We've got some great jobs advertised at Ensembl:

Ensembl developer:

We're looking for a bioinformatician to join our genebuild team, working on creating and running pipelines for the annotation of genes onto genomes from publicly available protein and mRNA data. We're looking for MScs and PhDs in CS, bioinformatics, genetics or a related subject, with ability to write and understand complex code and experience working with genome annotation and large biological datasets.

Closes 6th August 2017

Data visualisation designer:

We're looking for a designer to develop Ensembl's web displays for visualisation of complex biological data, working with Ensembl users for a user experience focused output. We're looking for people with experience in web design and/or data visualisation, with biological knowledge a plus.

Closes 13th August 2017

Ensembl web back-end developer

We're looking for a web developer work on developing infrastructure for expanding numbers of genomes. We're looking for Masters, or similar in bioinformatics, computer science or a related subject with experience in deploying websites in a production environment.

Closes 13th August 2017

I've only put short summaries here, so please click through to the adverts to see the full information, including the link to apply. I'm not directly involved in recruitment, but can answer some general questions. As I've mentioned here before, I think Ensembl is a fantastic place to work and I strongly encourage anyone to apply.

We're at the EBI in Hinxton, near Cambridge. Jobs are open to any nationality, and EMBL's visa exempt status means we can get anyone over here. I know people are worried about jobs in the UK due to Brexit, here is a document explaining our status post-Brexit - essentially, EMBL isn't EU so Brexit won't change the UK's status in EMBL and our visa exempt status means it doesn't affect anyone's ability to live and work here. Also, Ensembl is mostly Wellcome funded, which is not linked to the EU.

There are many other jobs advertised at the EBI, including post-docs, bioinformaticians, training officers, curators etc. It's always worth looking there for any bioinformatics-related jobs.

Visa exempt status is awesome! I didn't even know that was a thing...

EMBL, CERN and ESA have it, plus someone else (I want to say something environmental).

Is it possible to work from home or remote? Intention is not for money, but only for experience and education purpose. I have just completed Master in Bioinformatics, and interested to work in real project and learn.

Hi! I'm also is interested in remote position. Do you at Ensembl consider those?

We do not usually encourage remote working.

If you're looking to get experience, things like Google Summer of Code are worth looking into (now closed for this year so you'd be looking at 2018).

I have done my Master this year, so I am not eligible for GSoC-2018. Your suggestions are welcome if is there any other way to get some work for experience.

Thanks.

This one is new, I didn't miss it:

Bioinformatician: We're looking for a bioinformatician to join our Regulation team working on incorporating publicly available epigenomic databases (like ENCODE) into our regulatory build pipeline, which predicts the position and activity of regulatory features (such as promoters and enhancers) in different cell times, creating and refining pipelines for further epigenomic data types and making said data available via APIs. We're looking for MScs or PhDs in molecular biology, bioinformatics, computer science, statistics or similar with experience in epigenomics a plus, and experience in developing scientific software, Unix and object oriented Perl. Closes 20th August.
