    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS/Consultant @ Columbia University -- New York, NY (US)
    Submitted by Michelle Quintana; posted on Wednesday, February 20, 2013


    The Center for Infection and Immunity at the Mailman School of Public Health has an immediate opening for a programmer consultant in the bioinformatics department. The successful candidate would provide support on ongoing projects related to migration of software and databases on a high performance compute cluster. The candidate should have strong knowledge of perl, oracle sun-grid engine, shell scripting and transferring data between the servers. The candidate should be very comfortable in using repositories such as git and cvs and should have strong knowledge of resource optimization and allocation. The candidate is expected to demonstrate the following skills:
    • At least 2-3 years of experience in software development. Experience in bioinformatics and writing pipelines would be strongly preferred.
    • The position requires the ability to work in Unix environments consisting of high performance clusters. Understanding of multi-threading tools (SGE, MPI), resource management and allocation would be a big plus.
    • At least 2-3 years of academic or industrial experience working with Perl and shell scripting.
    • The candidate will perform other duties as assigned.


    The position is expected to last for 3-6 months with a minimum of 15-20 hrs per week.
