The Centre for Human Genetics, part of the Nuffield Department of Medicine, is looking for a Data Manager to support a newly funded project, known as IMMPROVE (Immune Memory and Mechanisms of Protection from Vaccines).

IMMPROVE will build upon the insights generated during the pandemic to develop improved mechanistic understandings of the induction, and maintenance of the immune responses underpinning broad protective memory responses, with a focus on mucosal immunity.

You will be working closely with the IMMPROVE researchers across the consortium, to be responsible for the flow of sample information, multi-modal datasets and their metadata within the IMMPROVE Data Platform, acting as the point of contact for all matters related to data management. You will be responsible for developing and using novel methodologies for storing these information and datasets along with their metadata in an unambiguous manner which supports hypothesis generation. You will identify and troubleshoot technical or scientific problems, working collaboratively with the IMMPROVE team to overcome issues. In addition, you will have responsibility for keeping detailed and comprehensible records of your work, preparing accurate reports that communicate approaches clearly and effectively to a range of stakeholders, and ensuring that IMMPROVE management and senior users are kept up to date with project progress and any difficulties encountered.

It is essential that you hold a Master's degree in Bioinformatics, Biochemistry or other related computational subject. You will have experience in managing large and diverse data types in a biomedical space and proficiency in coding in either Python or R and other scripting languages. It is essential you have excellent analytical and quantitative skills with a proven ability to solve problems and think critically about scientific processes so as to generate robust, reproducible approaches. Additionally, you will be able to drive projects to completion, working independently, and organising and prioritising work to deliver accurate results to the required standard and to an agreed schedule.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.

This position is offered full time on a fixed term contract for 36 months in the first instance and is funded by the MRC.

Only applications received before 12 midday on 15 May 2024 will be considered. Please quote 172265 on all correspondence.
