Scholarship Description:

King's College London

Applications  are invited for a postdoctoral Research Fellow in Statistical Genetics, to be  based at King’s College London and St. George’s University of London too work in  the Translational Genetics theme of the NIHR BRC NIHR Biomedical Research Centre  at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London. This is  a world leading centre for genetic and genomic research of human diseases and  traits, and houses state-of-the-art genomics equipment and bioinformatics  infrastructure within a multidisciplinary research environment. The successful  candidate will (1) provide statistical genetics analysis of association and  sequencing studies in ischaemic stroke (lead by Professor Hugh Markus, St.  George’s University of London), and (2) develop and apply statistical genetics  methodology for research projects within the Translational Genetics theme of the  Biomedical Research Centre, supervised by Professor Cathryn Lewis. This position  provides an exciting opportunity to work in cross-disciplinary research groups  applying analytical approaches to the study of human disorders, and will enable  a postdoctoral researcher in statistical genetics to consolidate their research  profile. The role will involve collaborations with high-profile researchers with  extensive patient cohorts, detailed clinical information and genetic studies  based on both genotyping and sequencing. The post holder will work closely with  Professor Hugh Markus and his research group, taking primary responsibility for  analysis of ongoing studies in ischaemic stroke. The Stroke Research Group has  access to large datasets of GWAS from ischaemic stroke with over 20,000 cases  and 70,000 controls. More widely in the Translational Genetics theme, the post  holder will contribute to current research projects providing statistical input  on study design and analysis, translating genetic findings to patient benefit.  The ability to use standard statistical genetic approaches will be expected,  including the analysis of genome-wide association studies, imputation and fine  mapping.
