Research Officer/Senior Research Officer - UQ

The University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience is a leading global research institute. IMB was established in 2000 as UQ's flagship research institute and is the cornerstone of one of the largest bioscience research precincts in Australia.

The position will be focussed on developing novel approaches which utilise next generation sequencing technologies to accurately genotype variable number tandem repeats; and subsequently applying these approaches to investigate the genome dynamics of tandem repeats in twin-quartets.  The role will involve application of sample-preparation techniques; use of Illumina HiSeq machines and bioinformatics analyses of datasets generated.  The post-holder will work collaboratively with scientists from the Institute for Molecular Biosciences, the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, the Mater Hospital and Imperial College London, who are experts in the fields of next generation sequencing and population genetics.
