Vacancies in the Department

Human Resources Administrator (Maternity Cover or Secondment)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Sep 20, 2016.

Applications are invited for a Human Resources Administrator to provide support and guidance to staff and management within the Department of Biochemistry. This is a front-line role with a balance of face-to-face support and HR administration.

The successful candidate will lead and implement a range of key people objectives over the year in conjunction with the Departmental Administrator such as the Staff Development Review. The role will in addition administer recruitment of all staff, for research, academic and support, and participate in the selection of support staff.

The role requires an individual who is confident dealing with varied people issues, is able to listen and identify causes and use sound judgement. Excellent communication and organisational skills, a flexible approach to work, good IT skills, and with experience of using Microsoft Office will be essential. The ideal candidates will be self-motivated, reliable, used to dealing with highly confidential information and able to work quickly, methodically and accurately, with good attention to detail. Knowledge of using HR database systems and experience of working in a science or higher education environment would be a distinct advantage albeit, an ability to work independently and to take initiative is more important as training will be provided where required.

This role will provide excellent exposure for an administrator seeking broader development or an entry point for those seeking a start to a HR career and who show the necessary development potential and ambition.

This role is initially offered for one year as maternity cover but will also suit an individual seeking exposure through a secondment to HR in one of the largest departments within the University.

This post is fixed-term for 1 year or the return of the post holder, whichever is the earlier.

Postdoctoral Research Associate (Fixed Term)

From Jobs at the University of Cambridge. Published on Sep 15, 2016.

Computational Biologist - Deep Learning in Functional Proteomics

Suggested start date 01/11/2016

For a joint project between the laboratories of Kathryn Lilley (Cambridge Centre for Proteomics, Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge) and Markus Ralser (The Francis Crick Institute), and the mass spectrometry manufacturer AB Sciex Ltd., we seek for a motived computational biologist at postdoctoral level to join our teams. In this project we will systematically create maps of the yeast proteome by data-independent acquisition technologies, that require the computational reconstruction of mass spectrometry spectra.

The project aims to yield in the first genome-scale proteomic map of a model organism. The main part of the project will be to apply machine learning techniques, and to conceive deep learning strategies, to understand the function of so far uncharacterized genes.

The ideal candidate will have experience in the application of machine learning, and possesses a background in computational biology, or is trained in the mathematical or physical sciences, or a related discipline and has demonstrated scientific interest in biology. Training will be provided to bring the candidate up to speed with the mass spectrometric technologies that will be used as part of the project and the biological system under investigation.

Candidates must have a PhD or the equivalent in a relevant science.
