The Bioinformatics Analyst will work in a collaborative team environment to provide professional analysis services to Core customers. Bioinformatics is a highly dynamic field and the work will involve a) operation of well-developed and automated tools, b) testing, improvement, and implementation of tools, and c) custom analyses that require novel algorithm/tool development and integration. The Analyst will work closely with the UM DNA Sequencing Core to assess new technologies and their potential impacts on data analysis routines. Based on close attention to detail and critical thinking, the Analyst will identify potential anomalies in input data and/or results and work to resolve any quality issues. The Analyst will prepare professional reports for Core customers to communicate analysis results. The Analyst will continually update his/her knowledge and skills in the field to remain at the forefront of bioinformatics research. The candidate will operate independently, when appropriate, and will collaborate effectively with other Core analysts and the project manager on a variety of tasks. Effective documentation of code and analysis methods, report preparation, and professional interaction with core customers (before, during, and after analysis) are important elements of the Analyst’s duties.
