We are always interested in identifying enthusiastic and motivated people to join our group at any level - from undergraduates to post-doctoral.

We welcome backgrounds in the life sciences, such as biology, biological engineering, pharmacy, etc. as well as in physics, computer science ("informatics"), mathematics and other numerate fields. For people coming from the life sciences, prior interest and experience in programming is an advantage. Conversely, a prior interest in biology is sought in those coming from numerate fields. If you are interested in our work, and not answering a specific call for applications, this means you will have to obtain independent funding.

You can e-mail us for informal enquiries regarding working here (
