Database Programmer Analyst
We are seeking an individual to support computing resources and develop solutions to provide various statewide user groups access to data and other cyberinfrastructure deliverables of the Missouri Transect, a new five-year project supported by the National Science Foundation’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Over 30 investigators from nine institutions across the state are collaborating to investigate the impact of climate variability on urban and rural communities, plant productivity and natural ecosystems. The research and education activities are focused on understanding, modeling, and predicting short- and long-term trends in temperature and water availability; evaluating the impact of these trends on the productivity of native flora and agricultural crops; and assessing how different stakeholder communities are likely to respond to changing climate. The Missouri Transect will also support workforce development in three areas: undergraduate and graduate education; bioinformatics training for women, minorities and people with disabilities; and job training.
The Database Programmer Analyst will work with a cyberinfrastructure team that includes researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia, Washington University and the Danforth Plant Science Center, to develop computational tools and resources to support the entire Missouri Transect project. The team will focus on big data analytics to model high resolution climate, remote sensing, plant phenotype, imaging and genomics data. The computational resources will also be used to train students and researchers to creatively explore massive biological and environmental datasets, and to support outreach activities that inform the general public about climate variability and its predicted effects on agriculture and the environment. Responsibilities of the DB Programmer Analyst include 1) designing and developing web applications for access to Missouri Transect data, analytical tools and educational resources, 2) developing applications and standard operating procedures for research data submission and curation, 3) working with researchers to manage data, 4) implementing and maintaining an administrative reporting system, 5) developing tutorials and documentation for various user groups, 6) supporting course development and user training of CI solutions in conjunction with the principal investigators, 7) performing Linux system user administration and application support.
Required: A bachelor’s degree and at least three years of relevant employment experience, including web design, web application development and Linux system administration; excellent communication skills; experience with Linux, HTML5, Drupal, CSS, MySQL/PostgreSQL, PHP or other web language.
Preferred: Experience with LDAP, Linux security, MatLab, R and C programming.
