CBER Programmer

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 6. The salary range will be £26,447 - £28,621 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

We are currently seeking a CBER Programmer to work for the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research (CBER). The Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research (CBER) is an interdisciplinary centre that aims to develop, undertake and communicate new research at the interface between biodiversity and environmental change.

CBER is housed within the Department of Genetics, Evolution and Environment (GEE), which brings together scientists with shared interests in evolutionary, population and environmental biology, genetics, systems biology, theoretical biology and human genetics. CBER also brings together UCL researchers from a range of departments in the Life, Earth, Physical, Social, Computational & Mathematical Sciences, and collaborates with other London institutions, including the Zoological Society of London and Natural History Museum, as well as with colleagues from around the world.

This post is funded for 1 year in the first instance.

The successful candidate should hold a degree in computer science, biology or a related discipline or equivalent experience. The person should have extensive experience with programming languages, databases, high performance/clustered computing and web applications. Specifically, skills in database design and management (such as MySQL), scripting languages (e.g. Python, Java), statistical computing in R, and spatial analysis in GIS are highly desirable. Biological knowledge providing the context for data handling and analysis will be gained on the job during discussion with CBER members and is not essential.
