Lectureship available : Genome Medicine / Clinical Translation Bioinformatics Push in Sheffield

The UK 100 000 Genomes project is actually really making a difference to treatment and approaches to healthcare in UK. Genome Medicine is rapidly being recognised as a mainstream form of healthcare - but the NHS has a lot of catching up to do. Yorkshire is not what comes to mind when one thinks of cutting edge Genome Medicine and eHealth, but in fact, the UK Government has recently invested £20M into eHEalth in the region, and confirmed another £250M for genome medicine over the next 5 years.

The University of Sheffield Medical School is moving rapidly to embrace Genome Medicine. One of several posts it has created, is a lectureship in teaching and research into genome Medicine / Clinical Bioinformatics. Several posts are being developed and the University is actively looking for the next generation of leaders in this area that would like to become part of the transition to genome health care in UK.

Lectureship in Genome Medicine/Translational Bioinformatics

The UK is home to rapid development of the science of Genome Medicine, an emerging medical discipline that uses genomic information about an individual as part of clinical care, health outcomes and policy implications. The Genome England project is driving the sequencing of 100 000 samples, providing deep new insight into the genomes associated with disease.


The Genomic Medicine group within the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, invites applications for a position as a Lecturer in Bioinformatics/Genomic medicine.


The post builds on our rapidly growing strengths in biomedical genomic research. We work closely with Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Trust and The Sheffield Children's Hospital NHS Trust. The University plays a key academic partner role in the Yorkshire and Humber Genome Medicine Centre that is recruiting NHS patients to the Genomics England initiative. We are preferred providers of the NHS England MSc in Genomic Medicine.


We seek a highly motivated lecturer who has the ability to perform research led teaching of Bioinformatics and Genomics relevant to Genome Medicine. The applicant will have broad experience in genetics and clinical bioinformatics and next generation sequencing analysis and will be familiar with the application of these technologies to selection and interpretation of clinically relevant variants. The lecturer will be Co-Director of our flagship MSc in Genome Medicine , and will benefit from a supportive community within the University and across the NHS Genome Medicine Centre for Yorkshire and the Humber. In addition there will be opportunities to develop and deliver curriculum in bioinformatics and genomics across the University, and together with the National Genome Medicine MSc programme   sponsored by HEE, NHS and Genome England, to develop online coursework with international visibility in Genome Medicine and Clinical Bioinformatics.
We are one of nine national centres providing co-ordinated training in Genome Medicine. The Master's in Genomic Medicine has been developed to provide a multi-disciplinary and multi-professional course in genomics that can be applied to clinical practice and medical research. Development of independently funded research is encouraged and there are also funded opportunities to oversee MSc students in association with the GeCIP s that drive post-sequencing analyses of the subjects in the UK 100 000 Genomes Project.

  10. It is highly unlikely, though, that modern medicine is going to save humanity from self-destruction. The side-effects of drugs and treatments are breeding so many different diseases and causing so many deaths every minute of the day that it is virtually impossible to even remotely win the battle against disease as long as people believe they depend on any form of medicine.last longer
