Organization: EB-Environ Genomics & Systems Bio

Berkeley Lab’s Environmental Genomics & Systems Biology Division (https://biosciences.lbl.gov/divisions/egsb/) has an opening for a Front End Developer to work with the KBase (https://kbase.us/) team. Designed to meet the key challenges of systems biology (predicting and ultimately designing biological function), KBase integrates numerous biological datasets and analysis tools into a unified, extensible system that allows researchers to collaboratively generate and **** hypotheses about biological functions. The project’s long-term goal is to help researchers to understand how plants and microbes interact with and affect each other and environmental processes and how these interactions could be harnessed for sustainable bioenergy and environmental solutions.

The Front End Developer will design, develop, and install software solutions for computational biology applications. The Front End Developer will be able to build high-quality, innovative and fully performing software in compliance with coding standards and technical design. In addition, the Front End Developer will have opportunities to work on a wide range of software development tasks, including user interface design, data integration, database and software interface design, and high-performance computing and bioinformatic algorithm development. This position should also be comfortable working in a collaborative, team-oriented environment, especially using Agile approaches such as Scrum, Kanban or rapid application development. This position requires self-starters who can operate independently, learn new material rapidly and be willing and/or able to develop as full stack and polyglot developers.

This position will be hired at a level commensurate with the business needs; and skills, knowledge, and abilities of the successful candidate.

What You Will Do:
• Work with other KBase project members to implement software to meet stakeholder needs.
• Work closely with users of the analysis software to ensure that their needs are being met.
• Work with users to **** and debug applications.
• Prepare presentations and papers for internal use, conferences, and peer-reviewed publication. Maintain accurate documentation and source-code control for all work-products.
• Execute full lifecycle software development.
• Write well-designed, testable, efficient code.
• Produce specifications and determine operational feasibility.
• Integrate software components into a fully functional software system.
• Develop software verification plans and quality assurance procedures.
• Document and maintain software functionality.
• Tailor and deploy software tools, processes and metrics.
• Comply with project plans and industry standards.

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.

Notes:
• This is a full time, 2 year term appointment with the possibility of extension or conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
• Classification will depend upon the applicant's level of skills, knowledge, and abilities. (For dual postings - add this to the position summary at the end of the paragraph) This position will be filled at the Developer 1 or Developer 2 level, dependent on experience.


• M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
• This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
• Work will be primarily performed at: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

Learn About Us:
The Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase, https://kbase.us/) is a software and data platform designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting and designing biological function. KBase integrates data and tools in a unified graphical interface so users do not need to access them from numerous sources or learn multiple systems in order to create and run sophisticated systems biology workflows. Users can perform large-scale analyses and combine multiple lines of evidence to model plant and microbial physiology and community dynamics.

KBase is the first large-scale bioinformatics system that enables users to upload their own data, analyze it (along with collaborator and public data), build increasingly realistic models, and share and publish their workflows and conclusions. KBase aims to provide a knowledge base: an integrated environment where knowledge and insights are created and multiplied.
