We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, highly motivated Bioinformatician to work in the EGA and Archive Infrastructure Team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
The successful applicant will work with a focused team of developers, biologists and user support personnel to provide a world leading reference genetic variation resource as part of the European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) project. You will engage in both internal and external (national and international) collaborations, especially the RD-Connect consortium (www.rd-connect.eu) and will have the opportunity to gain expertise in biological ontologies, metadata and scientific data modelling primarily related to research into rare disease. RD-Connect is a platform for connecting databases, registries, biobanks and clinical bioinformatics for rare disease research. You will also work with software developers to implement scalable databases and Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) pipelines for the management, transfer and analysis of human genetic data.
