Job Responsibilities:

  • Perform robust data quality control and validation.
  • Develop expertise in various types of sequencing data analysis (e.g. RNA-seq, scRNS-seq, ChlP-seq, sequencing of long reads).
  • Work closely with bench scientists to understand and help accomplish their research goals.
  • Other duties as assigned.
  • Professional development: attends seminars, lectures and training courses to learn new computational biology skills and to remain up to date with the cancer genomics field. Learns new programming languages or techniques as necessary, as well as new data analysis software.
  • Systems support: provides support for the Molecular Pathology Lab. Performs first level troubleshooting of database and software related problems, including contacting the Help Desk, software vendors for more complex issues.
  • Support/consulting: works with the team to explain the services offered. Reviews the data with the team and explains the background and the analysis process. Performs custom analysis tailored to the users specific needs.

  • Data analysis: performs different types of data analysis relating to the genomics-based approaches utilized by the lab in an independent fashion. Works directly or indirectly with lab users to analyze biomedical data and address scientific problems with bioinformatics techniques and tools. Generates and retrieves primers based on specific project requirements. Performs quality analysis of the generated sequencing data and develops solutions for enhancing future performance. Runs and troubleshoots the pipeline for mutation detection and genomic consequence calculation. Presents and summarizes results of the analyses to the team members. Generates the mutation and coverage reports, by running our customized mutation detection pipeline. Manually reviews traces for validation. Performs gene expression data analyses and establishes and maintains gene expression data analysis pipeline.  

Minimum Qualifications:
To qualify you must have a PhD or Masters in Bioinformatics, System Biology, Computer Science or related field.

Experience: Knowledge of biology and understanding of key and complex biological concepts (genes, pathways, cancer and/or stem cells). Ability to work independently while collaborating and assisting the team in its common research goals. Attention to detail and ability to work on multiple projects is necessary. Experience in Unix/Linux systems including HPC environments. Scripting languages: Python (preferred) or Perl Statistical packages: R (preferred) or Matlab. 3+ years of experience with sequencing data (two of DNA-seq, RNA-seq and ChIP-seq). 3+ years of experience creating customized sequencing analysis pipelines.

Excellent communication skills with proficiency in written and oral English.

Qualified candidates must be able to effectively communicate with all levels of the organization.
