Associate Research Fellow, University of Exeter, UK


The College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter wishes to
recruit an Associate Research Fellow to investigate ant-colony optimisation techniques in 
bioinformatics. The successful applicant will implement ant colony optimisation techniques and 
investigate their potential to explore interactions in genome-wide association studies on a variety
of case-control disease datasets.

Applicants should possess (or shortly obtain) a relevant PhD and will be able to write programs 
in a modern programming language such as Python,C++, C# or Java in addition to experience of working
with nature-inspired optimisation algorithms (e.g. evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimisation,
particle swarm optimisation).Additional experience in bioinformatics and specifically, genome-wide 
association studies would be an advantage.

Full details of the post are available here:
