The successful candidate will be required to undertake research under this Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Science Research Council (BBSRC) funded grant. The project is a collaboration between Dr. Cornelia de Moor (School of Pharmacy) and Dr. Jonathan Wattis (School of Mathematical Sciences). The appointee will work in a multidisciplinary team and analyse data obtained from advanced RNA biochemistry (including RNAseq), through mathematical modelling and bioinformatic analysis to investigate rapid regulation of gene expression mediated by growth factors and inflammatory stimuli. The project is likely to lead to fundamental changes in the understanding of the regulation of gene expression and to have important implications for medicine.

Candidates should have obtained or be about to obtain a PhD, or equivalent, in a branch of applied mathematics (e.g. Mathematics, Computer Science), preferably with experience in computational or systems biology. Prior expertise in the study of mRNA metabolism or gene expression analysis would be desirable.

The post is available from 01 March 2013 and will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 3 years. Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr. Cornelia de Moor, email: or Dr. Jonathan Wattis, email: Please note that applications sent directly to these email addresses will not be accepted.
