The New York Genome Center is looking for a highly motivated individual to join our rapidly expanding informatics division in the computational biology and genome analysis group. As a Bioinformatics Scientist you will be responsible for the analysis and interpretation of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. This work will be done as part of a team of Bioinformatics Scientists, Software Engineers and Analysts passionate about understanding the genetic basis of complex diseases and genetic commonalities in large cohorts of patients. Example projects include calling point mutations and structural variants in large exome and whole genome datasets, as well as integration of genomic, transcriptome and functional sequencing to provide a more complete interpretation of the functional consequences of mutations. This position will be centered on data interpretation. Publication of developed methods and scientific findings is encouraged.
Job duties will include, but are not limited to:
- Develop and apply innovative sequence data analysis approaches that will lead to the identification of underlying pathways/gene networks that contribute to the pathogenesis of complex diseases (such as oncology, autism, autoimmune disorders, etc.);
- Analyze sequencing data using established workflows and perform QC measures;
- Assist, collaborate and consult with internal/external researchers on analyses of NGS data.
