I am a research support programmer in the College of Literature, Science and The Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan, and we are adding a programmer to the Advocacy and Research Support team.
The official posting is: http://careers.umich.edu/job_detail/142167/research_support_...
We are a small team (currently 3) that handles any programming job that a lab in our college can’t handle internally. We do a lot of work in MATLAB, LabView, and C. Some examples of my recent projects are:
- Write an iPad app and database backend to allow users to easily input data into a MySQL database while assembling small robots in a cleanroom.
- Write a genetic algorithm program in MATLAB to process protein crystallography data.
- Fix a Java/PHP/SQLite webpage that someone wrote a few years ago and is now crashing.
- Add an Arduino controlled servo to an existing Script used to collect data with an automated microscope.
- Build a template project so that archieology students can easily add their artwork to a HoloLens program and share/visualize the sites they are studying.
If you have any questions you are welcome to email me, but you should apply directly via the official post. The pay is reasonable for the area, and we have a nice, low-stress work environment. The projects vary greatly, and you will have the opportunity to work on large and small projects in a variety of languages. We are putting an emphasis on candidates that have some lab/research work. A CS Degree is not required. I am a mechanical engineer by schooling and I fit in well.
