The Institute for Genome Sciences (IGS), Informatics Resource Center, is recruiting for a Open Rank Bioinformatics Software Engineer I and Bioinformatics Software Engineer II position. This position will be filled as either the Bioinformatics Software Engineer I or II. IGS employs multiple omics and bioinformatics approaches to understand function in health and disease, to study molecular and cellular networks in a variety of model systems, and to generate data and bioinformatics resources of value to the international scientific community. The Informatics Resource Center (IRC) at IGS includes faculty and staff with expertise in genomics and transcriptomics in a diverse set of species, microbiome analysis, evolutionary analysis, tool development, visualization platforms, databases, data coordination, and web development. The Genomics Resource Center (GRC) is a high-throughput laboratory and data analysis group supporting the scientific programs of IGS and its collaborators, both across the University of Maryland Baltimore campus and across the globe. Using multiple sequencing and analysis platforms, the GRC generates high-quality genomic data in a cost-effective manner. Together the IRC and GRC support research across a spectrum of biological areas both on the University of Maryland Baltimore campus and around the world.

Benefits Information:

UMB offers a generous benefits package, which includes 22 vacation days, 14 floating and holidays, 15 sick days; comprehensive health insurance and retirement options; and tuition remission for employees and their dependents at any of the University System of Maryland schools.

Bioinformatics Software Engineer (BSE) I

The selected Bioinformatics Software Engineer I (BSEI) will work under the supervision of senior engineers to develop and maintain software that drives, interacts with, or extracts data from complex engineered systems. BSEs work to contribute to projects intended to develop software or design databases to accomplish specific scientific or analytical objectives. They will develop tools, protocols or structured methods for organizing or presenting data from analytical or experimental systems.

Essential Functions: Maintain software based on the requirements specified by senior engineers and scientists. Under the supervision of senior engineers, maintain analysis pipelines using the tools and systems available at the Institute of Genome Science (IGS). This will include installing software and writing wrapper scripts to invoke the software to process data. Manage omics data generated and maintained at IGS including loading and querying data from database systems, writing scripts to transform the data to necessary formats, and downloading and transforming data maintained in public data repositories. Ensures basic quality assurance of data and software generated by IGS. Perform other duties as assigned. Bioinformatics Software Engineer II
