Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) invites applications for a Computational Science Developer I in the laboratory of Dr. Doreen Ware. The Ware Lab is located at the main campus of CSHL and focuses on genome organization and evolution in plants and building extensive software infrastructure to enable both research activity and community access. We work in a collaborative environment made up of enthusiastic scientists and software engineers, engaged in large-scale, open-science, systems biology projects such as Gramene and KBase, as well as more focused, experimentally validated research studies. The lab is funded by grants from a number of sources, including the National Science Foundation, the US Department of Energy, and the US Department of Agriculture.
We are seeking a computer programmer to work on projects such as the ones listed above and other lab processes and activities. You will become an integral member of a multi-disciplinary team that drives the vision of the projects to success. You will collaborate with internal and external partners on several initiatives, from architecting data flows to implementing cool visualizations. Your job duties will include building web-based scientific applications and dynamic interfaces for public project portals using a cutting-edge technology stack. You will participate in the design, development, and maintenance of web and server applications that integrate data from public APIs, a variety of database systems, and large data sets.
You will demonstrate the design and product of your work in internal meetings and at academic conferences in the US and abroad. You will contribute to technical discussions and actively participate in code reviews and peer mentoring. As a candidate for this position, you are technically flexible and comfortable with rapid prototyping and frequent interaction with individuals at varying levels of technical expertise. You have excellent communication skills and can translate scientific challenges into practical software solutions.
