Reader in Translational Genomics and Data Sciences (or University Senior Lecturer or University Lecturer)


Salary: £56,482 to £65,453 (£51,702 – £54,841) and (£38,511 – £48,743).

The Department of Public Health and Primary Care, one of Europe’s leading academic departments of population health sciences, wishes to appoint a Reader in Translational Genomics and Data Sciences (equivalent to an Associate Professorship) or University Senior Lecturer or University Lecturer.

The post-holder will have a strong track record of research anchored in population health and/or biomedical questions. He/she will have a primary interest in integrating multiple domains of information (eg, genomic, “multi-omic”, epidemiological, functional) to advance understanding of disease aetiology. He/she will have strong quantitative skills, arising from a background either in a traditional (eg, statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology) or a non-traditional (eg, physics, computer science, engineering) biomedical field. He/she will have experience of handling and analysing large amounts of complex data (such as in genetic epidemiological studies), and an ability to link with mechanistic science.

The post-holder will be expected to focus principally on research related to the understanding and prevention of cardiovascular diseases and related traits. The position is closely linked to an outstanding academic environment in Cambridge, including the new NIHR Biomedical Research Unit in Donor Health and Genomics, the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus (including the European Bioinformatics Institute), and the Cambridge British Heart Foundation Centre of Excellence.

The successful candidate will be appointed on the Readership scale (£56,482 to £65,453) or Senior University Lecturer scale (£51,702 – £54,841) or University Lecturer scale (£38,511 – £48,743), depending on experience / qualifications.
