Summary of Essential Job Duties:
Under close supervision, the Research Bioinformatician I performs general bioinformatics analysis and software support for genomics projects. The RBI will manage genomics data including loading and querying data from database system and public repositories and transform and merge multi-level genomic data into user-friendly formats, assist in development, test and maintenance of modular software pipelines, provide daily bioinformatics data analysis, preliminary interpretation of the data, and reports of the results for possible publications.
Specifically, you will be working in the Genomics core as part of an integrated team of wet lab and informatic scientists. Your main responsibility will be to manipulate large datasets from whole genome type scans, perform tests to determine biological significance, and visualize biologically meaningful data. This is a very dynamic position for instance, where you will use a variety of basic analysis tools to determine things like genetic linkage, gene expression profiles, and molecular classifiers from data generated from microarrays, qPCR data, and Next Gen Sequencing.
You will assist in specific advanced collaborations with the Core Directors collaborative lead research as well as help to translate developmental pipelines for filtering and analyzing these large datasets.
Summarizes data analyses results in the form suitable as the basis for the first draft of written reports, and makes preliminary interpretations of the data.
Manages data including loading and querying data from database systems, downloading genomic data from public repositories, and transforming data to the necessary formats.
Helps to identify, evaluate, and incorporate relevant algorithms and software pipelines by reviewing pertinent literatures in bioinformatics and computational biology.
