We are recruiting for an exceptional individual to join us as a computational scientist, bioinformatician, or (research) software engineer with an interest in interactive data analysis platforms for biology and medicine within our Jalview (www.jalview.org) research software engineering team.
Jalview development is about world-class research software engineering, user interface design, high-performance data analysis and communicating best practice in the interactive visual exploration of biological data. We have a growing list of contributors, including students and interns who developed bioinformatics research projects based on Jalview, or just wanted experience in open source scientific software development. If you aren’t already working in computational biology/bioinformatics, then this is a great opportunity to gain knowledge of key resources in this fast-moving field.
Jalview development is managed in Prof. Geoff Barton’s bioinformatics research group at the University of Dundee (www.compbio.dundee.ac.uk) with support from the Wellcome Trust and BBSRC. The team occupies purpose-built space for computational research in the Discovery Centre, the latest development to the School of Life Sciences research complex. We support both flexible and remote working arrangements, and the University has a generous holiday entitlement.
