Today the University of Nottingham launches the Advanced Data Analysis Centre – ADAC. This represents an investment of £492,000 of University funding over a five year period. ADAC will support University of Nottingham’s research and discovery by assisting in research grant applications and by analysis of large and complex data sets. The centre will employ seven data analysts over a 5 year period who will be based in the Vet School in the Sutton Bonington Campus and in the School of Computer Science in the Jubilee Campus. ADAC has three directors: Richard Emes, who is Director of Bioinformatics; Jon Garibaldi, who is director of Informatics; and myself.
We are currently recruiting the first post – a research officer in advanced data analysis and database systems – to be based in Computer Science. Two bioinformatics vacancies to be based in the Vet School will be advertised shortly.
