We are seeking to recruit an experienced Bioinformatician to lead the day-to-day bioinformatics activities within the PhenoMeNal H2020 project, which is to create an e-infrastructure for large-scale computing with medical metabolomics data. You will join the Cheminformatics team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located at the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
You will lead the further development, scaling and integration of existing bioinformatics solutions into a European e-infrastructure for analysing medical metabolomics data. This will lead into the development of virtual machine images (VMIs) to sustain various levels of data storage, pre-processing, integration, analysis, and visualisation. The use of VMIs will enable a flexible architecture that can run on local systems within participating and collaborating organisations, and maintain a high level of data security/integrity. Tools, services and associated software included in the different VMI’s will be developed and integrated. The project will integrate well established stand-alone bioinformatics tools and a significant amount of research is necessary to investigate the requirements for interoperability of those tools in a coherent practically useful processing pipeline.
