Applications are invited for a post-doctoral Research Associate to join the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre (OCARC) in the Division of Cancer at Imperial (Hammersmith Campus). The OCARC was established with core funding from the charity Ovarian Cancer Action and comprises over 70 researchers from Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Imperial College London. The post holder will take a lead role in newly funded multi-disciplinary programmes of research funded by OCA on ovarian cancer
The successful applicant will use whole genome bisulphite sequencing and target capture bisulphite sequencing to discover and validate novel DNA methylation biomarkers of cancer risk and risk exposures and to develop a risk model for ovarian cancer. Applicants must demonstrate experience of laboratory skills related to next generation sequencing, molecular epidemiology, bioinformatics and genomics and be familiar with statistical programming in R. Experience with analysis of sequencing datasets and using high performance computing environments would be beneficial.
