The University of Connecticut seeks a Bioinformatics Scientist to serve faculty, researchers, and graduate students on the main UConn campus and the UCHC within the Center for Genome Innovation housed in the cross-campus Institute for Systems Genomics isg.uconn.edu). We are seeking applications from dynamic, motivated individuals interested in providing computational biology and statistical expertise to help develop and analyze a variety of projects. The Bioinformatics Scientist will work closely with members of the Center for Genome Innovation (sequencing core facility) to support investigators as they design their experiments, particularly those that involve next-generation sequencing data. The user base of the CGI is broad, and the successful candidate can expect to work on a diverse array of problems in a range of systems (both model and non-model organisms).
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
The successful candidate will provide consultation to faculty, researchers, and graduate students on the use of specific computing tools for solving a broad range of problems in biology, interface with biologists and computer scientists, and maintain web and tutorial resources. They will have an excellent command of verbal and written communication to facilitate the dissemination of results through presentations, reports, and scientific publications. They will stay informed on the latest software tools and test these for possible integration into existing analysis pipelines.
Candidates with commensurate experience will be considered at the more advanced Academic Assistant 3 classification. This is a non-tenure track, annual 11-month appointment. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications.
