Hurry up: only 3 days left for your application

We have two exciting opportunities to work in Open Targets in a startup-like environment, using a wide range of modern technologies, to continuously improve the Open Targets Platform, a genome-wide resource for target identification and validity. We work following Agile practices and you will be encouraged to take ownership of what you work on.

As a web developer, you will contribute to the development of the web frontend for the Open Targets Platform. You will:

  • Design, develop and improving a robust, testable web application to facilitate target validation;
  • Work with other developers in the team to ensure consistency in the web application;
  • Work with scientists and UX professionals to ensure a positive user experience and an integrated display of information;
  • Develop, integrate and maintain reusable data visualisation components for data display.

As a python software developer, you will be involved in running large-scale biological data analysis and integration, and developing the REST API, which powers the Open Targets Platform. You will:

  • Design and implement the backend micro-services and data processing pipelines in Python on Unix-based systems,
  • Maintain those services in a cloud environment (Google Cloud or AWS),

Salary and benefits

These are fixed term positions of 3 years, with monthly salaries starting at £2,552 (after tax). Monthly allowances and other benefits for EMBL-EBI staff are also available.

Closing date

February 18th, 2018 but why would you wait till the deadline?

Apply now for either the software developer or web developer positions.

The EMBL-EBI is based on the Wellcome Genome Campus, set in the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside. Excellent sports facilities including a gym, a free shuttle bus, an on-site nursery, cafés and restaurant, and a library are available for all campus members of staff.
