Bioinformatician (postdoctoral or senior postdoctoral scientist)
The Pirbright Institute is looking for a postdoctoral scientist to execute and continue to develop bioinformatics pipelines to analyse transcriptomic data and antibody single cell sequencing data in livestock. This post is funded by a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation grant aiming to define the fine specificity of antibody responses in livestock to inform vaccine development. The research will involve refining the analysis of existing and future high-throughput sequencing data to examine the overall antibody response to vaccination and infection in cattle, buffalo, pigs and chickens. Established workflows will then be made available to as wide a range of collaborators as possible.
