J. Craig Venter is a not-for-profit genomic research institute dedicated to advances in human health and the environment.

We are seeking a Bioinformatics Engineer (BE) to lead the ongoing project activities on the development and implementation of a suite of computational pipelines on workflow engines, and implement the customization of the user interfaces for accessing these pipelines through web-based portals and the integration with parallel computing environments, including but not limited by the following responsibilities:

  • Bioinformatics data processing and analytics - The BE will be responsible for implementing robust and scalable software engineering solutions to support the processing and analysis of flow/mass cytometry and RNA-seq data from multiple collaborative projects using state-of-the-art computational and statistical approaches.
  • Application programming interface - The BE will lead the development and implementation activities for integrating the existing computational components and cyberinfrastructures for standardized exchange of data and results of data analysis.
  • User interface for data and knowledge management - The BE will participate in the communication with end-users and collaborators to support the implementation of cutting-edge human-computer interaction (HCI) technologies for effective and efficient data integration, retrieval, and visualization, utilizing and implementing the use of ontologies, information standards, data models, and standardized data exchange formats.
  • Optimization of computational pipelines - The BE will also be responsible for implementing software solutions to support the assessment of the performance of a variety of computational pipelines under different configurations and user environments, and the automated re-configuration and optimization of these pipelines based on the assessment results.


The successful candidates should have a Master’s of Science or PhD degree in the computer sciences, computer engineering, bio-statistics or related field, with strong familiarity with bioinformatics, computational biology, data analytical portals and web-based software systems. Successful candidates should have advanced programming skills as well as experience with high performance computing and compute clusters.
