Part-time job opportunity in the Schmidt lab: Programmer

Job posting for part-time programmer
Thomas M. Schmidt laboratory

In the Schmidt lab, we are managing information on bacterial isolates associated with the Human Genome Project and metagenomic and other sequence information associated with soil microbial communities. We are looking for a part-time programmer to help set up a system to manage this data and write scripts to assist researchers in data analysis, with minimal duties in administration of Mac and Windows computers. There will be additional opportunities for the programmer to be involved in developing and refining tools for metagenomic analyses that are currently being developed in the lab.

The successful candidate should have a strong knowledge of Python, Perl, Ruby, C++ or Java, SQL (PostgreSQL or MySQL) and a version control system. Experience with web programming and Linux systems administration would also be desirable. A background or some coursework in biology would be beneficial.
