Current Employment Opportunity
CyVerse is the National Science Foundation’s premier data management platform, working to design, deploy, and expand a national cyberinfrastructure for life sciences research and train scientists in its use. This initiative brings together biologists, computer and information scientists and engineers, as well as experts from other disciplines, all working on integrated teams. CyVerse staff tackle prevailing computational and data-centric problems associated with providing large-scale research infrastructure for life science research.
We are seeking highly enthusiastic, motivated software engineers, who will help create the next generation of cyberinfrastructure for the life sciences; these software engineers will typically identify software requirements from CyVerse staff, other developers and users; architect and implement solutions that meet those requirements and provide the best user experience possible; and work with other members of the Core Services Team to optimize existing features within CyVerse’s products. These positions will focus on enhancing and extending the functionality of CyVerse’s tools and platforms. As more than one position is potentially available, we will continue to review new applications as they come in for a period of up to six months from the review date. Candidates should continue to apply, as the needs for these positions continues to evolve.
The ideal candidates should have a passion for building robust, stable software solutions integrating open source software, have extensive knowledge of web and systems programming, and have a holistic understanding of web servers, databases, systems, networking, and security. Candidates may be asked to provide examples of prior scripts or source code.
