The Research Informatics team at the Centre for Medicines Discovery (CMD) provides data management and informatics capabilities to major biomedical and drug discovery projects, including within large multinational consortia and with pharmaceutical companies worldwide. We develop and support novel approaches to managing multimodal data from early discovery research through to translational and experimental medicine and play a leading role in defining policy and strategy in effective data management and sharing approaches. For example, the team have recently built and maintained an end-to-end data management solution for the UK Government/Office for National Statistics’ (ONS) COVID-19 Surveillance programme, supporting data flows from sample collection through to daily delivery to ONS. This plays a critical role in the UK Government’s COVID-19 strategy.
To support our work, we are seeking to appoint a Research Software Engineer to develop novel technical solutions for data collection, integration and sharing, ensuring that they are available to the team and our customers, to facilitate excellent end-to-end research data lifecycles. We are particularly focussed on providing ready-to-run, containerised, platforms suitable for use in a cloud infrastructure.
The successful candidate will be embedded, with our team, within a unique multidisciplinary environment, working with scientists and world-leading researchers both within Oxford and around the world, focussing on global health challenges, providing opportunities to really make an impact in the development of new medicines.
An appointment at a lower grade may also be considered for a less experienced candidate (with a Bachelor’s degree minimum requirement and suitable adjustment of responsibilities)
