Software Engineer, Full-Stack (Life Sciences) (apply online)
Software engineers at the Software & Application Innovation Lab (SAIL) contribute to a variety of cutting-edge computational and data-driven research efforts while developing their skills in the latest technologies within a professional software engineering environment. The projects undertaken by SAIL software engineers have tangible and direct impacts on academic research, public service, and industry partners in healthcare, finance, and technology.
As a full-stack software engineer, you will work within an agile team defining and building prototypes and production-quality open source libraries, applications, systems, and databases in domains such as genetic circuit design and synthetic biology, biomedical engineering, neuroscience, digital health, and others. Opportunities for full-stack development work outside of these domains will also be available. This role provides the flexibility to identify and prioritize efforts and to shape the long-term vision of our research agenda. In addition to working with other professional software engineers, you have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers at Boston University and beyond who are nationally respected as leaders in their corresponding areas of research. Additionally, we expect you to take advantage of opportunities to develop new skills in almost every project and enjoy tackling diverse challenges in a flexible work environment, and to mentor software engineer interns.
SAIL is housed within the Hariri Institute for Computing, which catalyzes, enables, and supports interdisciplinary research efforts across Boston University.
This position is contingent upon the availability of grant funding.
