  • 12/01/15--00:45: Software Engineer
  • A central challenge in genomics and medicine is to organize, analyze, and disseminate information derived from datasets that can characterize the genetic basis of disease. The rapidly growing type 2 diabetes genetics knowledgebase aggregates and democratizes these data to the broad biological community. We are supported by consortia for genetics research (the National Institutes of Health funded T2D-GENES project, as well as the Carlos Slim Foundation funded SIGMA-T2D initiative) as well as by public-industry partnerships (the AMP-T2D project).

    The group’s goals include:
    1) aggregating data from a large collection of genetic studies; (b) scaling up the genetic analyses in order to translate these data into medical knowledge; and (c) serving the results of these analyses to the interested parties around the world via web-based portals. The portal is available at type
    2.diabetesgenetics.org.The successful candidate will contribute to the development of multiple websites, using data drawn from a REST API to deliver graphics, tables, and explanations to end-users. Clearly written code with developer-contributed tests is essential, since the modules we write now will be shared across multiple systems and will grow and expand over time. Software engineering tasks will range across our technology stack, from HTML, JavaScript, and CSS on the front end, to coding Grails and Groovy middleware, as well as working with data pulled from both APIs and RDBs.

    We use aspects of the Agile process, utilize continuous integration, and depend upon an integrated suite of tests. The successful candidate will work closely with a small team (3-6 members) of engineers, and must also be able to interact comfortably with computational and biological scientists. The working environment is that of a world-class scientific institution, where staff are devoted to the betterment of human health through the application of science. Applicants should be deeply motivated, enthusiastic, and ready to help change the world.
