Bioinformatician (Cancer Genomics, Melbourne)

We are hiring an experienced and motivated computational biologist to develop, maintain and apply analytical workflows for whole genome sequencing data. The position is responsible for running genome sequencing data analysis pipelines, testing and maintaining existing workflows (written for bcbio and the Common Workflow Language), expanding quality control metrics in preparation for accreditation processes and evaluating new methods with a focus on cancer sequence analysis (DNA and RNA) in collaboration with local staff and international collaborators. You will apply the developed workflows to internal and public data, work with the UMCCR staff on data management issues, and engage with researchers and clinicians to establish and continuously improve genomic reports for cancer patients.

Postdoctoral Scientist (Bioinformatics & Computational Biology) 

An excellent opportunity is available for a highly motivated and skilled bioinformatician or computational biologist to work on prostate cancer genomics within the Research Division at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. The role will involve analysis of DNA and RNA sequencing data to investigate the drivers of metastasis and therapy failure in prostate cancer.

Suitable applicants will have a PhD in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Statistics, Computer Science, Genetics or related discipline. Additional requirements include expertise in genomics, statistics and the analysis of next generation sequencing data, advanced skills in at least one of R, Python or Perl and experience working on high performance computing clusters.

The research environment will be highly collaborative, with regular interactions with cancer biologists from the Prostate Cancer Research Laboratory and bioinformaticians from the Computational Cancer Biology Program and the Bioinformatics Core Facility. The candidate will work on joint initiatives but will also be responsible for driving own specified projects.

These position will be initially offered for a fixed term duration of 12 months with the possible opportunity to extend. Remuneration will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Peter Mac offers its employees the following benefits:

  • Salary packaging 
  • Employee Assistance Program 
  • Central City location

Postdoctoral Fellow (Cancer genomics/bioinformatics) - UNSW Sydney

A postdoctoral fellow position is available within the lab of Dr Jason Wong to work on projects relating to the study of mechanisms of mutation formation in cancer and the impact of these mutations on cellular function. These projects build on recent research from the team described in Nature (https://doi.org/10.1038/nature17437). The successful applicant will carry out computational and bioinformatics data analyses, write research manuscripts and co-supervise research students. There will also be opportunities to undertake experimental research to generate data and test hypotheses, and therefore researchers with experience in laboratory-based research will be highly regarded. The position will be based within the Lowy Cancer Research Centre in the Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics team led by Dr Jason Wong.
