Full-Time Senior Full Stack Developer

EMBL-EBI – Posted by Clarence Saffron Walden, England, United Kingdom

Job Description

We are currently seeking a talented Senior Full Stack Developer/Data Engineer to join the Human Genomics Team at the EMBL European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI). The team provides genome variation and regulation resources as part of the Ensembl project, human variation interpretation services including the DECIPHER platform, and data portals for partners around the world. With underlying infrastructure for these services based on EMBL’s large and long-standing data resources – this is an opportunity to rise to the challenges of ‘big data’ and make contributions that advance the reach and utility of sequence data.

Your role

This is an exciting opportunity to make a significant contribution to development of a new open-source Perturbation Catalogue for harmonised and curated human gene (e.g. CRISPR), variant (e.g. MAVE), and expression (e.g. Perturb-seq) data. This project is funded through the Open Targets consortium, an innovative public-private partnership that uses human genetics and genomics data for systematic drug target identification and prioritisation. The new resource will help to address a fundamental need in the scientific and drug discovery community for a comprehensive resource to understand the impact of modifying genes and proteins.

You will be responsible for support and development of software to handle programmatic access and a portal interface to explore, combine, visualise and access a wealth of perturbation data. This will enable the extension and application of existing algorithms and the design of new computational methods for functional genetics and target identification and prioritisation, offering enhanced statistical power and the capability to work with disease subtypes at a finer granularity. The Perturbation Catalogue will deliver rich community standards, open-source harmonisation and meta-analysis software, gold standard machine learning ready datasets, and a highly customisable public cloud platform with distributed data warehousing technology for cross metadata queries.

You will interact closely with the team’s Biocurator for data coordination into the perturbation data portal, as well as with the wider Human Genomics team. You also will work collaboratively within the Open Targets Perturbation Catalogue project team, alongside scientists, developers and data engineers from EMBL-EBI, Wellcome Sanger Institute, Human Technopole, and industry partners (GSK, Pfizer, Genentech, Sanofi, MSD) to gain their respective expertise and requirements.

You have

  • A BSc or MSc in computer science or related fields.
  • Expertise in Python, including popular Python libraries: NumPy, Pandas, PySpark and frameworks: Django, Django Rest Framework, FastAPI
  • Hands-on experience with both relational (e.g. PostgreSQL) and non-relational databases (e.g. Elasticsearch, Redis).
  • Strong experience in data warehousing architecture, big data processing and ETL
  • Unix/Linux environments
  • GIT and working in collaborative software environments
  • Willingness to learn new skills as the project requires
  • Self-motivated and capable of working both independently and as part of a team
