A Software Development Project Leader is sought to join the Functional Genomics Development Team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. We are looking for a Project Leader with experience in working on and maintaining large software systems, for the development of the EMBL-EBI BioStudy database; this is a new data resource that will serve as a generic data archive at EMBL-EBI for biomolecular datasets, as well as for maintenance of the current generation of tools. The post-holder will play a key role in the specification, design, implementation and maintenance of software components for the BioStudies database as an extension of the existing Gene Expression database, ArrayExpress, with a particular emphasis on data submission tools and data access interfaces. The Project Leader will also ensure that the existing production level database infrastructure is functional. The work will be performed jointly with software engineers, data curators and bioinformaticians. The post holder will also be required to design and implement efficient data integration procedures with other resources at EMBL-EBI and beyond; this work will involve liaison with the teams maintaining these resources. Contribution to EMBL-EBI activities in aligning various aspects of resource development will be expected. The Project Leader will be able to deliver and maintain reliable and robust software components. (S)He will coordinate a small team of 2-3 developers, and will have an active role in setting software development directions for the team. EMBL-EBI is part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and is located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK. We are a world-leading bioinformatics centre providing biological data to the scientific community with expertise in data storage, analysis and representation. We provide a dynamic, international working environment and have close ties with both the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. EMBL-EBI staff enjoy many benefits including excellent sports facilities, a free shuttle bus to Cambridge and other nearby centres, an active sports and social club and an attractive working environment set in 55 acres of parkland.
