The Cancer Genomics Research (CGR) laboratory in Gaithersburg, MD, is a fast-paced, high-throughput organization dedicated to the support of molecular, genetic and epidemiologic studies for investigators at the National Cancer Institute's Division of Cancer Epidemiology & Genetics (DCEG).
We are seeking a highly motivated bioinformatician to join the bioinformatics operations team at CGR and provide dedicated support to the Biostatistics Branch (BB) of DCEG. The mission of the BB in NCI's DCEG is to contribute to the understanding of etiology of cancers and means of their prevention by development and application of quantitative methods. Branch investigators are increasingly involved in design and analysis of high throughput studies using various types of “–omics” technologies such as array- and sequence-based genome-wide association studies, studies of tumor characteristics using integrated genomic data analysis and molecular epidemiologic studies based on novel metabolomic and microbiomic assays. The successful applicant will provide bioinformatics support to investigators in DCEG's Biostatistics Branch, including the following activities: Accessing, extracting and preparing data for analysis; Developing and maintaining bioinformatics pipelines; Organizing results into clear presentations and concise summaries of work, in formats useful for scientific interpretation; Harmonizing and maintaining diverse data with associated metadata; Maintaining experience with state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools and data repositories.
