The Biosciences Area within Berkeley Lab has an exciting career opportunity available for a software engineer to develop and deploy software solutions for a new framework for microbiome data science. The Department of Energy is funding a pilot program, the “National Microbiome Data Collaborative” (NMDC) which aims to address many of the pressing issues in microbiome research, including data integration, making data FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable) and establishing standardized workflows for data processing.
The NMDC software engineer will collaborate with a diverse set of engineers, UI/UX experts, and scientists, to design and develop a modular infrastructure to enable the scientific community to manage and explore petabytes of microbiome data. This is a unique opportunity to shape a system that will advance the community’s ability to integrate and interrogate multi-omics data sets generated across the globe from diverse sources.

JGI & Berkeley Lab: A View to Fuel Innovative Science in the Public Interest
They say it’s all about location and Berkeley Lab has it all: a view above the San Francisco Bay, cool breezes, and world-class science within a diverse, respectful research ecosystem of 5,000 people. Nearly 90 years ago, Ernest Orlando Lawrence, the inventor of the cyclotron, brought physicists, biologists, engineers and mathematicians together in Berkeley above the University of California campus to tackle the most urgent scientific challenges. Today, after garnering 13 Nobel Prizes, Berkeley Lab has sustained and grown that tradition of open, interdisciplinary team science, exemplified by how the U.S. Department of Energy Joint Institute (JGI) addresses the most pressing energy and environmental challenges. This summer, JGI takes up residence in the new, state-of-the-art Integrative Genomics Building (IGB) along with the U.S. Department of Energy Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) to expand the frontiers of energy and environmental science in partnership with the worldwide community of researchers. Will you join us and be a critical part of the next ground-breaking discoveries in the public interest?
The JGI is comprised of highly-skilled and diverse talent founded on a culture of scientific excellence, trust, curiosity, passion, and collaboration.
