We seek an energetic and experienced bioinformatics expert to lead a new Bioinformatics Core Facility located in the Division of Intramural Research (DIR), National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), NIH in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The Core Director and his/her personnel will work with NHLBI DIR Principal Investigators to convert information to knowledge in projects utilizing next generation DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, and metabolomics approaches. The DIR has two very active large-scale data generation core facilities, viz. the NHLBI DNA Sequencing Core and the NHLBI Proteomics Core, and the incumbent will be expected to interact with their respective Directors to assure seamless data transfer. NHLBI DIR investigators are engaged in a broad array of investigations in both basic and translational arenas, creating a nearly continuous stream of interesting and diverse bioinformatics needs, many requiring development of novel bioinformatics approaches. The incumbent will supervise the Core staff, manage the Core budget, oversee training of Core users, and will interact with the DIR’s Scientific Information Officer to sustain a state-of-the-art computational infrastructure.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. (or equivalent) and have significant experience in many aspects of bioinformatics documented by citable publications. Experience with machine learning, cross platform data integration, and Bayesian statistics are desirable. Excellent interpersonal skills are a requirement. Salary and appointment will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. More detailed information about the NHLBI DIR may be found at http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/research/intramural/.
Applicants should submit the following as a single PDF file: cover letter highlighting key qualifications, current curriculum vitae with complete bibliography, contact information of four individuals recommended to provide letters of reference, a one-page summary of applicant’s Philosophy of Core Facility Operation, a one-page Statement of Research Interests and three publications that best epitomize the relevant skills of the applicant. Applicants may be US citizens, resident aliens or non-resident aliens with or eligible for a valid employment visa. Initial application review will be October 1, 2015 but the advertisement will remain open until the position is filled. Applications should be sent by email to Dan Fogarty, Section Chief, NHLBI: firstname.lastname@example.org
