The Department of Radiology at Stanford University is seeking a Software Developer to join its Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics at Stanford (IBIIS) section. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanfords mission is to educate future leaders and to promote interdisciplinary, world-class research. IBIIS contains several research labs that work together on various projects that use computational methods to leverage the information in radiology images to enable biomedical discovery and to guide physicians in personalized care. Our goal is to make the content in images computable and to electronically correlate images with other clinical data such as pathology and molecular data.
The Software Developer will be part of a team developing a cutting-edge open-source web-based software to extract image features from biomedical images as part of a large NIH-funded project. This exciting work will become part of a national infrastructure supporting biomedical research and allowing the medical research community to transform medical care by discovering highly specific indicators of disease in medical images.
The successful candidate will thrive in a stimulating collaborative academic research environment working with academic collaborators and users to understand the task requirements and to design, develop, and document the programs features, maintaining the application, and providing limited technical support for the software. Under the direction of the Principal Investigators, the Software Developer will execute all programming tasks, including programming, analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, modifying, and maintaining research software.
Core Duties: Assess user needs and requirements. Design and develop applications that may involve sophisticated data manipulation. Maintain and update existing programs. Troubleshoot and solve technical problems. Create programs to meet reporting and analysis needs. Design and implement user and operations training programs. Document changes in software for end users. Follow team software development methodology. Serve as technical resource with respect to applications.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains d...edicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
