The National Archives are looking for a Head of Digital and Technology Research position in Richmond, Surrey.

The National Archives has set itself the ambition of becoming a digital archive by instinct and design. The digital strategy takes this forward through the notion of a disruptive archive which positively reimagines established archival practice, and develops new ways of solving core digital challenges. In relation to digital preservation of the public record, our challenges are not only about capturing and storing complex data, digital objects and systems, but also about making these accessible and exploitable.

The Department of Parasitology is seeking a Software Engineer to investigate the impact of drug and insecticide resistance on Malaria Control and elimination programmes using the Open Malaria simulation package. As considerable resources are being invested in this direction, optimal use of these resources can be guided by appropriate computer simulations. We use modern computational power to simulate the entire process of malaria transmission and its impact on human health, burden on local health services, and cost-effectiveness of proposed control interventions using the OpenMalaria simulation platform developed over the last 12 years at the Swiss Tropical and Public Institute in Basel. The Research Software Engineer will be running the Openmalaria simulations and collating the output data in meaningful formats. These data will form part of reports and publications and hence, it is important that the simulation output data are well documented. The jobholder will also update the code as and when new factors are identified during the research. The role entails providing support for other simulation runs in collaboration with our colleagues at Swiss TPH which may require periodic, short visits to Basle  (<1 week duration).

The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for research in tropical diseases.  Through the creation of effective links with governments, organisations and institutions and by responding to the health needs of communities, LSTM aims to promote improved health, particularly for people of the less developed/resource poorest countries in the tropics and sub-tropics.

To be successful in this role, it is…
