Organization: EB-Environ Genomics & Systems Bio
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL, https://www.lbl.gov/)’s Environmental Genomics and Systems Biology Division (https://biosciences.lbl.gov/divisions/egsb/) has an opening for a Software Developer to join the team.
In this exciting role the Software Developer will help build applications and frameworks supporting a variety of high-profile bioinformatics projects. The Software Developer will contribute to a variety of critical NIH and DOE projects, including the Gene Ontology (GO), the Monarch Initiative, the National Microbiome Data Collaborative (NMDC), and the Center for Cancer Data Harmonization (CCDH).
As a Software Developer in our group, you will develop and maintain robust software for the creation, management, and utilization of ontologies and knowledge graphs for applications in systems biology, human health, and environmental microbiology. Working as part of a distributed team, you will develop systems for interacting with databases (primarily graph/RDF databases), supporting curation interfaces, and workflow systems for integrating data from a variety of heterogeneous sources. This position involves interacting with users (including a range of biomedical scientists and biocurators). This position will be hired at a level 2 or 3 contingent upon level of experience, skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.
• This is a full-time 2 year, term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
• This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs and the skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.
• This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
• This position will initially be remote, but limited to individuals residing in the United States tentatively until 2021 due to COVID-19. Once the Bay Area shelter-in-place restrictions are lifted, work will be primarily performed at West Berkeley Biocenter (Potter St.) — Bldg. 977, 717 Potter St., Berkeley, CA. Full remote work is also available.
