Description

As a Bioinformatic Scientist supporting NCI’s Cancer Genomics Cloud Resource ISB-CGC Cancer Gateway in the Cloud, you will work on various tools and datasets for cancer researchers and describe how these tools and data can be easily and effectively used in the Google cloud to perform groundbreaking, impactful cancer research. In this role, a typical day will include:

• Collaborating with NCI clients and cancer researchers worldwide to develop further understanding of cancer mechanisms, and develop cancer diagnostics, therapies, and treatments.
• Developing -omics and clinical pipelines/workflows and/or Jupyter notebooks based on rapidly developing technologies to allow ISB-CGC end users to optimize the use of NCI -omics, imaging, and clinical data in the Google Cloud Platform
• Writing examples, tutorials, and creating videos for the ISB-CGC documentation that demonstrates to end-users how to best use bioinformatics tools/pipelines on the Google Cloud as well as for tutorials on our ISB-CGC web-applications. Presenting the system to cancer researchers worldwide to increase use of the system
• Helping to expand available public datasets and assisting with the improvement of querying capabilities across multiple datasets
• Aiding researchers wanting to customize their own analysis to answer specific research questions
• Learning/ keeping up to-date with GA4GH and other worldwide -omics and personalized medicine initiatives
Your success will be measured through collaborative work as a research bioinformatician, working with the team to effectively support our current user base and expand datasets and tools to bring even more researchers to ISB-CGC and the NCI’s Cancer Research Data Commons.

What you’ll need:
• Minimally a BS (or equivalent) in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science, or related field and five years hands on experience
• Experience with implementing bioinformatics pipelines/workflows, Jupyter notebooks and R scripts in a research environment
• Proficiency with three of the following: SQL, bash scripting, R or Python programming
• Experience working in a Unix/Linux environment
• Prior experience interacting with bioinformaticians and computational biologists through documentation and tutorials
• Ability to obtain a Public Trust

Desired Qualifications:

• Experience with cloud development ecosystems – Google and / or AWS.
• Experience creating and using container technologies, such as Docker or Singularity
• Experience implementing parallel computation for bioinformatics pipelines
• Fluency with tools and methods for -omics data analysis (bwa, GATK, Picard, samtools, vcftools, RVTESTS, beagle, GenomicRanges, tools for RNAseq analysis, etc.)
• Cancer research experience
