Currently the team are looking for a talented Python Developer who will be responsible for developing and maintaining software systems for the quality control, processing and interpretation of genetic data. This role would suit a Software Developer with strong Python skills from a commercial background who has an interest in getting involved in Genomics and Bioinformatics. No previous Genomics and Bioinformatics experience is needed, simply an interest in Genetics Research!
Your main responsibilities as a Python Developer will involve:
-Developing and operating computational pipelines, working on complex projects and custom tasks that span a wide variety of analysis problems
-Developing and applying state-of-the-art approaches to 100,000 whole genome sequencing in the areas of QA, WGS analysis in cancer and rare diseases, sequence alignment/variant calling
-Assisting with deploying, maintaining and troubleshooting computational pipelines for WGS processing and analysis
-Liaising with internal colleagues as needed to ensure provision and smooth running of computational pipelines for data processing and analysis
The ideal Software Developer should meet the following requirements:

Genomics England works with key partners to collect, transport, store, quality check and sequence the samples from participants. The aim for this project is to create a new genomic medicine service for the NHS – transforming the way people are cared for. Patients may be offered a diagnosis where there wasn’t one before. In time, there is the potential of new and more effective treatments. You will be working as part of a team of 4 people, and will contribute to the largest national Genome sequencing effort of its kind.
