We help CCS members and collaborators to design systems and write proposals for the informatics components of their projects, as well as build and implement these systems.
We are currently looking for a software engineer to participate in the design and construction of software tools that are being developed as part of the BAO, LIFE and RegenBase projects. These tools will facilitate the search, exploration, visualization and analysis of complex data generated by chemical biology experimental systems. The emphasis of these projects is on the development of user friendly search applications that leverage semantic models to help retrieve the most relevant results as quickly as possible. We will also be exploring methods of presentation and visualization.
The Software Engineer will be directly involved in all phases of the software development life cycle with a major emphasis on analysis, design, technical and user documentation, and software development. This individual will participate in the analysis, design, coordination, and development of software systems for the BAO project. As a member of the software development group, and under the supervision of senior technical leads, the Software Engineering will enhance currently existing systems and tools, and develop new software systems as necessary. The Software Engineer will be required to work closely with ontology developers and content curators on a routine basis.
Requirements: Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or other related field. 3 years of experience developing multi-tier Java applications, and significant experience in the development of relational database applications. Preference will be given to applicants familiar with the biomedical domain, in particular small molecule chemicals and HTS data, bioinformatics and bioinformatics databases; semantic technologies, i.e. OWL, SPARQL, and Jena; and knowledge of Pubchem, PUG, PubChem XML schema and representations of chemical structures.
