Job Summary

The University of Wisconsin Biotechnology Center (UWBC) and the Center for Genomic Science Innovation (CGSI) are committed to maximizing the benefits of biotechnology research within the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Wisconsin System, State of Wisconsin, and the nation. The Centers facilitate high quality, comprehensive, multidisciplinary research and supports, coordinates, disseminates, and advances biotechnology.

The UWBC is a large and complex organization containing 13 sub-units and the CGSI, and administers the Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine (CIBM) graduate training program and the Genomic Sciences Training Program (GSTP). The Center has a variety of funding sources; federal and non-federal grants and awards, and seven fee-for-service revenue generated 136 accounts.

UWBC is a synergistic blend of core service facilities, research, and outreach activities. The Bioinformatics Resource Center (BRC), one of UWBC core facilities, is seeking to add a highly self-motivated individual to our team. This individual will be responsible for working with research personnel to implement bioinformatics and statistical methods for a myriad of project types. This will involve scripting, exploration of parameter selections, summarizing large data in tabular and graphical formats, and providing detailed documentation of all methods used. This individual will work closely with a collaborative group to develop robust workflows that can be efficiently applied to similar projects. Many aspects of these analyses are computationally intensive requiring high-throughout infrastructure available at the BRC.
