About the team/job
The EMBL-EBI Sequence Families Team, led by Rob Finn, is responsible for a number of world-leading protein family annotation resources, including Pfam and InterPro. Pfam is a database of protein families, represented by multiple sequence alignments and profile hidden Markov models (HMMs). InterPro is a resource that classifies protein sequences into families, and predicts the presence of functionally important domains and sites. It does this by incorporating protein signatures from 13 different specialist international member databases, including Pfam.
There is an opportunity for a bioinformatician/software developer to join the team to work on the integration of the TreeGrafter software within the InterPro production pipeline, as well as into InterProScan, a tool which facilitates predictions of features on novel protein sequences. You will be working on the UniRules Project.
Masters level or equivalent qualification/experience in computational, biological or related scientific discipline.
The ideal candidate would have worked within a professional environment for ideally two or more years, building and running analysis pipelines, and contributing to their development as part of a team effort.
The candidate will need to be able to work independently, as well as interact with the rest of the development team. Good communication skills and attention to detail are essential, as is the ability to work to deadlines.
The successful candidate will function as a bridge between InterPro staff and other project stakeholders, via regular meetings and videoconferencing. The primary direction for the pipeline development and data analysis will come from team leader and/or line manager. Other requirements may also come from other team members and the consortium. The postholder will also be required to interact with members of other teams at EMBL-EBI.
