    RESPONSIBILITIES

    The Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) is one of three Department of Energy centers established to conduct fundamental, genomics-based research on microbial and plant systems required to realize the national need for low-cost biofuels. The GLBRC is housed at the University of Wisconsin with collaborators at Michigan State University and other universities and national labs.

    As a member of a research team of faculty, staff, post docs, and graduate students, the Web Developer - Software Engineer will be part of an Informatics team supporting the research objectives of the GLBRC in scientific computing and computational infrastructure. The position requires a highly motivated team player who will participate in the design and implementation of custom web-based and desktop applications and databases for use by GLBRC scientists. Specific duties may include database design and implementation; requirements gathering; and software analysis, design, implementation, documentation, testing, deployment, and support. This will require effective communication and collaboration with end users (including researchers and bench scientists), bioinformaticians, software developers, and operational IT personnel.

    The candidate will design, develop, maintain, and operate scientific and analytical software, databases, and knowledgebases required by GLBRC. The well-qualified candidate will have knowledge of, and experience in developing and maintaining, medium-to-large scale strategic web-based software solutions in a research environment, using best practices with minimal supervision. The candidate may also help in developing and delivering user training and should be comfortable communicating in a variety of formats to scientists, management, and staff at all levels of a research institution.

    This position requires the ability to work both in a team and independently and the ability to communicate and collaborate with members of an inter-disciplinary team. Willingness and ability to rapidly learn new skills, concepts, and technologies is essential.
    This position offers an opportunity to play an important role in creating a keystone research center for the first great national challenge of the 21st century, sustainable energy independence. For additional information regarding the GLBRC, visit our website: www.glbrc.org.

    BACKGROUND

    An exciting Software Development opportunity has become available working with Dr Serena Nik-Zainal on several projects, including the clinical study INSIGNIA, which forms part of the research initiative COMSIG. The COMSIG consortium, funded by a Wellcome Trust Strategic Award, is focused on exploring the mutational signatures of DNA damage and repair processes. This includes work performed across a range of model organisms (yeast, worm), as well human studies such as INSIGNIA, which are a key focus for Dr Nik-Zainal's team. As part of this we are generating human iPSC lines from patients with germline mutations in DNA repair/replication pathways and generating parallel CRISPr/CAS-9 edited iPSC lines of the same genes. The over-arching objective is to explore mutational signatures in the context of the biological mechanisms associated with DNA repair, by integrating cellular/molecular approaches with genome-wide assays including genomic sequencing, RNA-seq and ChIP-seq.

    The successful candidate will be embedded in a multidisciplinary team and will be tasked with further contributing towards developing the analysis pipelines for this project and towards developing the public-facing website/database for the mutational signatures projects. The role involves working at the interface between scientific and IT staff on these projects to ensure efficient analysis of the DNA sequencing data sets. This website/database in envisaged as a reference resource for mutational signatures in the future. The position would suit a Bioinformatician/Software Developer who enjoys developing or enhancing software tools for analysis of complex NGS biological data sets and to make these efficient, visually appealing and interpretable by the scientific/clinical community. We are looking for an individual who enjoys working in a multi-disciplinary team environment to help solve complex IT issues which will ultimately aid our understanding of mutational processes in human cells.

    EXCERPT

    The challenge for Illumina, as with any other large company, is to continue to innovate while maintaining a grip on its core business. The company recently took a page from Alphabet by announcing a series of "moonshot" ventures, called Helix and Grail, which will create an App Store model for DNA informatics and bring early cancer screening tests into every doctor's office. And veteran Apple executive Phil Schiller joined Illumina's board this summer, giving the biotech company an injection of consumer marketing know-how.
