A PhD position is available with Dr Lucy Crooks at Sheffield Hallam in the Department of Biosciences and Chemistry. This is a bioinformatics project developing and applying methods for filtering genetic variants found by exome sequencing. It will use existing data from the UK10K project and publicly available gene expression data to investigate the genetic causes of schizophrenia. The results should be of broad interest and applicable to the NHS 100,000 genomes project. You should have a strong interest in genetics and at least a 2.1 Honours degree in either a biological subject with a maths or statistics component, physics, or computer science.… Full post
The Animal and Plant Sciences is one of the leading research departments for whole-organism biology in the UK. The department research projects in locations from the Polar Regions to the tropics, at scales from within cells up to entire ecosystems. Through our research we aim both to understand the fundamental processes that drive biological systems and solve pressing environmental problems. The Bioinformatics Hub is a new establishment aiming to develop novel computational tools and carry bio statistical analyses. Dr. Elhaik’s lab has a diverse range of activities from Molecular Evolution to Paleo genomics (see www.eranelhaiklab.org).
You will take part in the most exciting research in population genetics – understanding the story of humans.… Full post
