Melbourne Bioinformatics operates from offices at the Parkville Campus of The University of Melbourne and supports researchers who are recognising that life science, including biomedicine, is fast becoming a data science. Our experts assist with research design and grantapplications, advise on computing options, engage in deep research collaborations, develop bioinformatics algorithms and software, create and deliver both online and hands-on bioinformatics training, and run the MSc (Bioinformatics) course, as well as supervising PhD students.
Delivery of a strong, relevant and responsive training program is a key role of Melbourne Bioinformatics as we focus on working with and empowering life scientists from within The University of Melbourne and across the Parkville Precinct.
Melbourne Bioinformatics also collaborates on a range of national and international platform development and research infrastructure projects and hosts the EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR,www.embl-abr.org.au).
This position calls for an Academic Specialist who is not only able to deliver a progressive, academically rigorous and engaging Bioinformatics training program with Melbourne Bioinformatics, but someone whose ethos is to empower the next generation of leading life scientists within the University of Melbourne, the Parkville Precinct and at a national and international level for the betterment of the broader community.
