Biodiversity Informatician (Fixed Term)

Applications are invited for a Biodiversity Informatician (at the level of a post-doctoral research associate) to work on Bioinformatic Pipelines for Botanic Garden Living Collections, coded in 'R', and supervised by the Curator and Assistant Curator.

Documented living collections of plants, distinguish botanic gardens from other horticultural landscapes, public green spaces, and botanical institutions. To this end we have been designing, writing, and implementing a bioinformatic pipeline in 'R' which is capable of comprehensively analysing and visualising the dynamics of individual Living Collections with high quality graphical display. The goal of the pipeline and project is to provide all botanic gardens with freely accessible tools through an online portal, to understand the management of their own living collections, to analyse the performance of collections management, and to communicate value, strength, weakness, and opportunity to key stakeholders.

We now are looking for a skilled bioinformatician and programmer to help take this project to completion and launch.
