The CMO is one of several Collaborative Research Centers at MSKCC that help researchers translate their work into real benefits for cancer patients and clinicians. To this end, we interface with investigators across MSKCC, understand their research/clinical questions, and design sequencing experiments to help answer them. This ensures that core skills and experience in sequencing/bioinformatics don't need to be duplicated within each investigator's lab. Conversely, to avoid creating a dependency on us, our tools/pipelines are open-sourced on GitHub [1,2,3].
Our group within the CMO (Platform Informatics) is a nimble team of scientists and engineers responsible for the automated workflow from sample tracking, sequencing and data processing, to downstream analyses and publication-ready results. We're seeking to fill two positions, a Bioinformatics Engineer responsible for pipeline framework design/development, and a Computational Biologist responsible for extending our tools/pipelines to satisfy research/clinical goals.
