We are seeking to recruit an experienced technical expert to work as an e-Infrastructure Integration Specialist. You will join the Technical Services Team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
We are looking for someone who will work to identify collaborative opportunities around how EMBL-EBI stores, process and manages ‘big data’ for the life-sciences with European e-Infrastructure service providers.
Reporting to Steven Newhouse, Head of the Technical Services cluster and leader of the Technology Science Integration group which is responsible for exploring how new technology and services can benefit the science activities undertaken at EMBL-EBI, you will be involved in:
- Gathering technical requirements from researchers and service providers within the life-science community at EMBL-EBI and within the ELIXIR Research Infrastructure for e-Infrastructure services;
- Working with the staff within the Technical Services teams at EMBL-EBI and staff across the European e-infrastructure initiatives (i.e. EUDAT, EGI, GEANT, Helix Nebula, PRACE, etc.) to integrate e-Infrastructure services with those at EMBL-EBI and other ELIXIR nodes;
- Deploying and integrating e-Infrastructure services with existing activities to provide researchers and service providers at EMBL-EBI and its collaborators with new capabilities that further their research work;
- Contributing to the strategic development of the Technical Services cluster by identifying the role that European e-Infrastructure services can play at EMBL-EBI and to influence the relevant European e-Infrastructure roadmaps as required.
You will be expected to work within the recently funded European e-Infrastructure projects EUDAT 2020 and EGI-Engage, and work closely with internal and external service providers, consumers of these services, technical and managerial staff to ensure the deployment and integration of e-Infrastructure services to meet the defined requirements.
