It’s official, I’ve landed myself back overseas! As of August 29, 2014, I’ve begun a faculty position at the University of Birmingham, UK – I’ve joined the School of Biosciences with a stated research focus in “Environmental Genomics”. My appointment is part of the Birmingham Research Fellowships scheme, aimed at recruiting interdisciplinary early-career researchers to develop campus expertise within specific focus areas (in my case, bioinformatics).
I’m thrilled to begin this new chapter and start building my own research group. Watch this space – more exciting announcements are sure to come as I get myself up and running!
