Default Lead Developer in gene bank genomics @ Kew Gardens, London

We are seeking to recruit a Lead Developer, with expertise in bioinformatics, to join the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to lead our contribution to the AGENT project ( Kew maintains the Millennium Seed Bank, the world’s most biodiverse seed bank, and in AGENT we are partnering with 20 other European seed banks to develop an open digital infrastructure for the management of plant genetic resources. AGENT aims to unlock the full potential of the biological material stored in seed banks around the globe by using DNA sequencing technologies in conjunction with FAIR international data standards.

The post holder will be responsible for Kew’s contribution to AGENT project, including (i) development of novel software for data validation, storage, distribution and visualisation (ii) testing and integration of established software packages (iii) data analysis. The successful applicant will work on constructing robust, scalable and portable pipelines for the validation, analysis and visualisation of these data.

Relevent experience includes working with next generation sequencing data; use and development of data standards; software containerization; and development of web-based applications. Genomics-based approaches are increasingly being undertaken in a range of contexts across Kew, and it’s an exciting time to join us as we seek to catalogue and understand the diversity of plant and fungal life.
