Scientific Portal Developer

West-Life is a €4M European project to develop application level services specific to uses cases in structural biology. The European structural biology community is large and diverse, and is contributing significantly to our growing understanding of healthy and diseased organisms, and to improvements in healthcare. The West-Life project aims to facilitate more ambitious and interdisciplinary research by providing advanced tools. These tools will make use of the growing European e-infrastructure.

This role will underpin Work Package 6 of West-Life which will build on existing infrastructure (e.g. WeNMR for storing and accessing data, to produce an application layer for data management suitable for the growing use of multiple techniques and multiple experimental facilities in structural biology research projects. As instruments improve and experimental methods diversify, structural projects are increasingly handling large numbers of datasets, which can be geographically distributed. This work package will support scientists in tracking, using, sharing, and discovering such datasets, and will provide services to the portal being developed in another work package.

The role is a technical architect role. The post holder will work within the Computational Biology Group of the Scientific Computing Department. The group works on a variety of software projects in structural biology, as well as other areas of bioinformatics and computational biology. The wider department has been at the centre of the developing e-infrastructure for the UK and Europe.
