St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a world-renowned institution that is recognized as one of the best places to work in the nation. As a premier center for research and treatment of childhood catastrophic diseases, we employ a diverse team of scientific and healthcare professionals dedicated to the promise of finding cures and saving children. The Comp Bio Department has a well-established track record in leading bioinformatics analyses for high-profile research investigations resulting in multiple, high impact publications in journals, such as New England Journal of Medicine, Nature, Nature Genetics, Nature Methods, JAMA and Cancer Cell. We provide an interactive teamwork environment, access to a state-of-art computational infrastructure, well-established analytical pipelines, and deep experience in analyzing, managing, visualizing and delivering superior-quality results for innovative and very competitive projects.
As a member of our team, you will develop databases and accompanying software used in big data bioinformatics analysis as part of an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers at the forefront of genomic research into catastrophic childhood disease. Under minimal supervision, you will participate and lead in developing and managing a one-of-its-kind database central to the institution’s precision medicine initiatives and housing the largest pediatric cancer datasets in the world. You will support researchers in the Department of Computational Biology by providing data management solutions for complex and varied scientific datasets, and you will generate reports and figures for scientific publications. You will participate in analysis of genomic data with a focus on next-generation sequence analysis. You will enhance database schemas and develops new APIs to support scientific research and web portal development.
