Permanent / Open Contract

A revolution is underway in health informatics, with genetics increasingly important in understanding human health and disease. COSMIC (, a database of genetic mutations in cancer, is a major resource in cancer research, used by over 3000 scientists every day across the informatics, diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries. We are expanding rapidly and developing a range of new services to support multiple academic and industrial research efforts.

As a Senior Web Developer with COSMIC, you will be at the heart of our development efforts in this fast-moving discipline. Working closely with our scientists, bioinformaticians and web developers, you will play an important role in improving the ways in which we curate, analyse and display information. You will help to ensure that COSMIC remains a world-leading resource for scientists researching new approaches to understanding and treating cancer.

We are in the process of large-scale redevelopment of the COSMIC database, APIs, internal tooling, and external web app. This presents a unique opportunity for a talented full-stack developer to truly make their mark, working within the COSMIC web team, with developers and our UX lead, to build the new COSMIC platform.

While we are keen to find a developer with practical experience of modern JavaScript web apps, we recognise that many of the technologies we're using are only just reaching maturity. So, if you're passionate about using latest technologies but haven't got years of experience, we'd still love to hear from you.

We are open to a range of flexible working options including part-time or full-time employment as well as flexible hours.
