Centre for Genome Translation

A new transformative Centre : Join a team of 10 scientists being hired  to perform translational research – using genomics technologies to deliver definition of mechanisms of disease, target prioritisation, predictive models and biomarkers for patient stratification. The CGT partners with industry and academics to deliver discovery.

We are seeking outstanding individuals highly motivated to deliver on health using genomics

Post Doctorals
Development of post genome drug discovery systems
Working with our drug/variant/signature/disease/pathway interaction system and the Genome Translation Commons, you will manipulate and interpret WGS variant datasets and integrate them with our pathway interaction systems to yield drug signature characterisation that informs target prioritisation in Neurodegenerative diseases.

Interpretation and translation of genome variation in neurodegeneration systems
Working with leading clinicians, industry and academic partners in the United Kingdom, Europe and in the USA at Harvard, together with our US industrial partners you will help characterise, prioritise, and interpret individual and sets of genetic variants that are associated with diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS. You will bring your expertise to bear on integrative analyses that use computational approaches to genetically informed mechanistic models that ultimately inform decisions on pathway, process and gene models for drug and therapeutic intervention.

Lecturer in Clinical Bioinformatics/Genomics – Open 

We seek a lecturer who has the ability to perform research led teaching of Bioinformatics and Genomics relevant to Genome Medicine. The applicant will have broad experience in genetics and clinical bioinformatics, next generation sequencing analysis and variant calling, and will be familiar with the application of these technologies to selection of clinically relevant variants. The lecturer will be Co-Director of our flagship MSc in Genome Medicine, and will benefit from a supportive community within the University and across the NHS Genome Medicine Centre for Yorkshire and the Humber. In addition there will be opportunities to develop curriculum in bioinformatics and genomics across the University, and together with the National Genome Medicine MSc programme sponsored by HEE, NHS and Genome England develop online coursework with international visibility in Genome Medicine and Clinical Bioinformatics.
We are one of nine national centres providing co-ordinated training in Genome Medicine. The Master’s in Genomic Medicine has been developed to provide a multi-disciplinary and multi-professional course in genomics that can be applied to clinical practice and medical research.
