We are seeking a senior software developer to join Dr. Euan Ashley's team in the Department of Medicine at Stanford University. Dr. Ashley's research focuses on leveraging emerging technologies such as genomics and wearable sensors to provide insights into precision medicine ( https://ashleylab.stanford.edu/ ).
Our team runs the Bioinformatics core for a large NIH study (>$180M) tasked with building a molecular map of physical activity (MoTrPAC - https://commonfund.nih.gov/moleculartransducers/overview ). The program's goal is to study the molecular changes that occur during and after exercise to advance the understanding of how physical activity improves and preserves health. This incredible project will integrate very large volumes of clinical (imaging, EKG, wearable) and densely time sampled molecular data (DNA, RNA, ATAC, EPI sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics and the microbiome). The bioinformatics core will build cutting edge infrastructure to manage, analyze and disseminate this resource to the research community through the Google Cloud Platform. Our portal will push the boundaries of biomedical data analytics to provide insight on basic research and translational science such as the developments of new therapeutics.
Qualified candidates are expected to contribute to all phases of software development at MoTrPAC, including systems analysis, program design, development, and implementation.
Our stack is Python (Pyramid), ReactJS, ElasticSearch, and Postgres developed using modern cloud-enabled, open-source best practices.
Conceptualize design, implement, and develop solutions for complex system/programs independently.
Work with a variety of users to gain information, and develop intra-system trade offs between different users, as necessary; interact with a diverse client base and outside vendor contacts.
Document system builds and application configurations; maintain and update documentation as needed.
Provide technical analysis, design, development, conversion, and implementation work.
Work as a project leader, as needed, for projects of moderate complexity.
Serve as a technical resource for applications.
Compare, evaluate, and implement new features and technologies, and integrate them into the computing environment.
Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains d...edicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.

Stanford University is an equal opportunity employer and is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It welcomes nominations of and applications from women, members of minority groups, protected veterans and individuals with disabilities, as well as from others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research, teaching and clinical missions.
