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 

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

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. 

Computational Biology in Cancer
An outstanding opportunity for computational research using approaches such as bioinformatics, genomics, systems biology, mathematical modelling, image analysis. The LRI recruitment process for 2013 will carried out jointly with the Crick Institute. We shall appoint outstanding scientists seeking to establish independent and innovative research programmes focussed on: 

Newly appointed group leaders will receive core funding for research personnel, travel and consumables, and access to the Institute's comprehensive computational core facilities, backed by competitive employment terms. The new group leaders will move to the Crick laboratories in 2015.

Application deadline: 22 November 2013
