Do you want to help enable and advance groundbreaking Molecular Biology research through software development? Do you have a background in research but love to write code? Are you looking to apply your scientific programming expertise to a novel set of research problems? If so, Princeton University's Research Computing department is recruiting a Research Software Engineer to join the fast growing Research Software Engineering (RSE) Group.
In the RSE Group, we collectively provide computational research expertise to multiple divisions within the University. As a central team of software experts, we are focused on improving the quality, performance, and sustainability of Princeton’s computational research software. Our group is committed to building collaborative environments in which the best software engineering practices are valued, and to sharing and applying cross-disciplinary computational techniques in new and emerging areas.
In this position, you will be an integral member of multiple research teams focused on cutting-edge computational molecular biology and bioinformatics research. You will join teams of researchers associated with the Department of Molecular Biology to provide computational expertise in algorithm development and software design in order to create high-quality and sustainable research code.
If you have a strong background in scientific programming, academic research, and an interest in molecular biology you have the right skill set to make an immediate impact on multiple high-profile research projects.
This position will require you to work closely with colleagues in the Office of Information Technology (OIT) as well as with faculty, student/postdoctoral researchers, and technical staff in Molecular Biology to enable and accelerate research software development within the department.
