The Informatician will support a translational research group, the Center for Translational Lung Biology, with genetic data cleaning, analysis, and imputation related to several critical care phenotypes on populations of moderate size (1000 – 5000). Further, the individual will design and implement analyses of genetic and genomic data including, but not limited to, genotype array, gene expression array, microRNA, targeted proteomics, and next generation sequencing. Experience with high dimensional genetic data is preferred, along with expertise using varied analytic techniques (imputation, GWAS, Mendelian Randomization). Bioinformatic skills (dbGaP, functional annotation, gene set enrichment, pathway analyses) are likewise preferred. The individual will work collaboratively with the CTLB team on grant proposals, data presentations, and publications.
