Cambridge, UK: postdoc position, parasite genomics PDF Tisk Email
Postdoctoral Fellow - Parasite Genomics
Salary range: GBP 30202 to GBP 37860 per annum plus excellent benefits.
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and ambitious Postdoctoral
Fellow to play a leading role in a large, collaborative project using
genomic approaches to understand the genetics of anthelminthic drug
resistance in Haemonchus contortus and Teladorsagia circumcincta, the most
important gastrointestinal nematode parasites of small ruminants.
 The post
is funded by BBSRC, and will be for 3 years in the first instance, with
the possibility of extension for an additional 2 years. Key aspects of
the role are the analysis and interpretation of whole genome resequencing
data from a genetic cross, of populations of worms from UK farms, and of
individual worms from the same populations. The role will also include
working with colleagues to produce a reference genome for T. circumcincta.
The project aims to leverage the understanding of anthelminthic resistance
we gain to develop practical guidance for on-farm management, and so
will involve collaboration with vets, parasitologists, modelers and
economists (https://bugconsortium.wordpress.com). Strong candidates will
need excellent communication and organizational skills, as explaining
the results of genomic analyses to these professionals in an accurate
but accessible way will be critical. The post will be based with the
parasite genomics group, a diverse and collaborative research environment,
and  the institute has unparalleled resources and expertise available
to support genomic research.
This post is fixed-term for 3 years in the first instance, possible
extension to 5 years.  Closing date for applications is: 29th March 2015.
