Software Developer 1
The Department of Biomedical Data Science (DBDS) is recruiting a Software Developer to support key production projects in the Department of Radiology and the Stanford Cancer Institute (SCI). DBDS was started in order to create an integrated field of biomedical data science as well as provide and cultivate an intellectual home for collaborative research. As a basic science department, DBDS is devoted to the development of novel computational and statistical methods for acquiring, representing, storing, and analyzing biological and clinical data at all scales. Our work has a real-world impact on patient care and scientific advancement through the expansion of cutting edge software technologies and we take pride in contributing to this work.
The Software Developer will design, build and implement robust and innovative web-based applications for Cancer informatics and Radiology research including a system to mine clinical and imaging data to personalize patient care. Experience with SQL, relational databases and web application frameworks is expected. If you would like to be part of a multidisciplinary team and contribute to work that will transform detection, diagnosis, treatment and prevention discoveries into the most advanced patient care available, then you should consider joining our team.
