Postdoctoral Fellow: Birney Research (IndiGene) 256 views

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL-EBI) Hinxton near Cambridge, UK are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a strong computational background and interest in quantitative trait analysis to join the Birney research group to work on a new ERC funded project in collaboration with the University of Heidelberg – IndiGene.

Role and responsibilities:
  • A major part of this work is the analysis of complex phenotyping measurements for genetic association testing.
  • The optimization and/or development of reliable image processing methods for extracting robust measurements from high resolution, complex imaging datasets will be required.
  • These imaging assay types include: CT-scans of whole adult fish, high-resolution/high-throughput embryo imaging and complex free-swimming videos.
  • There will also be a need for detailed experimental protocols to be designed and agreed with laboratory staff, maintaining the essential link between experimental work and computational analysis.
  • Developing well planned experimental designs for large-scale phenotyping assays and analysis is an important part of the role.


  • Applicant must hold PhD degree in Bioinformatics, Physics, Computer Science, or related fields and will have a proven track record in computational data analysis.
  • Applicant should be skilled at developing software in a Unix-based environment as well as having an awareness of good computational practices and experimental design.
  • Knowledge of current machine learning based methods would be beneficial. Experience in database design and implementation is not required but would be considered as an advantage.


  • Apply online and submit a covering letter and CV.
