The Institute for Systems Biology is seeking Software Engineers to join the lab of Dr. Shmulevich. Cancer research has entered the realm of Big Data. Large research studies are generating more data every day -- petabytes of data describing thousands of tumor samples. Our goal is to enable cancer research groups around the world to develop and test their algorithms on this data using a secure, distributed cloud platform. We are part of a pilot project to provide the cancer research community with flexible, programmatic, and interactive access to large heterogeneous datasets, the tools to analyze them, and the computational power to develop and test novel algorithms.
ISB is a unique organization positioned at the intersection of biology and technology, and is leading a team of a dozen or more research scientists and software engineers spanning three organizations to develop the Cancer Genomics Cloud. ISB is a nonprofit biomedical research organization where some of the world’s best scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians collaborate to drive scientific advancement and create breakthroughs in the areas of human health and environmental sustainability.
Come be a part of this fast-paced and exciting project. Join our team and help us solve grand challenges in cancer research. Bring your expertise in distributed systems, cloud technologies, data pipelines, algorithm development, and visualization wizardry to bear on an important facet of human health.
We are looking for candidates for several positions, including Lead Software Engineer/Architect, Distributed Storage and Database Engineer, Distributed Computation Engineer, Interactive Analysis Web Developer, Distributed Systems/Services Developer for Genomics, and Genomics Data Hacker.
