Job Description

We are looking for energetic intelligent bioinformaticist to analyze next generation sequencing data. We are a cancer-genetics lab who will use next generation sequencing to identify gene mutations to identify cancer-promoting mutations in various skin cancers. We will then perform functional experiments with RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, and Hi-C to elucidate how these mutations contribute to cancer. We are looking for informaticists who are interested in learning pipelines and analyzing TCGA-like datasets.

Requirements

familiarity with biostatistics, python, UNIX, and R
