Title: Scientific web programmer
Company: Energy Biosciences Institute, University of Illinois
Contact: David LeBauer <dlebauer@xxxxxxxxx> 
Hiring for: Full-time  
Description:
Scientific web programmer

Background

Our group aims to provide cutting-edge resources to support decisions
based on ecosystem science data. There is increasing demand for the
ability to forecast the effects of land use change and biofuel
production. We use data syntheses and ecosystem simulation modeling to
provide ecological forecasts to scientists as well as non-specialists. 

An important objective of our work is the development of user-friendly
web interfaces that simplify our computational workflows. We aim to
provide forecasts that are more transparent, reproducible, and
automated, and thus ultimately more defensible to both peers and the
public. Furthermore the web interfaces reduce the redundancy of effort
among modeling groups, facilitate collaboration, and make models more
accessible to the research community and public.

Job Description

We seek a scientific web application programmer to join the ecosystem
modeling program in the Energy Biosciences Institute at the University
of Illinois in Urbana Champaign. The programmer will work with our team
to develop web resources for ecological data management, modeling, and
statistical inference. The programmer will assume responsibility for the
design, implementation, and maintenance of front-end and back-end
software that will provide into effective interfaces and data
visualizations for the following web-based software tools:

- Biofuel Ecophysiological Traits and Yields database (BETYdb,
https://ebi-forecast.igb.illinois.edu/bety),
- Predictive Ecosystem Analyzer modeling workflow
(http://www.pecanproject.org)
- Greenhouse Gas Value Calculator
(http://www.globalchangesolutionsllc.com/GHGVcalc.html).

Other members of the development team collect data, manage existing
data, and develop models used by these websites. We work in a
collaborative interdisciplinary environment with a focus on providing
high quality scientific content. 

The programmer will be expected to provide leadership in the adoption of
best-practices among all developers to support development and quality
control, to remain current on the latest web technologies, to apply new
knowledge to a cutting edge system, and to provide leadership in
web-based front-end design and implementation decisions.

This position, pending approval, will provide competitive salary and
excellent benefits. The University of Illinois is an Equal
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. U of I is also major
contributor to the fields of computer science and plant biology, and
home to the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, which
provides informatics and computing support to our project. In addition
to its strong technology base, the micro-urban community of
Champaign-Urbana has an internationally diverse population and a vibrant
arts/culture/entertainment scene. 

Required Experience

Candidates with a bachelors degree in Computer Science, Math, or other
fields will be considered. Programming experience with web
interface/back end design using web framework systems (e.g. Rails or
Django) in a Linux environment. Experience with or willingness to learn
Ruby and SQL. Demonstrated ability to adapt and learn new skills.
Excellent organizational skills. Motivation to create a user-friendly
environment to support work on problems related to biofuel production,
ecosystem functioning, and global change by scientists and
non-specialists.
Desirable Experience

Ruby-on-Rails development, R, GIS or similar visualization software.
Familiarity with Model View Controller (MVC) and Representational State
Transfer (REST) approaches. Experience working in a collaborative
scientific research environment.

How To Apply

Evaluation of applications is rolling with a preferred start date of
summer 2012. A cover letter, CV, and up to three examples of previous
work should be emailed to Melinda Laborg (laborg@xxxxxxxxxxxx). Please
