The research laboratories of Dr. Frank Pugh and Dr. Shaun Mahony, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at The Pennsylvania State University, are seeking a highly motivated, senior engineer with proven experience in developing open-source bioinformatic software and research applications. For the right applicant with software engineering experience, this could be filled as a telecommute position.

The hired individual will be the technical team lead for development of bioinformatics software and database platforms for a lab of ~25 scientists, faculty and technicians. This position involves designing and identifying the requirements for interactive database applications and programming novel methods primarily for epigenomics data derived from next-generation sequencing (NGS).

  • ability to develop and support a codebase written with Python, JavaScript and Java;
  • proficiency in other programming languages is expected.
  • Professional software engineering training and experience with peer design, code reviews, source code management and deployment management will be part of the expectations for this position.
  • This job will be filled as a level 3, or level 4, depending upon the successful candidate's competencies, education, and experience. Typically requires a Master's degree or higher in a field of study with focus on computational research methods, plus four years of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience for a level 3. Additional experience and/or education and competencies are required for a level 4 job classification.
