Goldman Group - Job/Training Opportunities
BackgroundIn common with many other bioinformatics groups, the members of the Goldman group at the EBI come from a variety of scientific backgrounds. To let you know a little about the range of skills which can lead to successful work in bioinformatics, the bottom of this page includes brief CVs of current group members.
First degree in Mathematics; brief job in statistics consultancy followed by PhD and post-doctoral research (MRC-NIMR, Mill Hill, London and University of Cambridge) in molecular phylogenetics; research group leader at EBI in molecular phylogenetics and bioinformatics since 2002.
First degree in Biology, PhD in Computer Science, both at ETH Zurich; in between, half-year stints at Northwestern University (Evanston, USA), Tsinghua University (Beijing, China), and at Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok, Thailand). Interested all along in the forces that shape genes, genomes, and species, using computational and statistical methods.
First degree in Biochemistry; Master's degree in Computational Biology; currently doing PhD research on phylogenetic inference from multi-locus data. Interested in the effect of mixed gene histories on species tree reconstruction.
First degree in Biochemistry; held an undergraduate lab position working on pseudogene identification and analysis; interested in combining new data and the latest methods to help understand the mutational and selective forces shaping eukaryotic noncoding DNA.
First degree in Mathematics; now a software engineer with background in process control and air traffic control. Implementing base calling algorithms for next-generation sequencing.
First degree in Mathematics; (Postgraduate) Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics, specialising in statistics, followed by PhD in the statistical modelling of protein sequence evolution; post-doctoral research in using evolutionary methods to analyse the effects of natural selection on biological sequences.
First degree in Mathematics; MPhil in Computational Biology with masters thesis in statistical genetics; interested in statistical modelling of sequence evolution and theoretical phylogenetics.
First degree in Biology, thesis on insect molecular phylogentics; Master's degree in Cell Biology and Molecular Biotechnology; PhD in molecular evolution; interested in novel computational methods for short-read sequencing and statistical phylogenetics.
