Title: Bioinformatics Developer

Salary: £35 – £44,000 per annum dependent on experience

Contract: Permanent

Hours: 35 per week (standard Anthony Nolan working hours)

Location: Anthony Nolan Research Institute, Royal Free Hospital, London

We are looking for an individual to implement novel and innovative computing solutions to the bioinformatics issues we are looking to solve. The individual will work alongside the Bioinformatics Scientists in developing and implementing computing solutions to the biological analysis developed by the team. A knowledge of biology is not essential, as this role will focus on the computing answers rather than the biological questions.

The individual would be expected to lead research and development into the computing aspects of the pipeline and develop project plans and methods for the implementation of new features.

The role will also include working with other team members to ensure good practice in software development, and in particular ensuring all team members are familiar with and actively using appropriate tools to manage code and project tasks.

A familiarity with agile software development practices would be beneficial.

The individual will ideally have a Computer Science BSc (or equivalent), and be competent with multiple programming languages (preferably Python, Shell Scripting) and tools (including NextFlow and MongoDb) and a basic understanding of Cloud Computing.

Experience of migrating software and applications to Docker and working with Google Cloud Platform would be advantageous.

We are aiming for the team to be on site at the Research Institute 3 days a week – we could consider further flexibility depending on current projects, but this position would not be suitable for fully remote working.
