You will have experience and enthusiasm for developing and delivering training in computational biology/data science methods and keeping up with the latest advances in these areas (e.g. machine learning, cloud computing). You will be proficient in software development in Python, following software engineering best practices.

At the MRC WIMM Centre for Computational Biology (CCB), we work alongside scientists and clinicians to realise the potential of ‘big data’ in biology by exploiting complex information to make discoveries that benefit human health. The CCB encompasses an international team of over 50 computational biologists, working closely with 500 lab-based scientists and clinicians.

The position is available fixed-term for 3 years, funded by a Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (ISSF) Award and the OBDS Training Programme.
