About us

The Earlham Institute is a hub of life science research, training, and innovation focused on understanding the natural world through the lens of genomics.

Embracing the full breadth of life on Earth, our scientists specialise in developing and testing the latest tools and approaches needed to decode living systems and make predictions about biology.

The Earlham Institute is based within the Norwich Research Park and is one of eight institutes that receive strategic funding from UKRI Biotechnology and Biological Science Research Council (BBSRC), as well as support from other research funders.

Our Vision

We are building a future where the biology of any organism can be understood by analysing its genome.

Our Mission

The Earlham Institute’s mission is to unravel the scale and complexity of living systems so we can understand, benefit from, and protect life on Earth.

Bringing together multi-disciplinary expertise in the life sciences with engineering, computational science, and biotechnology, we are:

  • Answering fundamental and important biological questions
  • Pioneering the development of new technology and enabling resources
  • Using our unique skills, knowledge, and infrastructure to address global challenges
  • Training the next generation of scientists and upskilling the community
  • Collaborating with academia and industry to realise the impact of our science
  • Engaging with policy makers, the public, and stakeholders about our science


It takes a team to make the next breakthrough, and we're looking for the best and brightest minds to join us in tackling some of the biggest challenges in life science.
