We are seeking a highly driven Bioinformatics postdoctoral scientist to join the Osteoporosis and Bone Biology Division, Headed by Professor John Mattick and Professor Peter Croucher.
As part of an international collaboration between the Imperial College London, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Queen Mary University of London, this research program focuses on the identification of new genes that determine bone and joint development and function. Detailed transcriptomic and gene regulatory network analyses will identify key signalling pathways that control normal bone and joint development, function and repair, and which may be disrupted in skeletal disease. These studies will provide new models of bone and joint disease to facilitate studies of disease susceptibility, gene function and investigate new treatments.
