Job opportunities in the Centre

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.
