Faculty positions in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology at the new Francis Crick Institute in London

Faculty positions for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Francis Crick Institute group leaders at the CRUK London Research Institute

An outstanding opportunity for computational research using approaches such as bioinformatics, genomics, systems biology, mathematical modelling, image analysis.

The Francis Crick Institute http://www.crick.ac.uk
The Francis Crick Institute will open at St Pancras in central London in 2015. Its research will use interdisciplinary approaches to investigate the biology of human health and disease, supported by core funding from CRUK, the MRC, and the Wellcome Trust, and by grants from UK and international funding agencies.

The Crick is expanding Computational Biology research as a key component of its scientific strategy. The institute will offer an outstanding environment for computational research, with excellent opportunities for wet/dry collaborations across the range of biomedical and clinical research disciplines, supported by a strategic alliance with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. The new Crick laboratories will feature excellent computational facilities including a state-of-the-art data centre.

The London Research Institute http://www.london-research-institute.org.uk The London Research Institute (LRI) is the largest Cancer Research UK research institute, with 40 research groups focusing on fundamental cancer biology. The Institute is based in well-equipped laboratories at Lincoln’s Inn Fields in central London, and at Clare Hall in Hertfordshire.

About Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
