Job Title Bioinformatics Analyst

Laboratory / Department Bioinformatics Resource Center

Department Description

The Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC) provides bioinformatics analysis, experimental design consultation, software infrastructure, and training to the scientific community at Rockefeller University. With specific expertise in the processing and analysis of high-throughput genomic sequencing data, and in collaboration with both wet and dry lab biologists, the BRC aims to support and accelerate the diverse and cutting-edge research conducted at the university through the creation of analytical pipelines; the analysis of biological data via direct collaborations; and the training of Rockefeller's faculty, students, and scientific staff.

Detailed Description

The Bioinformatics Analyst will work within the Bioinformatics Resource Center to provide analysis support to research groups and to establish the bioinformatics infrastructure and training necessary to promote high-quality computational biology research within the university. The Bioinformatics Analyst will support the diverse range of biological data generated by research groups at The Rockefeller University by communicating bioinformatics analysis to students, postdoctoral trainees, research scientists, and principal investigators; always ensuring the validity and reliability of data and methods; and maintaining accurate and complete records of analysis projects. Will identify and develop suitable techniques for the analysis and visualization of data, build and maintain the associated computational resources (software packages, databases, or web-based analysis and visualization tools), and maintain all codes and programs used for analysis and tool development with suitable source control. The Bioinformatics Analyst will assist in the administration of the Bioinformatics facility's computational infrastructure, identify and implement present and upcoming infrastructure requirements for the Bioinformatics team, and develop and assist in bioinformatics training for staff and students at The Rockefeller University.

Job Requirements

Ph.D. in computational biology, bioinformatics, or biological sciences required; educational emphasis in epigenetics preferred. Advanced training at the postdoctoral level or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience preferred. Must be knowledgeable in molecular biology and genomics and have previous experience with bioinformatics techniques and tools used in these fields. Experience developing R and Bioconductor packages in the analysis of biological data required. Proficiency in the acquisition and analysis of high throughput sequencing data required and demonstrated high level of skill in at least one general programming language (Python, Java, or C++) necessary. Proven ability in software development and the collaborative use of source control is a plus. Previous experience training biologists and bioinformaticians in the use of bioinformatics tools, analyzing epigenetics data from high sequencing experiments, and contributing to peer-reviewed publications is desirable. Experience working with small RNAs and analysis of RNA-binding proteins and proficiency in web programming (Django, JavaScript) preferred.
