Are you a self-starter who loves working collaboratively, problem solving and making a difference to health data research and innovation? Do you get really excited by BIG data, innovative data engineering and the potential to deliver and catalyse new research into pragmatic solutions for better health outcomes? If so, you could be working with the Health Informatics Centre team (HIC - https://www.dundee.ac.uk/hic/) at the University of Dundee.
HIC are looking to recruit a Software Programmer for a new and interesting large, 18-month, health data project. The multi-disciplinary project team led by HIC will deliver a UK-wide health data analysis platform for rapid research, linkage and innovation. The outputs of the project will enable the delivery of insights from a comprehensive range of data partners and custodians including key support to government. The team will be looking to curate a standardised dataset accessed across a UK-wide platform for health data and associated datasets.
Your priorities will include:
- You will be expected to learn the domain information required to deliver the projects;
- You will produce system documentation in line with documentation standards and keep abreast of developments in the standards and modelling community for health information and knowledge;
- You may work with other organisations across the UK to support them to automate research on COVID-19 data and build a UK-wide infrastructure.
Who we’re looking for:
- experience of a range of programming languages and technologies;
- experience of software architecture;
- experience of the full life cycle of projects;
- A degree in a related discipline;
- A team player with the ability to work using own initiative, deliver outputs within agreed timeframes.
So if this exciting opportunity interests you and you have adaptable skills and experience that fit within the following role then do get in touch.
At the University we benefit from having access to a range of personal and professional development courses and training opportunities. We enjoy 34 or 39 * days annual leave per year, and are supported by a range of Work Life Balance policies, staff support networks for BME, Disabled and LGBT staff, membership of Athena SWAN, the ECU Race Charter and Stonewall as well as a full range of disability services which all create an enjoyable and inclusive place to work. It is the diversity of our staff and students that make the University of Dundee an enjoyable place to work.
