Opportunity: FlyBase InterMine/BioMart developer @ Indiana University--Bloomington, IN (US)
FlyBase (http://flybase.org/) is an online database of Drosophila genes and genomes.

FlyBase is looking for a qualified software engineer to undertake a project to deploy the InterMine and BioMart data management systems. The developer will be responsible for the web and database aspects of these technologies, which will be hosted at the Indiana University FlyBase site in Bloomington, IN. This includes the initial setup and configuration of these two systems, setting up and automating update cycles in sync with the existing FlyBase release cycle, evaluating the capabilities of each, aiding in the integration of these services with existing FlyBase reports and tools, and coordinating these efforts with other model organism databases (MODs). Loading and preprocessing of data for these systems will be performed at the Harvard University FlyBase site so close coordination with developers there will also be required.

-- Perl programming
-- Java programming (knowledge of JSP a plus)
