Data Scientist in Microbiology and Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Molecular Microbiology Big Data Institute, University of Oxford

Applications to be received by noon UK time Wednesday 6 June 2018.

Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 p.a. One year fixed term.

The Big Data Institute (BDI) at the University of Oxford is a new interdisciplinary research centre aiming to develop, evaluate and deploy efficient methods for acquiring and analysing biomedical data at scale and for exploiting the opportunities arising from such studies.

The Data Scientist role, split between the BDI and London, will be part of a team developing systems for continuous record linkage between Public Health England and other population health records. The aims are to design record linkage algorithms, manage front ends for viewing the data source, and analyse and interpret results. We're looking for a graduate or equivalent experience in computer science, data science, statistics, or any other relevant subject with a strong quantitative component. Knowledge of databases like SQL and computer programming are needed.

The Molecular Microbiology role, based mainly at the John Radcliffe Hospital Microbiology Department, will be part of a team researching Staphylococcus aureus infection using RNA sequencing, genome wide association studies, and biochemical and immunological assays of bacterial behaviour. The aims include designing microbiological protocols, researching bacterial molecular genetics and data analysis. We're looking for a PhD or equivalent experience in a relevant subject such as microbiology, immunology, genetics or biochemistry. Experience designing protocols and basic microbiological and immunological skills are required.
