    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS Database Application Developer (BDAD01) @ Igenica, Inc.--Burlingame, CA (US)
    Submitted by Igenica, Inc.; posted on Wednesday, March 07, 2012


    Igenica, Inc. is a biopharmaceutical company focused on the creation of breakthrough antibody-based therapeutics to address the unmet medical needs of cancer patients. The company has developed innovative technology platforms for discovering novel tumor antigens and cancer antibodies and is supported by world-renowned scientific experts and advisors. Igenica has a strong syndicate of investors and is expanding its research and development operations. Igenica is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.


    This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated database application development specialist with bioinformatics expertise to drive Igenica's efforts in designing and implementing mechanisms for effective storage, retrieval, and sharing of datasets among Igenica's scientific team. A primary role for a successful candidate will involve the development and implementation of a relational or object-based database system and knowledge-based discovery platform for mining proteomic expression datasets. This will involve organizing and integrating disparate data sets in various formats (Excel sheets, flat files, XML output files, etc.) into a cohesive structure, and creating an interface for users to interact with the data. The candidate will design and establish the necessary infrastructure so that future data integration takes place as the data is generated in each laboratory.

    Additionally, a successful candidate will assume a high degree of responsibility in maintaining and protecting Igenica intellectual property, will utilize his/her skills in streamlining the target discovery process, and will provide mechanisms for real-time tracking of each project's status. Importantly, the successful applicant must work effectively with a broad spectrum of Igenica scientists so that the resulting tools meet users' needs, are easy to grasp, and can be smoothly integrated into users' workflows.


    The position requires a Ph.D. or MS in Computer Science or equivalent degree, ideally with several years of relevant experience in developing database applications for the sciences. Familiarity with public databases such as UniProt and GO and knowledge of analytical tools suitable for proteomic (e.g. mass spectrometric) data mining are considered highly desirable assets. Competence with SQL, R, Perl, Python, C++ or other similar programming languages is also deemed a plus. The successful candidate should also be able to work independently, and possess effective communication and organizational skills. Prior experience in the biotechnology industry is preferred.


    This position provides an excellent opportunity to contribute significantly to the continued growth of the company. We provide a unique work environment, a competitive salary, stock options, and excellent benefits.


    To apply, please include your name and this position title in the subject line of your email, and send your CV or resume to: careers[at]
