The Variation Team is looking to recruit a Project Manager with significant technical software and database development experience, to join their team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located on the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK to work on the European Variation Archive (EVA) project. The team develops tools to archive genetic variation and phenotype information from datasetsgenerated as part of scientific experiments. The genetic variation covers germline (or somatic) single nucleotide changes as well as large structural changes observed in any species. The Variation team also includes the European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) that stores petabyte scale genomic data from human biomedical research projects.
The post holder will be expected to provide daily task orientated project management and lead professional level software development practices in code review, systems analysis and modelling and documentation. (S)he will participate in strategic scientific planning and publication efforts, and be capable, as needed, to have direct involvement at the coding level in technical development tasks. This position will bridge scientific strategic direction in the domain of genetic variation with detailed technical implementation and task tracking to see that these goals are met through weekly milestones.
