The Computational Biologist takes lab-generated data and creates computational models that allow

further manipulation and experimentation. By applying computational methods, the Computational Biologist enables rapid, incremental analysis required to process the large amount of data generated in a high throughput laboratory. Next generation sequencing technology is a particularly complex endeavor that requires computational analysis to provide quality, timely analysis with the volume of data

  • Understand the biological science behind the laboratory projects in order to develop accurate models and interpret outcomes appropriately
  • Collaborate with the research team, including statisticians, IT developers, and other bioinformaticians, to plan and execute computational applications
  • Develop analysis methods integrating information from high throughput platforms
  • Write reports and contribute to resulting research papers


  • Bachelor degree in computational biology, biostatistics, or related quantitative field; master's
  • Knowledge of current bioinformatics approaches and databases
  • Ability to apply mathematical modeling to biological data, as demonstrated through previous work or academic experience
  • Excellent programming skills
  • Strong understanding of statistics and quantitative data analysis, as demonstrated through previous work or academic experience
  • Excellent communication skills, demonstrating ability to understand objectives of research team and write explanations for research papers


The physical requirements and environmental conditions of this position consist primarily of:

  • Continuous mental and visual attention, requiring sustained attention and observation
  • Ability to work at a PC monitor for most of the work day


HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology is a non-profit facility with the mission to use biotechnology and basic biological research to make important discoveries, improve human health, stimulate economic development and inspire young people to seek careers in science. Located in Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, Alabama, one of the world's leading science and technology business parks, the four-story, 270,000 square foot building contains state-of-the-art laboratories for biological research and development in the areas of genomics, genetics and personalized medicine.


The Genomic Services Lab was established by Shawn Levy, Ph.D. upon his arrival in 2009 to the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology. Previously, Dr. Levy served as the Vanderbilt Microarray Shared Resources, growing the VMSR from a small microarray core facility to a world-renowned genomics center. Since Levy's arrival, the Genomic Services Lab has grown rapidly, providing genomic service offerings to institutes in Alabama and all over the world.
