The Lynn EMBL Australia Group is seeking a bioinformatics/computational biology researcher with demonstrated experience in the analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data including in at least some of the following areas: RNAseq, ChIPseq, microRNAseq, genome sequencing, 16S rRNA microbiome profiling, or metagenomics. Prior experience with machine learning methods and experience in biomarker discovery and validation would be an asset. The successful candidate will work as part of a team that includes both computational biologists and wet-lab scientists investigating the immune system and cancer from a systems biology perspective. Active collaboration and the ability to manage multiple difference projects simultaneously is essential.
The South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) is a state-of-the-art facility medical research facility with excellent core facilities and services, including a high-performance computing cluster that is administered by the Lynn group. SAHMRI is located in the new biomedical precinct in the Adelaide central business district, close to all the amenities of the city. Adelaide boasts a Mediterranean climate, beautiful beaches and is within an hour’s drive of world-class wine regions including the Barossa Valley.
EMBL - the European Molecular Biology Laboratory - is Europe's flagship for the life sciences. The Australian government joined EMBL as an Associate Member in 2008. EMBL Australia was subsequently created to maximise the benefits of Australia’s associate membership of EMBL and does so via research projects, infrastructure and training programs across Australia. The Lynn Group is one of 20 research teams that are being established at institutes around Australia under the EMBL model.
