We are looking for a dynamic leader in computational biology to join EMBL-EBI as Head of Research. EMBL-EBI is one of the world’s leading bioinformatics institutes with around 600 staff with a focus on both computational biology research and bioinformatics service delivery. Research at EMBL-EBI comprises 8-10 dedicated research groups along with 4 further teams who combine research activities and service delivery. As Head of Research you will provide leadership for the entire EBI research portfolio - similar to a Head of Department in a University setting but without teaching and with minimal administration commitments. You will also run your own research group.
This is an exciting opportunity for a successful scientist with high calibre leadership skills to provide strategic direction for EMBL-EBI’s research and have substantial influence in the broader European computational biology research area.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an impressive record in delivering world class research in computational biology, and have the ability to inspire the next generation of bioinformatics researchers. Communicating and collaborating with the research community, internal and external, will be a key aspect of this role.
EMBL-EBI is committed to achieving gender balance in its leadership and strongly encourages applications from women, who are currently under-represented at all levels. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
We welcome informal enquiries to Ewan Birney, Joint Director of EMBL-EBI ([email protected]), or Nick Goldman, Research Group Leader ([email protected]). More information is available at www.ebi.ac.uk/research/research-group-leaders-at-embl-ebi.
