Work with us

Support to larger projects is available via EFT (part salary) contribution, while small, well defined, projects are charged via a fee-for-service model. The MBP has a fixed pricing structure for the most common analysis services. For custom or larger-scale analyses, this is an engagement that is more akin hiring a postdoc for a short term and will need a plan and quotation after understanding the requirements and priorities of the project.

We have various arrangements for engaging with research projects on short or long term basis, such as:

  • You can drop-in at our weekly Friday help session for free consultation on experimental design and preliminary data analysis. You can RSVP here.
  • We can embed a bioinformatician in your lab.
  • We can provide hot desks for students or postdocs to work alongside the bioinformatics team.
  • Need bioinformatics support for your next grant application? Submit a request here

HOW CAN WE HELP?

Our team has a wide range of experience in bioinformatics analysis. While we can analyse data for you, our model is to help facilitate you in planning your experiments and analysing your own data. With this in mind, we can offer advice at any stage in the research cycle (grant writing, experimental design, data analysis and publication). We also provide hands-on training for digital data-handling skill development.

We also facilitate access to high performance and cloud computing and act as a hub for investigators with similar research directions who may help you on your research journey.

We are actively building a community around bioinformatics practitioners and offer forums for asking questions and sharing experiences and research works in progress.

We work closely with the sequencing facilities at Monash campuses, including Micromon and MHTP, to provide you with a comprehensive sequencing experiment design solution.  We are always happy to assist you to find the most suitable sequencing platform for your experiment.
