The Center for Translational and Basic Research (CTBR), a scientific research center located on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan is seeking a highly motivated full-time Bioinformatics Engineer with diverse skill sets. Applications involve setting up and maintaining next-generation sequencing data pipelines, provide bioinformatics analysis services to faculty across departments, and participate in various research projects involving large-scale genomic datasets. The position also provides the opportunity to work on cutting-edge bioinformatics and cloud computing software development projects, and use of a private high-performance cluster as part of the research performed in the Bioinformatics Core.
Other Duties: Process, quantify and assess quality of biological samples and prepare the samples for sequencing. Retrieve and organize results following sequencing experiment completion, and perform data analysis using bioinformatics data analysis workflows currently available in the lab, in addition to developing new data workflows. As part of the duties for the position, the candidate will prepare posters and manuscripts for scientific conferences or peer-reviewed journals, in addition to mentoring more junior members of the lab on the use of sequencing and bioinformatics technologies.
Work closely with the other Bioinformatics Core members in maintaining the genomic data analysis resources, including keeping the software, databases, genome indexes and operating systems up to date. Help in preparing posters and presentations for scientific meetings.
