APPLICATION CLOSING DATE: November 11th 2021
The Human Technopole (HT) is seeking a junior to mid-level developer for the new Software and Web Development unit of the Centre for Computational Biology. This unit will implement (re-)usable tools and computational modules on demand, making HT internal methods and curated resources available to the bioinformatics community at large. It will support research groups and collaborators in translating prototypic applications into robust software suites, aiding the production of fully computable scientific manuscripts.
The hired candidate will contribute to the development of client-server architecture-based applications fulfilling researchers needs, proposing solutions which are scalable, modular, and have a great focus on user experience, intuitiveness, and design principles.
The candidate will have the chance to work at a full-stack level, dealing with both front-end and back-end state-of-the-art technologies, and will also be involved in DevSecOps activities to provide robust, tested, and secure code deployed in on-premises clusters.
Furthermore, they will work with automated data gathering/scraping and pre-processing to ingest polished data both from outside and inside HT research centres into curated databases and data storage systems.
The successful candidate will have strong software engineering skills and mindset. Foundations of full-stack web development, data visualization, data-science and database systems design are required for this multidisciplinary role. The candidate will mostly operate under the supervision of a senior web/software engineer who will collaborate on the same projects. An academic background is a definite plus for better understanding the needs of data scientists, biologists, and researchers who constitute the target audience of the software which the selected candidate will build.
No prior knowledge of cancer biology, genetics, cancer therapeutics, drug discovery and any other biology related knowledge is needed for this position, although it would be a plus.
HT offers a highly collaborative, international culture. The working language at HT is English. HT fosters top quality, interdisciplinary research by promoting a vibrant environment consisting of independent research groups with access to outstanding graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and core facilities.
HT is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to a leading, internationally competitive, research organization and seeks to promote a collegial and open atmosphere. The compensation package granted will be internationally competitive and will comprise a pension scheme, medical and other social benefits, and support for relocation.
Please apply by sending a CV, a motivation letter (both in English), and the contacts of three referees.
