We are looking for a highly motivated, experienced Software Engineer to work in the Functional Genomics Development Team at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) which is located on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
This is an exciting opportunity to work on the development of the BioStudies database, a new data resource at EMBL-EBI that will serve as a generic data archive at EMBL-EBI for Biomolecular datasets. In particular, the post-holder will work on problems associated with transfer and management of larger volumes of data, for example, generated by high resolution imaging technologies. They will work on both the backend aspects of the data management infrastructure associated with the end user-facing software components, as well as integration with existing data management systems. The engineer will work in a team with other software engineers, data curators and bioinformaticians, and will deliver and maintain reliable and robust software components.
The post holder will report to the Functional Genomics Development team leader, and will work closely with the project coordinator for biological image data resource development. Some European travel may be necessary.
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 academic and industry. We are part of EMBL, Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences.
