    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATIC Web Developer @ Clemson University -- Clemson, SC (US)
    Submitted by Alex Feltus; posted on Thursday, April 11, 2013


    The Clemson University Genomics Institute (CUGI), a research and service Institute at Clemson University, is looking for a new team member to focus on the development of genomics-based web sites and databases. Duties will include integration of multiple types of large genomic data sets into scientist-targeted websites and corresponding development of online software tools to enable access and manipulation of the data. As a member of a scientific facility, the successful applicant will be exposed to many types of exciting new genomics technologies and be provided with the opportunity to work on a variety of different project types. This position requires positive interaction with other informaticians, wet-lab scientists, and collaborators. It will offer the opportunity to publish in peer-reviewed journals, attend and present at scientific conferences, and participate in cutting edge open source code development in the arena of bioinformatics.

    While this position is planned to be an ongoing, long-term position at CUGI, an already NSF-funded project will be the initial focus. This particular project requires major development and expansion of a plant genomics website in support of a multi-institutional NSF-funded grant. The website will provide access for scientists to data types such as transcriptomes, genomes, genetic and physical maps for a variety of organisms. The website is being developed using an existing, collaborative open source framework and will require close collaboration with scientists at Clemson and other universities to leverage and expand the code base. The workflow will include writing software pipelines to process the raw data, working with other scientists to extrapolate meaningful results, integrating the data into databases, and building the user interface systems for scientists to view, download, search and manipulate the data. These genomic datasets are primary examples of the new wave of "Big Data", and of primary concern will be leveraging high performance computational resources and optimizing the online resources for fast access and fast searching of large datasets.


    Minimum Requirements from the the state of South Carolina:
    A high school diploma and experience in the modification and maintenance of system programs, the design and development of system software or the testing and debugging of system software. A bachelor's degree in computer science or related field may be substituted for required work experience.


    • BS or MS degree in Computer Science or equivalent
    • Significant programming experience in a Linux environment with a language such as perl or php
    • Exposure to linux systems administration
    • Experience installing and maintaining an Apache webserver
    • Experience installing and maintaining PostgresSQL, MySQL and/or Oracle databases
    Website development:
    • Experience with web technologies such as CSS, HTML, JavaScript, AJAX
    • Database development experience with tools such as PostGreSQL or MySQL
    Additional Advantageous Skills:
    • Exposure to bioinformatic data sets, especially next generation sequencing of RNA and DNA
    • Experience working within and developing modules for a content management system such as Drupal
    • Experience with grid computing, including installing software on grid nodes and using a scheduling system such as PBS
    • Experience with collaborative software development including version control systems such as git
    • Experience with linux systems administration including security, software installation, managing users and permissions, and creating software development environments for multiple projects
    • Enthusiasm for learning computational and biological science
    • Ability to work with a wide variety of different people and cooperate on a team
    • Ability to manage and complete solo projects with minimum supervision
