Software Developer 2 - Job Grade J - 100% FTE, Exempt,
School of Engineering, Bioengineering Department
This position is an opportunity to contribute to one of the most exciting new frontiers of computational biology. Specifically, the creation of a “whole-cell” computer model that explicitly takes all of the known information about each gene and molecule into account to predict cell behaviors was called an “ultimate goal” of biology, and “a grand challenge for the 21st century. The Covert Lab reported completion of the first such model in 2012, an achievement that was recently highlighted in the journal Cell as one of the most important advances reported by that journal in its entire 40-year existence.
Now, with a major new award from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, our group is building a top-flight team to develop and advance this modeling approach in order to have the largest possible impact on the world. In particular, we are looking for a computational biology-oriented software engineer to contribute to whole-cell modeling by developing tools to improve workflow and analysis of experimental and/or simulation data, improve distributed computing performance, and support open-source sharing of both simulation and experimental data (including through data visualization) as well as the modeling platform itself.
