- Design and develop high-quality, maintainable software to meet project needs and deadlines (including the interpretation of project requirements and technical specification documents across multiple domains)
- Providing application support to a range of science/laboratory/enterprise related applications (across different platforms and technology stacks)
- Help establish the feasibility of technical proposals by developing prototypes and experimenting with new technology
- Assist with creating and supporting a productive and efficient standardised development work-flow (including versioning, automated deployment, automated testing, defect management and environment set-up and controls, as appropriate for each project)
- Seek continuous improvement to products and services, and new ways of collaborating with peers and colleagues inside and outside the Crick
- Produce, update or otherwise maintain documentation for projects, and where needed present project walkthroughs/overviews back to the team and other collaborators.
- Assist with workload planning by providing estimates
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
