The School of Medical and Health Sciences at Edith Cowan University (ECU) offer undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. Academics in the School are involved in research and teaching relating to a wide range of health disciplines and have a growing international reputation for academic and research excellence, particularly in the fields of genomics, glycomics and chronic diseases prevention.
We are currently looking for someone who is seeking to develop their research career by working with leading researchers in genomics and chronic disease prevention.
The Post-Doc Researcher will design, implement, and/or apply statistical algorithms to analyse and integrate multiple sources of genomic data toward the identification of novel therapeutic targets and of diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers.
To be successful, you will have expertise in the analysis and interpretation of sequencing data (DNA, RNA, protein, glycan) and its integration with other data sources, including disease risk prediction and classical biochemistry biomarker (e.g., BP, BMI, CRP, Lipids, Triglycerides, FG) evaluations.
You will participate in an ongoing project of “glycan profiling project for T2DM” on early disease detection and prevention.
The successful candidate will have a desire to work within a team and will have strong scientific written, verbal, and electronic communication skills, such as manuscript writing and scientific presentation skills.
You must also have:
- A PhD in a relevant field and experience in modelling, manipulating large-scale genomic data and efficient utilization of computer clusters.
- Familiarity with bioinformatics tools and databases for the analysis of genetics data.
- Record of peer-reviewed publications as a first author.
- Statistical analysis experience using R, SAS, or STATA required and programming abilities such as python or Perl is desired.
