A bioinformaticist is sought to develop statistical models to predict medical outcomes and physical traits, make kinship inferences from DNA, and discover the genetic variants that inform such models via genomic data mining. Successful hires will join an interdisciplinary research group pursuing ambitious, long-term projects aimed at achieving major scientific advances in the fields of medicine and forensics.
In this position, scientists will validate and manage genomic datasets; statistically analyze phenotypic, genotypic, and environmental data; and create predictive models for both medical and forensic use. The Bioinformaticist is expected to also be capable of driving the identification and implementation of emerging technologies for improvement of available genetic information platforms and emerging statistical tools and methodologies. This position is also expected to provide support for computational biology and genomics experts towards development of computational tools such as data analysis pipelines. The scientist will assist with the development of new project ideas and subsequent writing of proposals to submit for funding. Finally, scientists in this position will support the company's drug development teams with the creation of genetically informed, personalized therapeutics.
