We are searching for talented and highly motivated Computational Biologists to join our team.The candidate will have a masters degree in bioinformatics, and will be knowledgeable of nextgeneration sequencing methods and data science analytical approaches. The computationalbiologist will be working closely with computational, clinical and research investigators to analyzenext generation sequencing data (wholegenome, targeted sequencing, RNA, single cell) derivedfrom patients tumors.
Our research supports correlative science research to study how the genetic profiles of patientstumors define disease at presentation, response to therapy and disease progression. Theseanalyses are guiding treatment decisions and the enrollment of patients onto clinical trials of noveltargeted therapies. The candidate will be a become a key contributor to strategic researchinitiatives in the center, and those efforts will have direct impacts on patient care.
What you'll do:
Interface with collaborators to define experimental research aims and deliverables. Process, analyze, and interpret next-generation sequencing data. Monitor and evaluate analytical aspects of new and emerging technologies. Deliver well annotated code and analysis. Write scientific reports, prepare research results for publication. Present scientific and technical data in research seminars and if desired conferences. Ability to work independently in a multidisciplinary, fast-paced, and results-oriented environment.
Who you are: Masters in bioinformatics, computational biology or related discipline. 1-2 years data science experience would be desirable. Experience with next-generation sequencing platforms (RNA-seq, Exome, Panel Sequencing, WGS) , related analytical algorithms and analysis toolkits Proficient in R and Python Experience in Bioinformatics software development IT process management, version control, and good coding practices Experience with parallelized computing
