About the Zhang Lab:

The Zhang Lab's mission is to integrate high-dimensional single-cell multi-omics data into clinical decision-making and drug discovery. We are motivated Computational Biologists to use large-scale genomics and clinical data to discover novel disease-associated biological mechanisms to optimize patient treatment strategies. We develop and validate analytical and computational methodologies and interpret the results in a disease-orientated and systems immunology way. Dr. Zhang is also an Investigator involved in the NIH-funded Accelerating Medicines Partnership Rheumatoid Arthritis and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (AMP RA/SLE) Consortium. The Zhang Laboratory has several research projects with existing large-scale primary single-cell datasets. We are dedicated to developing and optimizing single-cell multi-omics analytical methods and pipelines, and validating and applying internal and public methods to reveal disease-relevant features and pathways from patients with inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. We believe in collaborations, encourage sharing, promote diversity, and maintain scientific integrity to pursue high-quality science.

The Software Engineer will play an important role in advancing this mission by developing and maintaining computational pipelines and open-source software for large-scale single-cell omics datasets.

Nature of Work:

The Zhang Lab is looking to hire a Software Engineer who will be an expert in integrative genomics data analysis. The candidate will be expected to analyze and manage large collections of single-cell RNA-seq, single-cell CITE-seq, mass cytometry, single-cell ATAC-seq, and single-cell spatial transcriptomic data including both primary and public cohorts through collaborative projects.

This position will provide an opportunity to develop and improve open-source software products that serve multiple communities of users. The software engineer will also have the opportunity to develop new tools in the areas of data visualization, machine learning, deep learning, and single-cell omics data.

The engineer will work closely with grad students, postdocs, and other stakeholders to design and implement software packages, data processing pipelines, machine learning applications, and comprehensive documentation.

The engineer will also join a highly interactive, supportive, and interdisciplinary group of faculties, staff scientists, postdoctoral fellows, engineers, and students in The Center for Health Artificial Intelligence (AI) and closely interact with faculties from the Department of Medicine Division of Rheumatology. They will enjoy access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

The Center for Health AI fosters a thriving community of researchers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine who are inventing and deploying advanced analytics and knowledge integration approaches. The goal of building this community is to make the Anschutz Medical Campus a leader in translating data into advances in research practice, health care delivery, and population health and in scaling these to provide nationwide benefit through innovative technologies.
