EMBL's European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) is seeking a Senior Programme Manager to lead strategic initiatives and projects to support the effective long-term management and delivery of the EMBL-EBI data services portfolio.
These services make a variety of data openly available to support life sciences research, and are accessed millions of times each day. Many of the resources are delivered in partnership with international collaborators and operate under diverse funding and governance models. The resources play key roles in large international research projects, European data infrastructures, and within the EMBL 2022-2026 scientific programme.
On a technical level, the resources have deep interdependencies and are run by a staff of around 600 people, organised into teams and larger sections. This is a complex organisation that also has many outward facing responsibilities, for example, providing input and leadership in a variety of forums on matters relating to data management, data reuse, and open science.
As Senior Programme Manager you will have the opportunity to develop and deliver integrated programme plans and to support activities aligned with the EMBL-EBI services strategy. These activities will feed directly into future strategy development, which will be coordinated across the EMBL-EBI data resources.
A key part of this multifaceted role, you will utilise your strategic approach, building relationships and collaborating with internal/external stakeholders, including international funders, collaborators and other aligned organisations on a regular basis.
This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is motivated by delivering open infrastructure in support of life sciences research in an organisation with a public service mission.
Reporting to the EMBL-EBI Associate Directors for Services, your responsibilities will include:
