We are looking for a software developer to join a team of
molecular and computational biologists to contribute to cutting
edge scientific research at one of Australia's leading medical
research institutes.

The role will involve development of databases and applications
designed to help biologists to access and analyse experimentally
generated data in effective and interesting ways in order to
inform and guide new medical research.

We have a great team environment that values flexibility and
autonomy, and the field of research is rapidly expanding as new
technologies enable molecular biologists to produce exponentially
increasing amounts of data.

We are open to a variety of development tools and methodologies,
but have a strong bias towards Python, C++, HTML/AJAX, WSGI and
open source software.

To be considered, you should have:

- B.Sc. or an equivalent, with a background in one of computing,
   mathematics, statistics or biology areas an advantage
- Experience with programming and databases, preferably in
   python and web based application development
- Strong problem solving skills and interest in working in a
   research environment
- Strong interpersonal and communication skills

Appointment level and salary will depend on qualifications and
previous experience. Up to 17% superannuation and very attractive
salary packaging options are available.
