Staff Scientist


We seek a motivated and talented bioinformatician who wants to join our group to work on human long-read applications to explore Structural Variations, Single Nucleotide, and other changes in a large population cohort. Over the next year we will produce a significant collection of long-reads across individuals of the USA population with the goal to deepen our understanding of mutations ranging from small (SNPs) to large (Structural Variations) and the impact of these mutations. In addition, we want to further the development of key software (e.g. Sniffles) and annotation resources. This will help us to better understand the mechanisms that drive mutations and their implications.


Minimum Qualifications Doctoral Degree. Experience may not be substituted in lieu of degree. Three years of post doctoral research experience. Preferred Qualifications Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or related fields with a dissertation related to Computational Biology. Strong programming (Python/Perl/C++) and analytical skills, including experience with next- or Third-generation sequencing data. Expertise in working with the Linux/Unix command line (bash, make, software management and versioning via GitHub). Proficiency in handling large-scale scientific data sets and cluster computing environments (SGE/Slurm). Ability to independently develop reports and manuscript
