UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH
College of Science and Engineering
School of Biological Sciences
Lecturer in Computational Biology
We seek an excellent scientist and inspiring teacher who uses and develops computational and modelling techniques to address key questions in biology. We welcome applications from researchers in all areas of computational biology, and we are particularly looking for those working in the following fields: metabolism, such as the application of flux balance analysis and the analysis and interpretation of data from metabolomics and fluxomics experiments; multi-scale modelling of biological systems, including formal modelling techniques and stochastic modelling; and data science approaches to biological research, including the analysis of data from next generation sequencing.
You will have the ability, enthusiasm and breadth of vision required to be a future leader in this rapidly moving field. You will pursue an independent research programme and will be expected to work collaboratively and lead a team. You must have an established track record of relevant publications and the potential to win future investment in research, and will be expected to engage with both commercial and public research users and funders. You will be enthusiastic about teaching and student-centred learning for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
The University of Edinburgh is a vibrant, research-driven community offering opportunities to work with internationally leading academics whose visions are shaping tomorrow’s world. The Schools of Informatics and Biological Sciences are both world leading in research, providing an innovative environment for research and teaching with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research. SynthSys, the Centre for Synthetic and Systems Biology, is one of the largest groupings of systems and synthetic biologists in the UK with expertise ranging from microbes to mammalian cells, as well as strong links to computational work in machine learning and formal modelling. You will join a team of group leaders working at the interface between molecular cell biology and quantitative science.
The University of Edinburgh aims to ensure equality of opportunity. Both Schools hold Athena Swan Silver awards. We welcome applications from everyone irrespective of gender or ethnic group. As women and members of ethnic minorities are currently under-represented in posts at this level we particularly encourage applications from members of these groups. Applications for part-time or full-time working will be considered and we have a range of policies to support flexible working.
This post is full time and open ended.
