    Opportunity: Lead Developer in Genebank Genomics @ Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew -- London, UK
    Submitted by Paul Kersey; posted on Friday, June 04, 2021

    BACKGROUND

    We are seeking to recruit a Lead Developer, with expertise in bioinformatics, to lead RBG Kew's contribution to the AGENT project (agent-project.eu). Kew maintains the Millennium Seed Bank, the world's most biodiverse seed bank, and in AGENT we are partnering with about 20 of Europe's leading crop seed banks to develop an open digital infrastructure for the management of plant genetic resources. AGENT aims to unlock the full potential of the biological material stored in seed banks around the globe by using DNA sequencing technologies in conjunction with FAIR international data standards.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    The post holder will be responsible for Kew's contribution to AGENT project, including (i) development of novel software for data validation, storage, distribution and visualisation (ii) testing and integration of established software packages (iii) data analysis. The successful applicant will work on constructing robust, scalable and portable pipelines for the validation, analysis and visualisation of these data.

    REQUIREMENTS

    The successful candidate will have an M.Sc. or higher degree in biological or computational sciences, and be able to demonstrate expertise in bioinformatics, software engineering, and application development. They will be expert in at least one modern computing programming language (Python, Perl, Java, etc.), be familiar with database management systems, and be able to demonstrate their ability to learn new technologies as appropriate. They will be able to work independently and to collaborate routinely with partners working at different institutions, and be able to communicate well with other scientists, in meetings and in external scientific presentations. Relevent experience includes working with next generation sequencing data; use and development of data standards; software containerization; and development of web-based applications. Genomics-based approaches are increasingly being undertaken in a range of contexts across Kew, and it's an exciting time to join us as we seek to catalogue and understand the diversity of plant and fungal life.
