Genome Informatician - SA Pathology

Joining the team at SA Pathology, you will contribute to the implementation of high-throughput genetic testing technologies, in particular the establishment of genome analysis pipelines, to enable application of these new technologies to diagnostic testing.  Contributing to ongoing trials of NGS platforms, you will apply your specialist knowledge of genome analysis to perform analysis of next-generation sequencing data and teach other staff within the GMP directorate in the use of software tools.  You will contribute to the validation of NGS sequencing panels by writing custom scripts to facilitate cross-platform comparison of test results, as well as establishing whole-exome analysis pipelines for screening families affected by Intellectual Disability disorders. SA Pathology provides quality pathology services to medical practitioners of South Australia and to all South Australian public hospitals through a networked system of 18 laboratories, consisting of branch laboratories in rural hospitals, general laboratories in large metropolitan hospitals and specialist laboratories providing tertiary referral and reference laboratory services.

You will hold a Bachelor of Computer Science, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Applied Science or equivalent, preferably with experience in bioinformatics and genome analysis. Demonstrating sound knowledge of next-generation sequencing platforms and human genome biology, you will bring the ability to produce work of a high standard within a limited time frame. Along with the ability to effectively prioritise tasks and work efficiently, you will be confident in operating under limited supervision and direction as well as working within a team environment.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of South Australia - Adelaide

  • School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences

  • Eplilepsy Research Group

  • 2 year contract

The University of South Australia provides an exciting and dynamic environment for teaching and research that continually extends the boundaries of knowledge and its application. UniSA is committed to the creation and application of knowledge and is recognised internationally for its high quality applied and fundamental research. 
 
The School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences is one of four schools in the Division of Health Sciences at the University of South Australia. The School focuses on applied research and professional education, enriched by the professional knowledge of its staff, state-of-the-art facilities, and strong partnerships with industry, community, and professional bodies.
 
An international leader in epilepsy genetics research, the Epilepsy Research Group (ERG) explores the genetic causes of epilepsy. The research is aimed at identifying the genes involved in different forms of epilepsy and understanding the underlying pathogenesis of epilepsy and its co-morbidities which include autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disability and psychiatric features. 
 
To be successful, you will have completed a PhD in molecular genetics and have demonstrated experience or expertise in one or more of the following areas: 
  • Human genetics
  • Molecular biology
  • Cell biology
  • Human genomics
  • Drosophila models of human disorders
  • Drosophila neurobiology
  • Bioinformatics
  • Immunohistochemistry

A proven record of peer review publications and conference presentations together with previous research experience or knowledge in one of more of the following areas is also essential:
    

 

Candidates with previous experience in assisting or supervising students and laboratory management would be viewed favourably.

    Research Leader – Mammalian Gene Transfer Unit, Robinson Institute

    The Robinson Institute’s 450 scientists and clinicians undertake transformational research in paediatric and reproductive health. It is a flagship Institute of the University of Adelaide, and is internationally renowned for research that focuses on the early stages of life to improve the health and wellbeing of children and families across generations.

    In establishing a new Core Facility network the institute is seeking three Research Leaders at Levels B, C or D to build capability in biostatistics, bioinformatics and genomics.

    Mammalian Gene Transfer Unit: This is an opportunity for a Research Leader with recognised expertise to further develop an established laboratory facilitating gene manipulation and transfer technology for a wide range of mammalian cell biology research projects. You will maintain and supervise a fully equipped PC2 laboratory to explore molecular and cellular processes in reproduction and provide technical expertise in viral and plasmid vector construction and gene transfer technologies. A track record of high calibre research, and use of gene transfer techniques in cell biology research applications is sought.

    In establishing a new Core Facility network the institute is seeking three Research Leaders at Levels B, C or D to build capability in biostatistics, bioinformatics and genomics.

    Bioinformatics will enhance the Institute’s capability in systems biology approaches to basic science and clinical research investigating human and animal reproduction and development. Utilising bioinformatics strategies to design and analyse transcriptome, genome and proteome data sets and related studies, you will devise and address novel fundamental biology and clinical questions using large data sets, and advise on database development and analysis of unique experimental models and cohorts. High quality research experience in bioinformatics and recognised expertise with genomic and/or proteomic database development and analysis is sought.
