Fixed Term Contract for 2 Years

The Sanger Institute has started the Darwin Tree of Life project to provide high-quality genome assemblies for all life in the British Isles. This project will significantly contribute to the global Earth Biogenome Project, fundamentally changing scientific knowledge of evolution and interactions among millions of the planet’s organisms.

Within the Darwin Tree of Life Project, our team makes sense of the gigantic amount of data that is being produced by generating genome assemblies, assessing their concordance with difference data types and changing them accordingly, thereby improving both assembly quality and assembly strategy. We are seeking to recruit a Senior Computer Biologist to join our genome curators and help us in this undertaking, specifically in the assessment of genome assemblies using bespoke software tools and correcting assembly errors.

You will have sound knowledge of genomics, ideally with insight into genome assembly visualisation and genome analysis software, engage with current genomics research and are enthusiastic about trying out new approaches. You do not need programming skills, but a keen eye for detail and a thorough understanding of genomic data to make the right decisions. You will work closely with our software developers to report on your insights from assessing assemblies to help improve software and processes.

This role requires an investigative and solution-oriented mind set and excellent communication skills to work effectively within large national and international consortia. 

Essential Skills 

  • Degree in a biological or computational topic or adequate experience.
  • Demonstrable knowledge of genomics.
  • Some familiarity with a Unix environment.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills combined with being proactive and self-motivated.

Job description

Full-time, Permanent

Closing date: 15th July 2019

What you'll do:

As a member of the CAM Engine team, your role will be a combination of software development, research and implementation. The organization you'll be part of is responsible for implementing the core functionalities of our automatic CAM software, from the algorithms that are automatically generating the machining instruction to server-side services that make these functionalities available, from the data structure used to represent the 3D objects to running experiments with our manufacturing experts in our factory, on commercial CNC machines.

Some of the specific challenges you can expect to work on:

- Feature detection in 3D models

- Machining strategy automatic planning

- Machining optimisation

- Physical simulations

- Algorithm optimisation

Our team is heterogeneous; you will work on areas best suited to your skills and interests; however, you will also have the chance to contribute to other areas across engineering. As a team, we work on the challenge of automating the machining process, but this is just one aspect of a much larger goal; to drastically increase productivity through automatisation within manufacturing. CloudNC is not here to make what is there better - we're here to change the status quo!

What is your background:

- Have commercial experience working in C++ (11 or more recent)

- Well versed in principles of Computer Science

What would be useful to know:

- Knowledge of vector and 3D maths

- Intuition for solving 3D geometric-style problems

- Experience working in CUDA and OpenGL

- Experience in / having published papers on:

Computational Geometry

Mathematical Morphology

Computer Vision Computer

Graphics Signal Processing

Robotics / Kinematics

Finite Element Analysis

CAD / CAM

CloudNC's Software Engineering Culture:

We are changing an industry through research and science. We are not a start-up that is doing something better or improving on what exists in the market; we are working in an area that doesn't have a solution yet at all! We work in small collaborative working groups, and within these groups, we are free to organise our work. The range or our activities can go from studying academic papers to test our innovation in our manufacturing plan equipped with the best CNC machines. Curiosity is a big part of CloudNC; with such an open-ended problem to solve the answers don't present themselves, we need to search for them!

  • Has strong experience managing a range of production applications in a distributed and highly available cloud services environment (AWS preferable)
  • Has experience with containerization (Docker) and high level container orchestration systems (e.g. ECS/Kubernetes/Swarm)
  • Has experience with automation and configuration management tools (e.g. Ansible, Terraform, and Puppet)
  • Has a deep understanding of Linux operating system and administration skills, and shell-scripting skills
  • Has a deep understanding of server/network security concepts and implementations
  • Has created and worked with microservice infrastructures
  • Ideally has some programming knowledge, preferably Python, Node.js, Javascript, or Go
  • Ideally has some experience deploying solutions to enterprise clients

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT HERE:

  • You’ll work alongside amazing, high-performing colleagues
  • We offer a competitive salary (range dependent on experience, from entry to lead) and equity options with every role
  • Everyone gets 25 days of paid annual leave (33 days including bank holidays)
  • Fantastic tech start-up environment, using best practices and cutting edge technologies
