Open Positions

Data Scientist/Application Developer Sr - Limited Term

The Data Scientist will focus on the development of data visualization and/or data analysis applications for MicrobiomeDB.org. For candidates with stronger data visualization interests and skills, the goal of this position will be to construct tools that empower users to quickly interrogate microbial community datasets (from 16S marker gene and shotgun metagenomic studies) using interactive javascript-based graphics. For candidates with a stronger background and interest in statistics, the goal would be to develop analytical tools that allow users to leverage the scale and longitudinal aspect of data on MicrobiomeDB.org.

The position will also contribute to (and benefit from) broader dataviz and analytics efforts that are ongoing across these web resources. The position will embed in a team of >30 biologists, bioinformaticians and software developers that work to translate requirements generated by clinical and scientific user communities into effective data representations and interfaces, enabling powerful data-mining capabilities. Successful applicants could come from a variety of backgrounds, including programming, statistics or biology. Participation in the preparation of scientific papers and technical documentation and attendance at scientific meetings is encouraged but not required. This is a limited term position.
