The Bioinformatics Research Associate is part of the Creative Data Solutions (CDS) Shared Resource at Vanderbilt University and is a key individual contributor responsible for performing bioinformatics analyses of genomic data sets, developing and implementing (genetic and other) statistical models, and contributing to research studies. This position requires that the ideal candidate will have experience in analyzing large-scale genomic data, including next-generation sequencing data, and a strong understanding of statistical analysis methods including data processing of array- and NGS-based data, whole exome sequencing and whole genome sequencing, imputation, variant (SNV, indels, structural variants, CNV, etc) calling/filtering/annotation, GWAS, etc. The candidate should be able to work independently and as part of a team, with excellent communication and problem-solving skills. Reporting directly to the Director of CDS, the Bioinformatics Research Associate will interact with a multitude of investigators throughout the Vanderbilt community on several projects at any one time.
Creative Data Solutions (CDS), a Vanderbilt University Shared Resource, provides informatics and bioinformatics services to investigators in the fields of academic and clinical research, with an emphasis on life sciences. CDS blends modern data science approaches with robust software and database engineering to provide practical solutions to problems and challenges faced by research investigators in a timely and cost-effective fashion.
