Dave Clements kindly suggested that I post this to the list. 

My team is looking for someone to help out with the ever increasing need
of data analysis in our centre. We support the diverse bioinformatics
needs of 18 groups (http://www.wcb.ed.ac.uk) and currently there are
many large NGS projects.  We use galaxy as a central component for rapid
tool development and to enable users in their own research.

Dave (cleme...@galaxyproject.org) has also kindly offered to provide
impartial advice about Edinburgh for those who may not know of the joys
of living here.

It is a fixed term contract for 30 months (which should allow plenty
time to impress groups leaders for more funding).
