The New York Genome Center is looking for a highly motivated, results-driven individual to join the computational biology and genome analysis group within the informatics division. As a Bioinformatics Scientist, Cancer interpretation, you will be responsible for the analysis and interpretation of results from the Cancer genomics pipelines (somatic SNV and SV, integrated with RNA-Seq, epigenomics or other sequencing experiments applied to oncology). The job requires familiarity with all parts of the process from sequencing to calling and understanding somatic variation, as well as a deep knowledge of oncology, cancer pathways and an ability to connect genomics to biological and clinical expertise, through literature, knowledgebase and personal experience. We are seeking an individual who is passionate about understanding and modeling human genetic variation and how it can be used to generate clinically actionable results. Publication of developed methods and scientific findings is encouraged.
Job duties will include:
- Develop, apply and support innovative approaches for data analysis, modeling and prediction;
- Implement methods for somatic variant prioritization, annotation and interpretation;
- Plan, organize and support external collaborative initiatives;
- Assist, collaborate, and consult with internal/external researchers on analyses of NGS data.
