This position of bioinformatics faculty with a primary appointment in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (DEB) at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) School of Medicine, will have overall responsibility for strengthening our collaborative research and directing a competitive bioinformatics service program. The candidate will apply bioinformatics techniques to analyze data from next-generation sequencing, microarrays and other high-throughput profiling technologies to gain insights into the biology of diverse organisms with an emphasis on biomedical research. Candidate will also manage the analytical service component of our next-generation sequencing facility. The bioinformatics faculty will promote the development of interdisciplinary bioinformatics research in translational, clinical and community settings, and provide oversight and guidance to research staff and post-graduate student to conduct independent research.
The successful candidate will join an energetic team of researchers in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute (GCCRI). The interdisciplinary environment of DEB and GCCRI is ideal for quantitative science, statistical, and bioinformatics advances for an early career research faculty. GCCRI is part of the Cancer Therapy and Research Center, an NCI-designated Cancer Center at South Texas that facilitates interdisciplinary research and breakthrough discoveries to advance human health. The next-generation sequencing facility and computational research facility at GCCRI has become a hub of collaborative research at UTHSCSA.
