The Bioinformatics Analyst Senior 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 new tools
c) custom analyses that do not use established tools.
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 datasets 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 Analyst will operate independently, when appropriate, and will also collaborate effectively with other Core analysts on a variety of tasks. Effective documentation of code and analysis methods, report preparation, and professional interaction with Core customers (pre- and post-analysis) are important elements of the Analyst’s duties.
