We have an excellent opportunity for a Partner Portal Development Lead for our MalariaGen project, part of the Parasites and Microbes Team at the Sanger Institute, one of the premier centre of genomic discovery and understanding in the world.
About the Project:
The team was recently awarded funding by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with the primary outcome of malaria control programs and policymakers using genetic data, integrated with epidemiological data, to make more informed decisions. To achieve this outcome we need to operationalise our leading malaria genomics research to create a set of open software products that underpin a surveillance service generating curated malaria genetic, epidemiological data in near real time.
Our work to date has prototyped all of the necessary tools to develop an initial set of pipelines and analysis tools that create both curated analysis ready genetic data and curated analysis ready epidemiology data. However, to enable operation at scale, these tools need to be re-engineered to professional commercial software standards.
