Bioinformatics Scientist II
Details: The Bioinformatics Scientist II within the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics will apply his or her knowledge of bioinformatics algorithms and analysis platforms to consult with investigators in the Divisions of Cancer Pathobiology & Experimental Pathology on their projects, analyze data and align with biological systems, and to serve as a collaborative, and sometimes lead, investigator in academic output including assistance in experimental design and grant writing. We are seeking a scientist who has experience in analysis and interpretation of one or more high-dimensional data types including next-generation DNA sequencing, RNA-Seq, CHiP-Seq, DNA and expression arrays, proteomics, or any others. Prior experience in the field of cancer, cell biology, and/or immunobiology, while not required, is strongly preferred. This individual will work in a highly skilled, team-oriented environment applying knowledge of cellular, molecular, and computational biology to create novel methods and testable scientific hypotheses. Candidates should have a well-grounded understanding of the strengths and limitations of commonly used data generating platforms as they apply to experimental endpoints and will readily be able to set expectations and defend results through direct communication with principal investigators and their staff. An understanding of systems biology as represented by integrated pathway analyses is expected. This individual must be a functional coder in R, Perl, Python, Java, or other scripting/statistical language. Please note that those individuals who do not possess a strong knowledge of molecular, cellular, or systems biology should not apply.Apply for this job.
