The Brinkman Laboratory at Simon Fraser University (Greater Vancouver, B.C., Canada) has an opening for a database developer position as part of an internationally collaborative project involving researchers from SFU, the University of British Columbia and Teagasc, Ireland. This person will take a lead role in the continued development of InnateDB (; Lynn et al, Mol. Sys. Biol. 2008; Breuer et al Nucl. Acids Res. 2013), an IMEx-member database and analysis platform facilitating systems-level analyzes of the immune response and the entire mammalian interactome. This work will be coupled with development of a new Allergy and Asthma Portal that capitalizes on, and significantly expands upon, this resource.

The successful candidate will work as part of an interdisciplinary team of software/database developers, bioinformaticians, data curators and biologists, including our national and international collaborators. Tasks will include maintenance of the existing database, updating data from external databases, improving the user interface and the development and implementation of novel analysis and visualization tools including software for network-based analyzes.

The qualified applicant will have Bachelor’s degree in the computer sciences. Biology/Bioinformatics experience is preferred but not essential. The applicant should have strong knowledge of Linux/Unix, Perl, MySQL. Experience with Java and Struts/JSP would be highly desirable. Experience with PHP, Javascript or CSS would be an asset.
