). NET is a heterogeneous collection of tumours with a complex genetic makeup that often display unpredictable clinical behaviour. As leaders of a new international research study based at Peter Mac and with involvement of the University of Melbourne Centre for Cancer Research we aim to identify the genetic determinants of NET including associations with clinical outcome, response to therapy and functional imaging properties. The research will involve high-level bioinformatics analysis of a large series of tumour samples involving engagement with an international consortium and employing a range of genomic methods including whole genome DNA sequencing, RNA-sequencing, DNA methylation and proteomic analysis. The position will also have scope for development of new bioinformatic methods and leading novel research projects.

Candidates who wish to apply for this position MUST:

Have a PhD or Masters degree in a relevant field OR a bachelors degree and at least three years experience in a quantitative discipline such as mathematics, statistics, physics or computer science
Have >2 years experience in the application of bioinformatics to genomics data.
Have excellent skills in R and Unix programming
Possess excellent organization, communication, reporting and time management skills
