Diamond Light Source is one of the world’s most advanced scientific facilities. We’re home to the UK’s synchrotron light source – a giant microscope producing beams of light 10 billion times brighter than the sun. Probing the structure and composition of matter, our work drives innovation in everything from vaccines to nanotech.
Scientific Software, Controls and Computation (SSCC) software and computing systems support activities that extend from when a “Diamond user” applies to the User Office for beam time, through to pre-experiment planning, on to the life cycle of conducting the experiment and to post-experimental analysis. It extends from the control of the instruments, managing the experiment and the data analysis through to the deposition of the resulting data and metadata into the data archive and catalogue. It supports the transfer of data to the home institute and the capturing of publication information. It is critical to the running of Diamond as a world leading Research Institution.
About the Role
We have an opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer Team Leader to lead a team developing software and databases to manage the ISPyB/SynchWeb applications and APIs that provide experimental information management systems for instruments at Diamond. ISPyB provides a back-end data model and service to collect metadata, with SynchWeb providing the main web-based user interface. The services support shipping of samples, visualisation of processing pipelines and facility wide statistics.
The role will develop the services to meet the need of the science community at Diamond and further afield and contribute to the ISPyB collaboration that develops the system, as well as contributing to the development of software across the whole of SSCC.
The candidate we are looking for will be committed to the development of excellent software services, focussed on the needs of scientists. This is an ideal role for someone with experience of technical development either with line management experience or with an enthusiasm to develop these skills. You should understand what is required to deliver the whole service ensuring resilience and responsiveness in the services that are provided.
We are looking for:
