Permanent/ Open Contract
We are looking for a Senior Web Developer to join our Informatics team (https://www.sanger.ac.uk/science/groups/cellular-genetics-informatics). We are part of the Cellular Genetics programme which uses state of the art experimentation and computational tools to understand the biology of cells. Our team develops infrastructure for efficient data storage, access and analysis that support the programme's research goals.
In this role you will develop and maintain infrastructure and visualization code for the Cellular Genetics programme's web portal. The portal will be the main interface between the researchers and the data and will enable them to view their data, execute analysis pipelines and visualise the results in the most convenient way. You will work on implementation of the UI components, on usability studies and on data transmission between the back end and the front end. You will also develop web interfaces for specific research projects. Your role will be very collaborative and include a lot of interaction with both research scientists and the software team.
You will have access to Sanger's elite computational resources, including an OpenStack private cloud, an LSF computational cluster and many petabytes of high-speed distributed file systems and object stores.
We support recent graduates or current students in their final year to apply, although it is strongly desirable that you have relevant development experience outside of coursework (e.g. active participation in open source projects or the pursuit of personal coding projects).
