Statistical Genetics is one of the most exciting areas of life science and to make a substantial impact on healthcare. You'll work across concept, clinical validation to commercial product.
Statistical Geneticists to lead or drive the creation of new methods for the analysis & interpretation of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Data. To be successful in this area, you would need excellent communication skills, be a team player and have a desire to work collaboratively at pace towards exciting goals.
You'll also conduct DNA testing and other genetic trials, using a variety of laboratory tools as well as analyzing statistical genetic information and databases.
To succeed, you will need strong experience in creating statistical methods for the analysis of genomic data-sets, programming skills in R or Python. This should be supported by experience of building novel algorithms, computational models, data mining of machine learning.
