We are looking to recruit a software engineer to join the Expression Atlas development team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), which is located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
The increasing sophistication of biological analysis and representation requires increasingly complex yet intuitive user interface solutions which often demand novel technological approaches to implement them. Expression Atlas is a value added database servicing queries for gene expression patterns (e.g. genes over-expressed in a particular tissue or disease state) as well as broader exploratory searches for biologically interesting genes/samples.
The post-holder will be fully involved in developing, delivering into production environment and maintaining the Atlas software. You will also be required to evaluate and benchmark state-of-the-art candidate technologies, frameworks and patterns.
The post-holder will report to the Gene Expression Team Leader.
The EBI is part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and it is a world leading bioinformatics centre providing biological data to the scientific community with expertise in data storage, analysis and representation. EMBL-EBI provides freely available data from life science experiments, performs basic research in computational biology and offers an extensive user training programme, supporting researchers in academia and industry. We are part of EMBL, Europe's flagship laboratory for the life sciences.
