The ISA and BioSharing team is hiring!

We are seeking to appoint a Software Developer based in the Life, Natural and Biomedical team within the Oxford e-Research Centre at the University of Oxford. In this varied, interesting and challenging role the successful candidate will provide technical knowledge, software engineering and leadership ability for (i) the ELIXIR UK node of the ELIXIR programme, and (ii) a growing portfolio of data and knowledge management projects.

The position requires a software engineer/research associate with both technical and social ability, and also experience and skills to manage more than one project, plan and monitor project deadlines, assist in writing reports and communicate with geographical distributed collaborators. The successful candidate will liaise with end users and collaborators (e.g. at the European Bioinformatics Institute, Stanford University, Manchester University, Imperial College), members of community-driven initiatives (e.g. working groups in the Research Data Alliance) and developers of data publication platforms journals (e.g. at Nature Publishing Group and BioMedCentral). The candidate will work closely with the team and contribute towards the enhancement of relevant components of the ISA software suite (see the ISA commons community) and of the BioSharing registry, embedded into a large number of UK, EU and NIH funded projects.

This post is fixed-term for 3 years.
