Are you passionate about collaborating with a team of clinicians and scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center?
The mission of the Center for Molecular Oncology (CMO) is to promote precision oncology through large-scale molecular profiling of tumors and using this data to identify correlations to clinical outcomes. This work informs the treatment strategies of oncologists at MSK, providing tangible benefits to patients with complex tumors. Scientists at the CMO collaborate with clinicians and researchers across MSK to understand their work and design sequencing experiments to provide novel insights. This enables labs to focus on their research areas and not have to duplicate critical skills and experience in sequencing and bioinformatics.
CMO Informatics is a team of analysts and engineers responsible for portable/modular bioinformatics infrastructures, data analysis workflows, sample-level quality controls, and reproducible research for investigators. This team is seeking a Bioinformatics Engineer to build portable tools and workflows for reproducible analyses, and constantly identify new opportunities for automation. The team also helps investigators analyze their own data via a number of computational tools developed at MSK.
