Software Developer (C++) , University of Oxford

We are looking for a C++ Programmer to join our LIMS Development Team. As part of a small, friendly group, you will be writing software for the NDPH Wolfson Laboratories, collaborating with end-users to develop applications with the satisfaction of seeing your work in daily use.
You should have a computing-related degree or equivalent programming experience and demonstrate you have successfully delivered applications to meet users' requirements. Proficiency in C++ or a related language is essential, as is a good knowledge of SQL and strong communication skills.
Based within the Nuffield Department of Population Health, the Wolfson Laboratories employ over 40 staff providing services for large-scale randomised clinical trials and observational studies. Our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) was developed in-house using C++ and Visual Basic, integrating storage, retrieval and analysis of large numbers of samples.
The system is under constant development to integrate new technology and respond to new requirements. Practical knowledge of laboratory work would be an advantage but training will be provided.
This position is full-time (although part-time considered, at least 70% FTE) and fixed-term for 2 years, in the first instance. Informal enquiries should be addressed to Nicholas Goodwin (nicholas.goodwin@ndph.ox.ac.uk).
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 5 May 2016. The selection process will include practical tests and an interview the week beginning 16 May 2016.
