VALIDATE is recruiting a new Vaccinology Postdoctoral Bioinformatician/ Computational Biologist

Please see below from the VALIDATE network:

We’re advertising for a Postdoctoral Bioinformatician/Computational Biologist for the VALIDATE Network, based at the Jenner Institute at Oxford University. VALIDATE is an international network of researchers aiming to accelerate vaccine development for four globally significant, neglected diseases, and has >280 members from 44 countries.

We are looking for a postdoctoral computational biologist, bioinformatician, mathematician, statistician or epidemiologist with an interest in immunology (experience in immunology would be a plus), who will be crucial to VALIDATE’s success. This is an exciting opportunity to work on varied datasets from VALIDATE members, and lead in their analysis. You will be responsible for generating additional learnings and outputs from the data held by our members worldwide – for instance, comparing different data sets across pathogens, or across different species. You will look for data synergies and differences, generate new findings and peer-reviewed journal publications (on which you will be an author) to advance the field. In addition, you will engage with our Network researchers to encourage sharing of published and unpublished data via the VALIDATE Data Portal, which you will manage with support from the staff at Oxford University’s Big Data Institute.

This is a Grade 7, full-time fixed-term appointment for 18 months in the first instance, with a possibility of an extension of six months and is funded by the Medical Research Council. For the full job description please visit the Job Advertisement (applications close 28 Aug 2019):
