General Summary/Purpose

Our team is looking for a skilled software developer/engineer to help us create an integrated suite of tools that can be used to integrate knowledge from multiple domains in order to discover new causes of and treatments for disease. While a successful candidate’s primary focus will be on software and software engineering, they will play an active role in the design and direction of the overall project.

We are looking for an individual who is:

  • Motivated and excited to learn: Our group often finds itself on the leading (bleeding) edge of software tools and methodology. A successful candidate should be able to adapt to new environments, approaches, tools and, when necessary to be able to extend an existing tool for a new purpose or, if necessary, develop an entirely new approach to solve a problem.
  • Self-directed: A successful candidate needs to be able to set their own schedule and goals but, at the same time, is willing and able to ask for guidance and assistance when uncertainty arises.
  • Able to thrive in a loosely structured research-oriented environment.


Specific Duties & Responsibilities

  • Python Software Development – A significant portion of this project will involve developing and enhancing software in the Python 3 environment. Candidate should have solid Python 3 skills and be comfortable with the latest Python 3 libraries and tools. Candidate will create, document, publish, distribute and maintain software libraries.
  • Working with RDF, OWL and Knowledge Graphs – Most of the data we are working is either already in RDF or is being transformed to it. Candidate will need a strong understanding of RDF, OWL, Linked Open Data and (ideally) knowledge graphs. Project tasks will include the transformation of information into standardized RDF, and storing RDF triples in a triple store or a graph database.
  • RESTful Web Services - Candidate must have (or develop) a solid understanding of the principles of RESTful web services and be able to consume, create, document and deploy RESTful APIs.
  • Docker – Candidate must be(come) familiar with the principles behind docker and be able to consume, create and deploy docker containers and compositions.
  • Java 8 or later – Candidate is familiar with the Java programming language and tools to develop software for data transformation, integration or other publishing tasks. Candidate may periodically need to modify, extend and deploy services based on working Java libraries or toolkits.

Minimum qualifications:

Bachelor’s degree required. Additional experience may be substituted for education.


Three years of related work experience with computer systems and applications. Additional education may substitute for experience:

Equivalency Formula: 30 undergraduate degree credits or 18 graduate degree credits = 1 year of experience. For jobs where equivalency is permitted, up to two years of non-related college coursework may be applied towards the total minimum education/experience required for the respective job.

Preferred qualifications:

Additional consideration will be given to skills in:

  • YAML and JSON – ability to read, consume and produce data using these formats
  • RDF and SPARQL – ability to read, consume and create RDF in Turtle and other formats. Experience with SPARQL preferred.
  • OWL, Reasoners and Ontologies – any experience in the use of, reasoning about, creation of ontologies. Extra points for BFO, OBO and/or SNOMED CT.
  • JSON-LD – ability to create JSON-LD contexts and use them to transform JSON into RDF. (Working knowledge of the JSON-LD 1.1 specification a plus.)
  • Jupyter notebooks and related libraries
  • Github, github actions, markdown
  • Terminologies and terminology services – With the expectation that we will need to build one of these, experience with terminology services and terminology service standards would be a plus.
  • HL7 FHIR – we are using FHIR, transforming FHIR and helping create new FHIR standards. Much of the work will be involved in various aspects of this environment, so familiarity would be beneficial.
  • Bioinformatics – knowledge in genes, genotypes, phenotypes, chromosomes, chemicals, …
  • Knowledge Graphs – Experiences with Graph databases such as Neo4J is a plus.
  • JavaScript – an ideal candidate would be fluent in JavaScript, CSS and client-side development tools
  • Databases – Familiar with common relational databases and SQL.

Special Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities

  • Ability to move about or sit for an extended period of time
  • Reaching by extending hand(s) or arm(s) in any direction
  • Finger dexterity required to manipulate objects with fingers for example, using a keyboard
  • Communication skills using the spoken word
