    Bioinformatics Software Developer

    The Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is creating a future that integrates genomics into the everyday practice of pediatrics. Led by a team of internationally-renowned genomic medicine scientists, the IGM is housed in the campus’ newest research building, spanning ~25,000 square feet of laboratory and office space in a highly interactive setting.


    We’re looking for a candidate with experience in a software development role to join our Computational Solutions team. This team designs, implements and maintains the software solutions needed for genomic science. Utilizing the elasticity of the Cloud and innovative Big Data technologies, the team collaborates with IGM faculty and R&D teams to develop highly optimized state-of-the-art bioinformatics software solutions.


    You will have the opportunity to work on a highly collaborative team, developing novel software tools which have a direct impact on pediatric patient care. We are looking for a candidate with strong software development abilities who enjoys solving complex problems. Previous experience in bioinformatics or computational biology background is not required for this position (on the job training will be provided as needed).


    The moment you walk through our doors, you can feel it. When you meet one of our patient families, you believe it. And when you talk with anyone who works here, you want to be part of it, too. Welcome to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, where Passion Meets Purpose.
