The Algorithms and Bioinformatics Group at the Department of Informatics, King’s College London is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher to undertake research in the development of novel computational approaches for the analysis of biological networks. Particular emphasis will be given in the development of optimisation methodologies in applications that include dynamic networks, overlapping network memberships or directionality information.
Deadline: 12 Dec 2012
Applicants should have a proven research record in the development of algorithms for the analysis of networks, particularly in medium to large size cases. Previous experience in the analysis of biological networks (e.g. genomic or disease applications) is desirable. Applicants should have a PhD in Bioinformatics or related algorithmic discipline. The post is fixed-term for two years and is available immediately or as soon as possible thereafter.
Applicants for this position must have a PhD and good research experience in the development of algorithms for the analysis of networks, particularly in biological or biomedical applications.
Main Duties and Responsibilities
• Conceptual design of novel algorithms for the analysis of large biological networks • Particular applications to be developed include the analysis of dynamic information (as in time series data), weighted networks, overlapping modules and directionality. • Writing papers and reports • Result dissemination to the steering committee of the project as well as to international conferences
Essential Elements of the Person Specification
• Must possess good computer programming skills (e.g. perl, java or other), statistical programming (R, Matlab or other), mathematical modelling and optimisation experience • Must maintain a systematic record of scientific outcomes and compose research publications • Must plan own research schedule and workload to ensure that the overall project milestones and objectives are met. • Must plan and prepare journal publications, conference presentations and research seminars.
