Technical Innovator – Bioinformatics
I have a great opportunity available to work with one of the leading organisations within bioinformatics in the UK as a Technical Innovator, joining the IT team in a visionary role. This unique, exciting and forward-thinking position will be at the cutting-edge of technology, defining the future of the hardware and software pathways to shape the organisation.
The organisation has one of the world’s largest life science IT facilities, providing research groups with HPC clusters that deliver more than 20,000 compute cores, 15 PB of high performance Lustre file systems and data repositories exceeding 16PB.
This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to complement the existing IT team. This exciting role is to look 5+ years ahead to what may be possible, rather than technology that is available today. You will evaluate how it aligns with the organisation’s developing scientific challenges and how to further engage with their strategic commercial and scientific IT partners to develop the solutions that will be need in the future.
The core accountabilities of this role include:
*Define new and emerging technological requirements and map how they can propel our hardware and software forward
*Produce a 5 year + roadmap
*Develop and track metrics for benchmarking the quality of technologies
*Defining technological requirements and specifications based on perception and user feedback
*Evaluating how emerging and new initiatives will align with our scientist challenges
*Communicate findings clearly and effectively in a number of ways to technical and non-technical audiences
For such a blue-sky research position, you should possess a mixture of talents and qualifications, and will be able to demonstrate:
*A strong and creative problem-solving mentality.
*An open and enquiring approach to IT, its challenges and how to overcome them.
*Highly self-motivated and with a will to share and disseminate information
*An ability to present new ideas and opportunities to a wider audience of both highly technical and non-technical audiences
*Provide contributions to wider audiences through peer review papers and conference presentations and posters.
*The proven ability to rapidly learn and evaluate new methods and tools
*Excellent written, verbal and numerical skills.
*Forward and independent thinking
This post would be ideally suited to someone with a high degree in a computation or mathematic or scientific background. Specific knowledge of cloud or HPC technologies is desirable but a deep understanding and the implementation of today’s IT technologies, such as machine learning and computation approaches is more important.
There are some great benefits available with this position including the opportunity to work at the forefront of Genomics research with some of the smartest minds in the world. There’s also a competitive salary and package available, private health insurance, on-site gym/tennis courts/ cricket pitches and nursery.
