EMBL Australia looking for three young bioinformatics leaders - closing date 28 February 2013
EMBL Australia is looking for three Group Leaders in Biomedical Informatics, to be based at their new node at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).
Each Group Leader position provides generous funding for five years with the option to extend it for another four years. The positions will be funded by contributions from SAHMRI’s parent institutions: The University of Adelaide, The University of South Australia and Flinders University.
EMBL Australia supports young scientists, recruited from Australia and around the world, to concentrate on doing their best, riskiest and most original work.
It was created to maximise the benefits of Australia’s associate membership to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Europe’s flagship laboratory for basic research in molecular biology. The EMBL Australia Partner Laboratory is based on the EMBL model, with distributed, highly integrated research nodes focussing on complementary aspects of biological research.
The Scientist’s 2010 Life Sciences Salary Survey indicated that the only growth in salaries in 2010 was in the fields of bioinformatics, biophysics, biotechnology, and neurosciences. This was attributed to the increasing requirements for informatics components in large projects, the continued surge in high-throughput experiments and a corresponding demand for employees who can manage and interpret the data.
