We have an opening for a post-baccalaureate bioinformatics trainee in the Laboratory of Cellular and Developmental Biology, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. This is a one year appointment, starting as soon as May 2017, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.
We are looking for a recent graduate (bachelors or masters) proficient in Python or R who is willing to learn about cutting-edge biology to make an entry into bioinformatics and biomedical research and provides an opportunity to spend one or two years performing full-time research at the NIH.
The candidate will be embedded in the laboratory, working alongside and being trained by experienced bioinformatics scientists. The candidate will assist with analysis of high-throughput genomics data such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and long-range interaction assays. The candidate will also help provide general computational support to a group of 5 labs working on the regulation of gene expression during development. There are substantial opportunities for custom or independent projects depending on the candidate's skill set and interests, as well as collaboration with PIs and post-docs.
