University of Oxford Programmer Position

IDDO Senior Java Software Engineer - Emerging Epidemics and Drug Resistance

Applications to be received by 12pm on Friday 4th of August 2017 Grade 8: £39,324 - £46,924 p.a.

This is an excellent opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer to join the Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO) team. The IDDO hosts a collection of data-sharing platforms, bringing together clinical, pharmacology, molecular, in vitro and medicine quality data for a range of infectious diseases. The new platform is building upon the success of the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN). The Senior Software Engineer will be responsible for developing many of the programme’s key software systems. They should have extensive experience in web application development and Java programming and have an interest in scientific applications of computing. The post holder will be involved in all stages of the software development lifecycle, from requirements analysis, design and implementation, through to testing and maintenance. We are looking for someone who has a bachelor’s degree in a related discipline such as computer science or equivalent experience, excellent Java programming skills as well as the ability to programme in several different programming languages. They should be highly competent in web application programming and have experience of relational database design (in particular SQL). Experience with Google Web Toolkit (GWT), R and relational data access technology and object-relational mapping would be highly desired.

Whilst the role is a Grade 8 position, we would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 7 (£31,076 - £38,183 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.

This post is available on a full-time basis, fixed-term for 1 year in the first instance. Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 4 August 2017 will be considered.
