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 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).

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.

M.S. with two or more years’ post M.S. work experience or Ph.D. in bioinformatics or a related area; direct experience or equivalent skills to design experiments and analyze data from studies focused on: RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, RAD-Seq, metagenomics, genome assembly, variant detection, and/or phylogenetics. Proficiency in one or more scripting languages (Perl or Python) as well as fluency in Unix and comfort in high performance computing environments is expected. Excellent project management and organization skills required.

Solid foundation in statistics as well as software development is desired. Expertise in R/Bioconductor is desired.
