Software engineer (f/m/d) (Dipl./M.Sc./Ph.D.) in research data management

Reference No.: IT 2021/11

Do you want to make an impact? Do you want the chance to do something new? The Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration (HMC) is one of five incubator platforms that form the backbone of the Helmholtz digitalisation strategy. We work across the Helmholtz Association improving the capacity of researchers to engage with data infrastructure, and the capacity of data infrastructure to engage with researchers.

Hub Matter is one of six subject specific hubs in the HMC. Data in the hub comes from the disciplines of particle and astroparticle physics, and research in large scale facilities (synchrotrons, free electron lasers and other types of particle accelerator). You will work together with the rest of the hub team, the wider HMC, the research data managers of the HZB and those across the Helmholtz Association to develop tools and connect to infrastructures ensuring they meet the needs of researchers.

You need to enjoy working in a multidisciplinary team, listening to scientist’s needs, and delivering practical solutions that make an impact quickly.

We are looking for an experienced software engineer (f/m/d) who is able to design solutions to connect data infrastructure across the Helmholtz association, and who has an additional interest in software development specifically designing and programming web applications.
When successful you will have a direct impact on liberating the ground-breaking work of thousands of researchers across the Helmholtz association.
