We are always happy to hear from enthusiastic people interested in using ‘big data’ approaches to address biological questions. Whether your primary background is biological or numerical (statistical, computational, physical, etc.) we look forward to hearing from you.

At the moment we are mainly a ‘dry’ (computational) lab, but we closely collaborate with experimental groups at Babraham’s Nuclear Dynamics Programme and there will be opportunities to get your hands wet. A few positions we offer are jointly affiliated with an experimental lab from the outset.


All funded postdoc positions are advertised on the Babraham jobs page and jobs websites such as Jobs.ac.uk and Naturejobs. Positions are also posted on our newsfeed, so watch this space!

Alternatively, if you would like to apply for a personal fellowship to join our group, please get in touch to discuss possible projects and funding routes.

PhD students

Babraham Institute is part of a 4-year BBSRC PhD programme at Cambridge University. This means that if you are enrolled in the programme, you can opt to do your 1st year rotation project with us and then potentially choose us as the host lab for the remainder of your PhD. If you bank on this, please check with us to make sure that we will be offering a project in the coming year. Please also visit the Babraham studentships page for details on eligibility, application procedure and deadlines.

We also sometimes offer separately funded PhD projects, which will be advertised on FindAPhD and our newsfeed below.

Interns and summer students

Please contact us if you would like to do a project with us. Several funding options for summer students may be available, deadlines for which are usually in January-February each year, so this will require a bit of planning.
