Job Summary

The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is seeking two experienced Software Developer’s to join PSC’s Public Health Applications group.  This is a dynamic opportunity for someone who thrives in an interesting and challenging work environment.

PSC’s Public Health Applications group empowers public health decision-making to mitigate a wide range of global public health threats including influenza, malaria, obesity, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The diverse team includes scientists, modelers, software developers, and high-performance computing (HPC) specialists. The Public Health Applications Group works closely PSC’s other science and technology groups, particularly Artificial Intelligence and Big Data, Advanced Systems, and User Support for Scientific Applications.

You will contribute to public health modeling, translating modeling tools to new and broader audiences for national and international public health decision support.  You will also work collaboratively to develop large-scale simulation software for cutting-edge computational hardware, develop data-intensive analyses and visualizations, and couple sophisticated software tools with accessible, user-focused services and interfaces. Your work will entail publishing, presenting, and leading or contributing to attracting future funding.
