The University of Cambridge wishes to appoint a postdoctoral scientist to join the research groups of Prof Patrick Chinnery and Dr Jelle van den Ameele at the Department of Clinical Neurosciences and the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit. The position is part of a collaborative MRC MitoCluster award, within the MRC National Mouse Genetics Network (https://nmgn.mrc.ukri.org), to develop and characterise novel mouse models of mitochondrial disease. The focus of your work will be on studying how heteroplasmic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations change over time in somatic tissues, during development and aging. You will use innovative single-cell RNA- and ATAC-sequencing, develop novel library prep and targeted enrichment protocols, and apply these in different mouse strains with novel mtDNA mutations. You will generate cell lines from these mouse strains, and perform in vitro and in vivo forward genetic screening using single-cell CRISPR/Cas9 technology, to identify novel nuclear genetic modifiers of mtDNA mutation burden. You will have access to a team of experienced bioinformaticians, but will be encouraged and trained to perform independent in-depth bioinformatic analysis of large single-cell seq datasets. You will have access to clinical samples, to apply and translate novel technology and insights towards a human disease context. You will drive the project within the laboratory, together with both group leaders and in close interaction with other members of the MRC MitoCluster. As a member of our research groups, you will participate in group meetings and internal seminars. You will assist in supervision of junior lab members. You will be encouraged to apply for external funding and receive support to undertake further training and career development. Candidates are expected to be independent, highly motivated, and keen to work collaboratively with internal and external scientists.

Location: Hammersmith Campus Job Summary Applications are invited for a talented computational biologist / bioinformatician to join the Cardiovascular Genomics and Precision Medicine Group, led by James Ware. The post is available for 3 years in the first instance. We are looking for a highly motivated and creative postdoc interested in joining our friendly international team, which spans the National Heart and Lung Institute (NHLI) at Imperial College London, The MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, and Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals. Our overall research aims are to understand the genetic basis of cardiovascular disease, particularly inherited cardiomyopathies, and to extract clinically useful information from the genome for application in patient care (see http://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/j.ware) . Duties and responsibilities Cardiomyopathies are an important health problem, as a leading cause of sudden death in young adults, and the commonest indication for heart transplantation. Traditionally understood as monogenic disorders, a substantial proportion of cardiomyopathy cases remain genetically unexplained under this paradigm. Our recent work identifies more complex architectures, and we are studying the interactions between common variants, rare variants, and the environment. We are using machine learning to integrate these genetic insights into risk models for application in clinical decision making. With a large network of collaborators around the globe we have assembled some of the best characterised cohorts of individuals with cardiomyopathies for well powered genetic study, and are combining these with studies in the UK biobank and other large-scale population data. The post-holder will be embedded in a well-established bioinformatics team, and will further have the opportunity to train with global experts in cardiovascular genetics, statistical genetics, image analysis, and machine learning at Imperial and beyond. The successful applicant will be responsible for new projects to understand the genetic architecture of inherited heart diseases, and to develop tools for precision medicine, with a particular focus leading analyses in Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). You will have the opportunity to lead planning and delivery of this project. You will work collaboratively, and will develop supervision skills working with staff scientists and academic trainees. You will be encouraged to present at national and international scientific meetings, and to engage with the public and patients about the work of the group. You will be supported in continuing professional development in order to develop a research career in academia or industry (https://cvgenetics.org/alumni/). Essential requirements PhD or equivalent experience in computer science, bioinformatics or statistical Genetics and working knowledge of human genetics and genomics. Further Information Full details are available in the on-line job description and prospective candidates should complete the on-line application process.
