The Human Genome Sequencing Center (HGSC) at Baylor College of Medicine is seeking to recruit a managerial level person to work in the Library Construction group for the HGSC. This position will provide a high level technical expertise to the group and also oversee and co-ordinate activities of the sequence capture and SNP genotyping and CNV microarray production activities.
The HGSC was founded in 1996 under the leadership of Dr. Richard Gibbs and is a world leader in genomics. The fundamental interests of the HGSC are in advancing biology and genetics by improved genome technologies. As one of the three large-scale sequencing centers funded by the National Institutes of Health, the HGSC provides a unique opportunity to work on the cutting edge of genomic science in a state of the art institution.
The Library Construction group is responsible for preparation of samples for sequencing across multiple NextGen sequencing platforms and is directed by a faculty level senior manager who co-ordinates the group’s activities in working with the teams leads in the group. The NextGen Sequencing Production Manager will work with the senior manager and provide a high level technical expertise to the group and at the same time, will directly oversee and co-ordinate activities of 8-10 employees in the capture and SNP genotyping and CNV microarray group’s production activities.
Applicants should have significant experience in general molecular biology techniques, NextGen sequencing, array based SNP genotyping technologies and automation. Trouble shooting and problem solving skills will also be required as well as the ability to analyze, organize communicate and present data effectively. Data analysis and bioinformatics skills are also preferred, but not essential. This position will also need to interact with other key academic and industry collaborators to undertake new projects and implement new technologies within the Center.
