The University of Washington (UW) is proud to be one of the nation’s premier educational and research institutions. Our people are the most important asset in our pursuit of achieving excellence in education, research, and community service. Our staff not only enjoys outstanding benefits and professional growth opportunities, but also an environment noted for diversity, community involvement, intellectual excitement, artistic pursuits, and natural beauty.
The Department of Genome Sciences (GS) is part of the University of Washington School of Medicine (UW SoM) and is comprised of 27 labs addressing leading edge questions in biology and medicine by developing and applying genetic, genomic and computational approaches taking advantage of genomic information now available for a host of species. GS is making major contributions in the application of genome science to understand the fundamentals of biology and to improve human health and well-being.
Genome Sciences is a collaborative department supported by very different academic disciplines. We work with a multitude of Program Investigators (PIs) in departments both on the UW campus as well as worldwide. The department has gone through significant expansion since its beginning in 2001 with annual grant awards of $41.5M in FY12. The department has 47 training, teaching, and research faculty.
The High Throughput Genomics Center (HTGC) at the University of Washington is at the forefront of genomics and bioinformatics. The laboratory applies cutting edge technologies for massively parallel DNA sequencing to understand gene structure and regulation on a genome-wide scale, and supports hundreds of academic and industry investigators world-wide.
The HTGC seeks to expand our bioinformatics staff with a talented individual who will manage and coordinate analysis pipelines for high-throughput genomic data (DNA and RNA sequencing, chromatin, methylation, metagenomics, etc.). The job requires tracking and executing analysis requirements for multiple internal projects. The ability to maintain effective communication between co-workers and investigators/customers is a must.
