The Babraham Institute is a charity which is world renowned for its research in life sciences
to enhance lives and improve wellbeing.
The Babraham Institute is developing an internationally competitive research focus in
computational biology. Following the recruitment of Nicolas Le Novère, the Institute is
looking for experts to establish research groups that complement and extend existing research
activities pursued in one or more of our research Programmes (Signalling, Lymphocyte,
Epigenetic Regulation, Nuclear Dynamics). The Institute’s current research may be viewed at
http://www.babraham.ac.uk/. The new groups will also build on the activity of the Babraham
bioinformatics team. We aim to make a strategic appointment for an individual with
bioinformatics and computational expertise to contribute to the research of the Nuclear
Dynamics Programme (informal enquiries to Peter Fraser: firstname.lastname@example.org), and
will also consider excellent candidates covering the following domains:
Genomics, epigenomics and nuclear genome organization
Computational biology of the ageing process
Statistical analysis of large-scale datasets, e.g. lipidomics, next generation
sequencing and imaging.
Informal enquiries about computational biology at the Babraham Institute may be directed to
