Web Developer 2 (Phytozome Plant Genomics Portal) - 81593
Organization: JG-Joint Genome Institute
Berkeley Lab is Bringing Science Solutions to the World, and YOU can be a part of it!
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with "excellence." That's why we hire the best - whether in research, finance or other operations. This is a great opportunity to bring your top-notch skills to bear in support of world-class scientific research that addresses national and global challenges!
Berkeley Lab’s Joint Genome Institute (JGI) has an immediate opening for a Web Developer for the Phytozome Plant Genomics Portal. Our team of bioinformaticians, biologists and software engineers turn multi terabytes of raw genome sequences into biologically informative reference datasets and analyses, in support of cutting edge, publicly accessible research worldwide in biofuels, plant evolution and plant adaptation to climate change. As Phytozome’s main UI developer, you will make major contributions to the ongoing design and development of a robust, elegant and scalable analysis and visualization platform that enables JGI’s scientific collaborators and plant scientists around the world to access, explore, and analyze plant genomic data.
The Phytozome team collaborates with several local as well as international teams in the areas of plant genome structural and functional annotation, genomic data modelling, and web based genomic tool development. Our team members have many opportunities to contribute to these collaborations.
What You Will Do:
• Work as part of the team that develops and supports the Phytozome Portal
• Continuously debug, improve and extend the Phytozome Portal to accommodate more diverse and ever larger genomic data sets, ensuring our users can produce the best science possible with our tools
• Develop advanced data visualization components to enable users to probe and comprehend multidimensional genomic data sets
• Employ solid SW Engineering practices: design and code reviews, source control and versioning, issue tracking, unit testing, iterative development, effort estimation
• Present on Phytozome alone or collaboratively at workshops, conferences, and scientific journals
