    This position is a member of the Plant Systems Biology Group within the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) through the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Under the general supervision of the principal investigator, Joshua Heazlewood, the position will work as part of a team to develop software tools to exploit large scale proteomics data from the model plants Arabidopsis and rice. The developer will work with scientists and software developers to create a user friendly interface for existing bioinformatics software, as well as develop new tools for the analysis of proteins. In particular, this software developer will be responsible for further developing and expanding a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) the MASCP Gator (, into a functional proteomics portal to analyze protein modifications from experimental data. The position involves collaboration with internal and external collaborators.


    • Drive the design and development of a graphical interface for a ModHunter utility, using JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS, NodeJS and other web technologies.
    • Add functionality, design and develop the MASCP Gator and 1001 Proteomes portals including graphical interface front-end, database and other modular back-end components.
    • Analyze biological datasets (proteomics, genomic etc) and integrate into existing tools
    • Interface and develop tools for the DOE Kbase program as part of a suite of JBEI modules
    • Rapidly prototype graphical user interface ideas and implement revised functionality
    • Provide user support by responding to new feature requests and bug reports.
    • Document and track feedback from end users.
    • Promote collaborative effort with other research and development groups.
    • Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, to accomplish team goals.


    • PhD in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics or related areas.
