Research products database developer - Contract position

Employer: Jomar Life Research

Closing date: 30 Sept

Brief position description: Our company is a distributor of reagents and kits for biological research. Our catalog consists of hundreds of thousands of individual products. To assist our customers in identifying relevant products of interest, we are seeking to substantially improve our current product catalog and search tool. We wish to engage a contractor with strong coding and database management skills as well as familiarity with biological nomenclature to construct the architecture behind this search function. 

A suitable candidate should have very strong skills in Excel, including VBA coding, Microsoft access and database management. Additionally, it would be highly desirable if the candidate has experience with ecommerce platforms, ideally Magento. Lastly, understanding of biology and good familiarity with biological nomenclature is essential. Therefore it would be suitable to someone with a background in bioinformatics. 

We envision this position as initially being on a fixed-term contract basis, but possibly progressing to an on-going part-time role. This position may suit a current graduate student seeking to supplement their income. 

An attractive compensation will be offered for a suitable candidate.

If interested, please email a cover letter describing your relevant experience and CV to Alex Szabo at the address provided.
