We are recruiting a Principal Bioinformatician for Pathogen Informatics, a software development and bioinformatics support team in the Parasites and Microbes programme at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.
We are looking for a scientifically minded individual who is enthusiastic to lead our bioinformatics activities by developing the team’s bioinformatics portfolio and setting standards for NGS data processing in the team and the wider department. You have ample experience in the processing of NGS data and a solid informatics background. You are familiar with modern workflow management systems like NextFlow and are eager to lead the design and development of new pipelines. You enjoy working with people and guiding junior colleagues in their professional development. Most importantly, you are motivated to support the science and make a difference in the fight on infectious diseases to improve global health.
Pathogen Informatics embrace agile methods and promote open source software development. In close collaboration with the scientists in the programme, we develop workflows and platforms for the processing, tracking and sharing of large volumes of genomic data related to infectious diseases, such as malaria or pneumonia. We also support the scientists by developing and deploying software and services that advance their research, and provide direct informatics advice. As a dynamic team we share all elements of our work, so you would be involved in a variety of different projects, with a focus on leading the development of workflows for the processing of high-throughput genomic data and establishing closer connections with the scientific groups
