Applications are invited for an Analyst/Programmer in MAPto join Associate Professor Peter Gething’s group located at the Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research.

You will be joining a small team building a new application suite from the ground up.  The application will support global research into malaria and other diseases. The role will be varied. Project tasks will include design, implementation and testing work across the stack; from database designs to Angular JavaScript code and accompanying Jasmine tests. The project work will also involve data ETL (using FME), with the aim of transforming data from various sources to fit into a canonical model and load it into the new application’s data store. You will also entail the support of existing and future production systems with bug fixes and enhancements.

You will have a degree in a computing or IT related subject or able to offer the equivalent in terms of professional training and experience.  You should have demonstrable experience of application development and relational database design, whether obtained within project, support or academic environments, as well as an understanding of the importance of team coding standards and technical documentation.  While experience with some of the technologies mentioned above (particularly JavaScript) would be beneficial, candidates whose experience is in other object-oriented or functional languages (such as Java or Python) will be considered. Aptitude, attitude and flexibility are the most important criteria.

This position is fixed-term for one year in the first instance and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
