Do you want to help enable and advance groundbreaking computational 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 biology. You will join teams of researchers associated with a new Center for Computational Biology, the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB), and the Lewis-Sigler Institute (LSI) for Integrative Genomics to provide computational expertise in algorithm development and selection, code development, and optimization to create efficient and scalable research code.
If you have a strong background in scientific programming, academic research, and an interest in computational 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 EEB and LSI to enable and accelerate research software development within the department.
Bachelor’s degree in a related field. A Ph.D. in a related field or equivalent experience in a research setting is preferred.
