MGnify and MG-RAST are the world-leading platforms offering free-to-use analysis services for the characterisation of metagenomics sequences. The Metagenomics Exchange is a collaboration between these platforms and the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA), aiming to promote data exchange, discovery and cross talk between the resources and their analysis pipelines. Metagenomics analysis is challenging in terms of scale, diversity of data and the different approaches used to analyse them. This project aims at enabling data exchange via the MGnify and Metagenomics Exchange programmatic interfaces.
The ideal candidate will have a postgraduate degree in computer science, bioinformatics or a related discipline, although candidates with equivalent experience will also be considered.
