In this role, you will also support public engagement activities on behalf of the Centre and liaise with other bioinformaticians at partner organisations as required.

*Excellent programming skills in languages such as Perl, C/C++, R, Python
*Proven background developing novel bioinformatics tools and algorithms for analysis of genetic data
*Experience implementing, improving and maintaining bioinformatics pipelines
*Familiarity with a range of sequencing methods (Illumina, Oxford Nanopore)
*Experience supervising other scientists and working as part of a team
*Excellent communication skills are essential

The position is fixed-term for three years in the first instance with the possibility of extension. There is a generous range of benefits on offer including pension, 30 days holiday, discounted rates at a sports facility and childcare support services.
