Biomolecular Interaction Centre
Welcome to the Biomolecular Interaction Centre
The Biomolecular Interaction Centre (BIC) was established at the University of Canterbury in 2007. BIC recently received a multi-million dollar investment from the University of Canterbury to become one of two new premier research institutes on campus. The BIC objectives are to support and foster research in the area of biomolecular interactions.
PhD position in RNA bioinformatics (7 March 2013) There is an open PhD position to study bioinformatic approaches to characterising non-coding RNAs. A PhD stipend of up to $25,000 NZD including fees is available. Applications close 30 April.
Change in Leadership Team
Conan Fee has accepted a new role as Dean of Engineering and as such has stepped down as a Co-Director of BIC. Juliet remains a Director of BIC, and Emily Parker has chosen to be Deputy Director.
