As a Bioinformatician in this team you will have the opportunity to run our large-scale annotation system producing high quality gene annotation, while collaborating with both internal and external teams to advance the field of genome annotation. Our team has domain area expertise in software development, large-scale compute, big data, pipeline workflows and automation. We collaborate with consortia and communities from all over the world to annotate new genomes. Current and future projects for the team include: scaling up gene annotation pipelines; containerising these pipelines and deploying them to the cloud; implementing machine learning techniques to improve gene structure annotation; working with long-read (PacBio IsoSeq Nanopore) transcriptomic data with a view to extending existing annotations and identify new splice variants. The Ensembl project works at the cutting edge of gene structure annotation, primarily in vertebrate genomes, but increasingly in genomes of more diverse eukaryotic organisms. We design code and pipelines to annotate genomes with genes and other genomic features in diverse species. One of our primary goals is to create scalable pipelines and processes that can be used to accurately annotate genomes for all 70,000 known species of eukaryotic organisms in Britain and Ireland.

The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organizations in the world. The newest EMBL site in Barcelona, with its focus on tissue biology and disease modelling, is established in the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB), one of the largest infrastructures in Southern Europe dedicated to translational research. Biological and biomedical research has moved rapidly towards adopting 3D cultures, which requires design and fabrication of novel engineered platforms. To bridge engineering, biology and biomedicine, we are building a Makerspace Workshop to facilitate creative design and development of engineered tools. In collaboration with the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and Pompeu Fabra Univirsity (UPF), this workshop will be housed in the PRBB and will allow access to all employees across institutes within the park. This space will be useful for fostering novel collaborations between institutes and will allow for creative exchange of ideas. The workshop will also be host to in-house demos and/or outreach activities related to fabrication. Thus, we are looking for a Technical Specialist who can fulfil a dual role. One major role (50% time dedication) is to manage the workshop – assist with basic training of all users, scheduling, stocking and overall maintenance of the space. In addition, the (50% time dedication) Technical Specialist will work as a consultant on the establishment of new tools (help with design, fabrication and/or troubleshooting) for EMBL projects, as well as potentially run demos and outreach activities on the basis of need.

Ensembl is a leading genome informatics resource, one of the most highly used by scientists across the world. We seek a talented, highly motivated bioinformatician to contribute to our variation and phenotype resources.In the Ensembl Variation team, we integrate and annotate large quantities of variation and phenotype association data from public archives and develop tools for data access, visualisation and variant interpretation. The Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP), which leverages a wide range of Ensembl data to create detailed variant annotations, is our most popular product. Improvements in sequencing technology and the development of novel techniques are generating new data types and ever larger datasets. These data need efficient management and intuitive presentation in order for their full scientific potential, including improving our understanding of genetic disease, evolution and population genetics, to be reached. We collaborate with clinical research scientists, genomics researchers and standard setting authorities to define our services.

We have the job for you! The Furlong lab is looking for a scientific officer that has great hands and loves to work in a highly collaborative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge environment. The position involves contributing to different projects in the group and also, potentially, leading your own project. Extensive experience with Drosophila genetics and confocal microscopy and excellent molecular biology expertise are essential. The work involves Drosophila genetics, CRISPR/Cas9 genetic engineering, imaging, subcloning. The person should be able to work independently, be highly motivated and very well-organized. The Furlong lab dissects fundamental principles of genome regulation, and how it drives cell fate decisions during development, focusing on how the genome is organised and utilised during embryogenesis. As our main model system is Drosophila, the successful candidate should have extensive expertise with Drosophila genetics and imaging, to describe and quantify embryonic phenotypes.
