    We are seeking a bioinformatician or computer scientist with a keen interest in biology to join the Informatics team supporting the Decipering Development Disorders (DDD) project at the Sanger Institute. You must be able to demonstrate strong programming / software development skills with an aptitude for developing analytical tools and pipelines. The successful candidate will enjoy working in multi-disciplinary team environment and will be able to develop production quality software from a minimal specification, in collaboration with the existing team members.

    The aim of DDD is to advance clinical genetic practice for children with developmental disorders by the systematic application of the latest high throughput sequencing and microarray methods, including exome sequencing and array CGH.

    The successful candidate will work closely with established lead developers and analysts in the team so previous experience with sequencing / genomic data is not strictly necessary, however the ability to quickly develop an understanding of what is a complex domain is essential. This position would be an excellent opportunity for a computer scientist wishing to move into bioinformatics research.
