  • Job: Bioinformatics Developer, Plant & Fungal Trees of Life Project (PAFTOL)

    Bioinformatics Developer, Plant & Fungal Trees of Life Project (PAFTOL), Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, London

    Kew is the world’s leading botanic gardens, at the forefront of plant and fungal science, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a major visitor attraction. We want a world where plants and fungi are understood, valued and conserved – because our lives depend on them. We use the power of our science and the rich diversity of our gardens and collections to provide knowledge, inspiration and understanding of why plants and fungi matter to everyone.

    The successful candidate will be an active member of PAFTOL’s multi-disciplinary team. The post holder, together with PAFTOL’s other bioinformatics staff, will be responsible for completion of the design and build of software systems and data analysis necessary to ensure the long-term operation of the PAFTOL project.

    You will be an excellent bioinformatician or software engineer with appropriate professional experience and a proven background in genomic data manipulation, ideally in a research environment. You will have a track record of helping to design and build robust bioinformatics pipelines, with good knowledge of distributed compute environments and workflow management systems. Experience of phylogenomics is desirable but not essential. You will be a proven team player, with the ability and appetite to help deliver project outputs, outreach, and to train and support researchers and students as required.

    The salary will be £34,933 - £37,865 per annum, depending on skills and experience

    We offer a fantastic range of benefits including a broad range of Learning and Development opportunities, with access to the Civil Service training curriculum, generous annual leave entitlement for new starters, family friendly policies, a choice of competitive pensions and flexible benefits scheme as well as free entry into a wide range of national museums and galleries.
