The University of Birmingham has committed to create world-leading bioinformatics capacity and expertise with the creation of three prestigious bioinformatics chair-level positions.
The Bioinformatics Chairs are supported by a dedicated and creative team of bioinformatics research fellows, IT and administrative support staff. The CCB team works closely, drawing from their individual strengths and areas of interest to create a well-rounded knowledge base. The CCB team collaborates with University and external researchers, supporting them in their work. The CCB team has built strong links with bioinformaticians and related academics across the University, forming a network of working relationships, and building the CCB Community.
The CCB is a dynamic centre; with new opportunities at all levels. We are currently looking to fill roles directly supporting the Chairs, as well as in teaching, research, bioinformatics, and administration.
If you’re interested in bringing your expertise to the CCB team, please send us an email.
Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Birmingham Centre
The Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Birmingham Centre will be funded from 1st April 2017 for 5 years alongside the Birmingham Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre (ECMC). Its explicit aim is to catalyse translationally aligned fundamental discovery science in oncology and novel therapeutic developments originating from this research, contributing to CRUK’s strategic target of increasing cancer survival rates from 50% to 75% within the next 10 years. The CRUK Birmingham Centre will focus on increasing understanding of oncogenesis and tumour immunobiology, providing the scientific basis for novel targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and stratification approaches. CRUK Birmingham Centre funding (~£4. 5M over 5 years) will build strategically on a total of ~ £25M of local funding per year in the cancer field.
