We are seeking to recruit an experienced Bioinformatician. You will join the Genome Analytics team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located at the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
The world of molecular biology is getting ready for a revolution, brought in by the development of new sequencing based assays to determine the 3D structure of chromatin. Thanks to these measurements, researchers are studying the complex mechanisms by which a constant genome sequence controls dynamic gene expression in each cell type. It is a recent field, but already extremely large datasets are being produced.
EMBL-EBI is one of the world’s largest public repositories of biological scientific data, providing resources for scientists to share and re-examine their experimental data. We are therefore setting up infrastructure, in collaboration with the Multiscale Genomics (MuG) consortium to capture this wealth of cutting-edge data.
The primary role of this position is to process and store this molecular interaction data. Typical tasks of the role will comprise:
- Developing software pipelines to process the data efficiently and reliably, in collaboration with domain experts;
- Developing storage solutions to store the results of these analyses;
- Developing web services to provide these results to the outside world;
- Reporting to collaborators on phone calls and meetings.
