MGnify is EMBL-EBI’s microbiome data analysis resource, which performs the archiving, assembly and analysis of metabarcoding, metagenomics and metatranscriptomics data. This resource is produced by the Microbiome Informatics Team, led by Rob Finn, and provides access to one of the largest collections of publicly available analysed microbiome data.
The successful post-holder will be responsible for maintaining the core production pipelines, integrating developments produced by the wider team, and ensuring that new features and data types are propagated into the MGnify data models. Where possible, they will identify areas for increased automation and areas where processes can be optimised to increase scalability. The postholder will be responsible for the develop of the execution framework for seamless deploying the MGnify workflows on a hybrid computing architecture (as described), ensuring their efficient and timely execution and the propagation of results in the MGnify data stores.
This project will also interface with other EMBL-EBI resources, particularly ENA, Ensembl, and BioSamples, and as such the postholder will be required to liaise with developers in those groups to ensure correct data syncing across resources. In collaboration with the rest of the team, the postholder will be expected to interact with users of MGnify, answering helpdesk questions and by developing training materials for virtual, online and in-person training. They will also be expected to present at team and collaborator meetings.
