    Opportunity: Computational Biology Program Developer (#92232) @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- Berkeley, CA (US)
    Submitted by Bill Cannan; posted on Tuesday, March 23, 2021

    BACKGROUND

    Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's (LBNL, www.lbl.gov), Biosciences Area Office (biosciences.lbl.gov) has an opening for Program Developer for Computational Biology. In this role the successful candidate will be a co-member of the Biosciences Strategic Programs Development Group (SPDG) and the Computing Sciences Area Office. This position will help to establish new research programs at the intersection of Biosciences and Computing, and identify strategic opportunities where both Areas can collaborate to increase scientific impact.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    This successful candidate will primarily support program development activities like projects that combine some of the following elements: imaging, biomanufacturing, environmental biology, sensors and controls for automated experimentation, machine learning, data management, and HPC and other related topics. The Program Developer will be responsible for a variety of activities, including idea generation and visioning, planning and facilitation of workshops, drafting and editing white papers, and developing ongoing relationships with a variety of internal and external stakeholders. The successful candidate will be building new research capabilities at Berkeley Lab in a growing area of research for the Department of Energy.

    What You Will Do:
    • Manage a portfolio of program development projects based at the intersection of biosciences and computing sciences core capabilities, particularly in partnership with the Computational Biology Group and other interested researchers and managers across the Biosciences and Computing Sciences Areas.
    • Work to identify new strategic opportunities to increase the Areas' scientific impact.
    • Assist researchers in drafting, editing, and revising white papers to articulate clear and compelling national-scale program concepts.
    • Assist in the planning, execution, and facilitation of workshops with internal and external stakeholders.
    • Assist researchers in drafting, editing, and revising workshop reports resulting from strategic workshops.
    • Network and arrange meetings with possible sponsors and collaborators.
    • Identify and secure additional funds for the execution of program development activities.
    • Utilize and improve tracking tools to measure progress and to provide analysis on successes, gaps, and new strategic directions for the Biosciences and Computing Sciences partnership.
    • Serve as the main point of contact for Area Management Leads for tracking progress towards meeting goals on a regular schedule.

    REQUIREMENTS

    What is Required:
    • 4-8 years of experience in a biology, computational biology, or computational field.
    • Experience working with scientists at all levels on collaborative, multidisciplinary projects.
    • Strong project management, coordination, and tracking experience.
    • Demonstrated experience developing and executing complex projects.
    • Demonstrated problem-solving skills; ability to resolve diverse range of complex technical problems and issues using good judgment and decision-making.
    • Ability to multitask and prioritize complex competing problems.
    • Effective interpersonal skills necessary for working in a diverse and distributed team environment.
    • Ability to work independently as well as with groups of scientists and managers.
    • Demonstrated research and analysis skills.
    Desired Qualifications:
    • Ph.D. in a biology, computational biology, or computational field.
    • Experience with computational biology or computational research.
    • Experience with philanthropic organizations.
    • Federal or state government experience.
    • Demonstrated experience leading stakeholder engagement activities, including workshops or other scientific meetings.
    • Experience in strategic planning, program management, and/or program development.
    • Experience interacting with sponsors.

    TERMS

    • This is a full time 2 year term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
    • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position.
