The Infectious Disease Dynamics group in the Department of Epidemiology is seeking to hire a Scientific Programmer for the Sero analytics Hub project, where computational approaches to integrated, multipath Ogen serological surveillance will be further developed, optimized, and disseminated globally. Sero analytics, the practice of collecting and analyzing antibody data in individuals and populations, has emerged as a potentially efficient and impactful tool for informing disease prevention and control programs. The overarching objective of this project is to produce a centralized resource explicitly focused on how data derived from integrated Sero surveillance systems can be used and appropriately interpreted across pathogens and settings.
Specific Duties & Responsibilities
Productionize a generalizable, flexible Sero analytics pipeline to improve our ability to synthesize bioinformatics data, streamline analyses of multipath Ogen Luminex MBA data, and obtain epidemiological insights about target populations.
This role will also involve the development of userfriendly R packages based on these tools, and the maintenance of an existing website for the Seroanalytics Hub where the developed materials can be easily accessed by the broader community.
One-year related experience.
Additional related experience may substitute for required education, to the extent permitted by the JHU equivalency formula.
R and R markdown programing mastery preferred.
Experience in database software and web development helpful.
Experience working with bioinformatics and/or a considerable understanding of biology and/or immunology preferred.
