The University of California, San Francisco is seeking a person to serve as Bioinformatics Programmer for the Clinical Cancer Genomics Laboratory. In this role, this individual will be part of a team responsible for design, construction, and maintenance of a genomic analysis pipeline for clinical cancer samples that communicates with sequencing core services, laboratory information management systems and clinical reporting software.
Under the general direction of the Associate Director of Informatics for the Clinical Cancer Genomics Laboratory, the Bioinformatics Programmer will design and develop new components for our internally developed cloud-based sequence analysis pipeline to support new and enhanced clinical testing. Features slated for development include gene fusion detection via RNAseq, detection of viral sequences, and detection of mutational signatures. Other new software developed will provide support for automating aspects of sample analysis and error reporting and integration with other clinical systems. Additional responsibilities will include supporting the development of target capture panels and test validation as well as quarterly data analysis to improve QC and support clinical annotation.
