I am delighted to announce TWO PhD-level #bioinformatics openings on my team!
Do you get up-in-arms about ancestry inference? Does the loss of uncertainty when converting imputed probabilities to genotypes keep you up at night? Do you have strong opinions about the minimum size of a dataset that warrants running linear mixed models? Well, you might be the #GWAS expert we are looking for! https://leidosbiomed.csod.com/ats/careersite/jobdetails.aspx?site=4&c=leidosbiomed&id=1355
Do you host vigorous debates over the merits of virtual environment management vs. containerization? Do you proselytize to your friends about #reproducibility in bioinformatics as a moral imperative? Have you typed “Snakemake” so often that it no longer autocorrects to “snakelike”? Then you’ll fit right in building NGS pipelines on my team! https://leidosbiomed.csod.com/ats/careersite/jobdetails.aspx?site=4&c=leidosbiomed&id=1452
While I am looking for specific experience for these roles, we are focused on personal growth and career development - bring your own skills, and learn some more! We have opportunities to get your hands dirty with GWAS and meta-analysis, WES/WGS, RNA-seq, metagenomics, structural variation, CNVs, mosaicism, and more, across a wide variety of unique and rich datasets. We emphasize reproducible, tested, production-scale pipeline development both on-prem and in the cloud, and we use those pipelines to support responsible science and accurate interpretation of results.
