The successful applicant will join the team and contribute to the generation and integration of data for release and the development of software pipelines to support this process. The applicant will also contribute to PomBase (http://www.pombase.org), a collaborative project specifically serving the fission yeast research community, which also uses the Ensembl infrastructure. The successful applicant will join a team of ~25 people working on Ensembl Genomes and other related projects, embedded within a wider grouping comprising over 70 staff working on genome annotation, mostly using the Ensembl platform.
The successful candidate will work as part of a team of web developers with responsibilities including:
- Contribution to Ensembl Genomes data releases (data generation and integration)
- Development of software to support the release
- PomBase data releases
- Development of the PomBase web portal.
