We are looking for a talented and driven individual to join our team to help support the use of cancer data by scientists involved in cancer research. We are experts in finding and joining up complex healthcare data and we use this to gain insight and an understanding of how care is delivered. This role focuses on data manipulation and developing software tools to help present and visualise information in an accessible and stimulating way to patients and a range of customers within the NHS, local government, charities and industry.

Projects currently underway include the National Cancer Diagnosis Audit (NCDA) portal and the BRCA Challenge Project. The NCDA investigates the diagnostic pathways for cancer patients. The BRCA Challenge is establishing a national hereditary cancer register using genetic testing data from molecular laboratories.

You will need to be proficient in web development and object-oriented programming. A strong knowledge of computer security is essential. System administration experience would be an advantage.
