Career opportunities

Much of the work of the Babraham Institute focuses on the BBSRC’s strategic objective of research into healthy ageing – understanding the basic molecular processes to promote lifelong health and wellbeing. Research into ageing is carried out across the Institute’s four programme areas: Epigenetics, Signalling, Lymphocyte Signalling & Development and Nuclear Dynamics, and these work in close collaboration with each other. The four programme areas are funded by the BBSRC as Institute Strategic Programme Grants (ISPG).
