As part of the formation of the new Department of Life Sciences (through a merger between Biology & Biochemistry and Pharmacy & Pharmacology), we are aiming to strengthen big-data science.
We are now looking to recruit a Senior Lecturer or Reader in Bioinformatics to shape our research profile in the new Department, to work within the Milner Centre for Evolution.
About the role:
You will lead an independent cutting-edge original research program in the field of bioinformatics and have a strategic role in the development of innovative computational approaches and strengthening bioinformatic support within the Dept of Life Sciences. You will deliver high-quality teaching and will lead our postgraduate MSc (Bioinformatics) degree program and contribute to further undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.
You will have an established track record of outstanding achievement in bioinformatics evidenced by high impact publications and grant income and an internationally competitive research program that will contribute significantly to University, UK, and global priorities in pure and applied research. Preference will be given to applicants who can demonstrate the greatest potential for collaboration and innovation. You will be committed to developing your teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level and be able to teach coding, bioinformatics and statistics at both under- and postgraduate level.
The Milner Centre for Evolution opened in 2018 and builds on decades of excellent evolutionary research. It is recognised externally as one of the strengths of the University and will continue to play a pivotal role in the new Dept of Life Sciences. You will also have access to the ongoing Milner Centre for Evolution Doctoral Training Programme (DTP), which provides fully funded studentships for a four-year research and outreach programme leading to a PhD as well as other Doctoral Training Programmes funded via UKRI (BBSRC, MRC and NERC).
