The Stanford Department of Genetics is looking for an outstanding bioinformatics software developer to join the bioinformatics group responsible for development of infrastructure to aid large scale analysis of sequence data. Successful candidate will be adept at established and newly emerging analysis techniques. The individual must be able to quickly grasp the objectives of research projects, and assemble solutions from a range of technologies, standards and approaches.
Your primary responsibilities will be to:
• Evaluate commercial and public bioinformatics software. Integrate existing software and develop new tools to build automated analysis pipelines, using a combination of scripting languages and high-level languages.
• Take software developed by Stanford researchers and create production oriented versions of these software. Practice strong coding principles to deliver production oriented software. Responsibility includes converting user requirements into design, implementation, testing, maintaining, documenting and distributing these software packages.
• Add to usability and ease of user experience by creating QA metrics, graphics and visualization. Help researchers with training, running analysis and troubleshoot.
• Maintain expertise in analysis of sequence data using a variety of bioinformatics software tools on our HPC cluster and Amazon AWS.
You must be self-motivated, independent and flexible with good communication skills. You will have the chance to participate in cutting-edge science in a dynamic, small-team environment.
