Lecturer Above the Bar in Genomics Data Science and in Clinical Bioinformatics in the Discipline of Bioinformatics.

Applications are invited for two positions as permanent Lecturer Above the Bar in Genomics Data Science and in Clinical Bioinformatics in the Discipline of Bioinformatics at the University of Galway.

The University Galway is a publicly funded university, one of the top three universities in Ireland, in the top 1% in the world according to QS rankings, and has earned international recognition as a research-led university with a commitment to highest-quality teaching and research. The university plays a leading role in Bioinformatics and Genomics Data Science nationally and is the lead institution of the SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomics Data Science. This reflects the commitment to and strong track record of the university in Bioinformatics research, which has translated into high quality research-led teaching programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

This posts are located in the Discipline of Bioinformatics, in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences. Academics in the School span the full range of the mathematical sciences from applied areas to pure mathematics, with excellent opportunities for collaborations that can underpin the applied areas and find new applications for theoretical advances.  The Discipline of Bioinformatics has particular research strengths in applications of machine learning, in cancer and complex disease genomics and in the development and application of novel methods to analyze high throughput data generated using a wide range of genomics technologies and a strong history of collaboration both within and beyond the School. The post in Clinical Bioinformatics will have a joint affiliation with and an expectation of contributing to programmes of biomedical research and education in the School of Medicine.

We are seeking to recruit two talented and committed permanent lecturers (one in Genomics Data Science and one in Clinical Bioinformatics) for teaching, research and service. Applicants are invited from researchers with experience of any area of Genomics Data Science, defined to include Data Science applied to genome-scale molecular data of any kind, or of Clinical Bioinformatics. The latter post is suited to researchers with experience of the development and/or application of computational tools and approaches for the analysis of large-scale molecular biological data with a view to supporting or making discoveries with implications for improving human health.

The successful candidates will demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching and supervision at all levels, and should have a good track record in research and scholarship in Genomics Data Science or Clinical Bioinformatics. They will demonstrate an interest in participating in academic administration, and engagement with industry and/or society regionally, nationally and internationally.
