We are seeking to recruit an experienced Bioinformatician/Ontologist to work on the eNanoMapper EU project. This project is building a computational infrastructure for toxicological data management of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) based on open standards, ontologies and an interoperable design to enable a more effective, integrated approach to European research in nanotechnology. You will join the Cheminformatics & Metabolism team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located at the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
Our group is leading work package 2 of this project, which is developing an ontology for the full domain of nanosafety research, based on existing ontologies and using the standard Semantic Web ontology language OWL. You will work with the eNanoMapper partners on ontology software development and editing, addressing the requirements outlined by the consortium.
