Applicants must have a PhD in Neuroscience, Biostatistics, Mathematics, Physics or related discipline, experience with scientific programming (R, Python and MATLAB) and computational biology, ideally high throughput sequence data analysis. The ability to work in a diverse group including computational and experimental neurobiologists, write clearly and succinctly for publication, prioritise own work for the deadline and present research findings with authority and coherence are also requirements. Experience in neuroscience and advanced statistics is desirable.

The post is available from July 2021 and is funded by a grant from the MRC, MNDA and UK DRI for two years in the first instance. Starting salary is on UCL Grade 7, which ranges from £36,028 to £43,533 per annum including London Allowance. Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £31,542 – £33,257 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis. If the PhD has not yet been granted, the final accepted version of the thesis must have been submitted to the degree-granting university by the start date.
