We are seeking a software manager to lead application development for sequence
databases at the EBI. Our protein and DNA sequence database activities have
recently been merged, generating exciting challenges in data and software
integration. A significant Unix-based hardware environment will be available,
as well as the human resources of some 20 software engineers and database
administrators. This is a key role at the heart of public molecular biology
Qualifications and Experience: The successful candidate will have a solid
background in software and database development, especially C++, Java, perl
and Oracle in a Unix environment. Demonstrable ability to manage teams of
software engineers is crucial, as is a practical and interactive approach to
implementation of bioinformatics solutions. Knowledge and/or keen interest
in bioinformatics and modern molecular biology will be advantageous.
The European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), part of the European Molecular
Biology Laboratory (EMBL), provides cutting-edge research, service and training
in the field of Bioinformatics. The EBI is located on the Wellcome Trust Genome
Campus at Hinxton, near Cambridge, UK, next to Europe's largest genome
