This role will be dedicated to one of our newly launched strategic initiatives: Epiverse Distributed Pandemic Tools Program. Epiverse aims to develop a coherent, open-source ecosystem of outbreak analytics tools using the R software. This project, formed as a partnership between data.org, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and the MRC Unit-Gambia, will also involve many key stakeholders beyond these institutions, including research institutes, national and international public health agencies, and non-governmental organizations.
The Senior Research Software Engineer (RSE) will be implementing solutions to maximize interoperability and consistency across the different packages of Epiverse, and will report directly to the Software Design and Implementation Lead. In close collaboration with other RSE teams of Epiverse, the post holder will develop dedicated object classes to represent common outbreak data as well as procedures for handling, visualizing, and converting them, and tools for data pipeline automation. The senior RSE will also help define and implement good practices for the packages of Epiverse, including coding standards, documentation, unit testing and associated coverage diagnostics, continuous integration and Agile collaboration frameworks.
