DESCRIPTION: Bioinformatician position is currently available in Dr. Bhasin Systems Biomedicine laboratory bhasinlab.org) at BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS MEDICAL CENTER / HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL, Boston MA. Bioinformatician will be responsible for the development and maintenance of workflows/algorithms for analysis of genomics, proteomics, next-generation sequencing and metabolomics data. He will also be responsible for developing solutions for integrated and systems biology analysis of multi-dimensional omics data. She or he must have strong technical skills while working independently on development or data analysis projects. Prior experience in handing and analysis of genome level data is extremely helpful.
To develop and maintain analysis pipelines for microarray, proteomics and next-generation sequencing data. • Apply sequence analysis methods, clustering algorithms, functional and statistical analysis methods on omics data. • To develop analytical workflows for identifying predictive biomarkers from genome level data using novel feature selection and classifier training algorithms. • Develop innovative solutions for integrated analysis multi-dimensional omics datasets including SNP Profiling, ChipSEQ, Transcriptome, Epigenome, and Proteome. • Manage genomics, proteomics and sequencing data analysis, visualization, interpretation, and presentation.
Qualifications: BS in computer science, computer engineering, bioinformatics or related discipline; advanced degree (MS, PhD) a strong plus. • Excellent programming skills and experience in C/ C++, Java, Perl, Python, SAS, MATLAB, and R. • The candidate should have 1-3 years experience in handing and analysis of genome level data. • Strong background in algorithms and statistics, data management and mining, and machine learning. • Extraordinary oral and written communication skills • Ability to work in a fast-paced and results-oriented environment Please send a CV, a brief description of previous research and the names of three references to the address below. mbhasin at bidmc.harvard.edu
