RMA of New Jersey ("RMANJ") is a multi-physician practice and research institute associated with Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, where our physicians and senior scientists hold academic appointments. Our research specializes in reproductive medicine. We have state-of-the-art clinical and laboratory facilities, as well as a genomics and genetic research division dedicated to improving reproductive technologies and the quality of patient care. Research at RMANJ spans the clinical, translational and basic science categories, and use of recently released technologies in next-gen sequencing, PCR, and microarray provide unparalleled opportunities for important discoveries and contributions to the field of human reproductive health.
We are seeking an entry level to experienced Bioinformatics Analyst to work under the Director of Bioinformatics, along with our talented, interdisciplinary team of biomedical scientists, information technologists, physicians, and other clinical staff.
An ideal candidate will have a Masters degree in computer science, bioinformatics, life sciences, or related fields, plus demonstrated experience in bioinformatics or computer science projects. The right candidate will have some previous experience in the management and analysis of high-dimensional biological data.
We absolutely require a demonstrated proficiency in any of the languages C, Java, Perl, or Python, as well as a working knowledge of SQL and relational databases. Knowledge of the R programming language and at least one course in college-level statistics is desired. Excellent organizational and interpersonal skills are required. Only qualified candidates meeting the required skills and competencies will be considered.
The bioinformatics effort at RMANJ is focused on the analysis of genomic and genetic data sets as well as basic research into reproductive health. We have designed and implemented our own Python-based laboratory management systems for molecular genetics testing data that are designed to accelerate translational and epidemiological research by easily linking molecular laboratory results to patient clinical outcomes. Current projects in bioinformatics include assisting in the development of clinical markers of fertility and reproductive health, the molecular epidemiology of infertility, development of automated methods and software to support large-scale bioinformatics analysis, research into genetic components of reproductive success, proteomics analysis, and computational biology and bioinformatics support. Typically, most projects involve biological data modeling and analysis, automated process/pipeline building, database development, data management & maintenance, statistical analysis, software development & implementation, and computational support for translational medicine research in reproductive health.
RMANJ offers a stimulating and supportive work environment committed to research and scholarly publications. We offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefit package.
RMANJ is a private company subject to Visa restrictions and caps; therefore, we can only consider applications from individuals authorized to work in the United States for this immediate opening. EOE
