Stanford University is seeking a Life Science Research Professional 1 to analyze next generation sequencing data from a wide range of studies, including DNA sequencing for somatic mutations and epigenetic changes, single-cell and bulk RNA sequencing, as well as high dimensional imaging data.
About the Department of Pathology
Comprised of extraordinary faculty and staff, our mission is to improve the diagnosis, treatment and basic understanding of human disease. We accomplish this through our clinical services, research, and training the future leaders in pathology and related fields. A major focus of clinical research in the Department continues to be the correlation of patient outcome and treatment response with the surgical pathologic diagnosis of human cancers. Everything we do is to provide the highest quality of pathology diagnostic services to the patients for whom we passionately care.
An LSRP position is available in the Jaiswal group in the Departments of Pathology at Stanford University. Our group studies aging-associated mutations in hematopoietic cells that contribute to morbidity and mortality in the elderly using a variety of approaches. We utilize human genetics, mouse models, engineered cell lines, single-cell methods, and CRISPR screens to study clonal hematopoiesis. We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated individual who is highly organized and who possesses the social skills to interact with a wide range of clinical and scientific staff. The LSRP will be involved in defined research projects and will be responsible for independently analyzing next generation sequencing and high dimensional imaging data.
We welcome candidates who aspire to graduate/medical school. Ideally, they will be looking to further their career by learning and adopting new research skill-sets, particularly in the analysis of next generation sequencing and high dimensional imaging data. A growth mindset and a willingness to take on challenging learning opportunities will be sought out traits.
In addition to comparable research compensations, candidates will have the opportunity to develop their C.V. or resume through research publications and presentations at conferences.
Apply the theories and methods of a life science discipline to interpret and perform analyses of experiment results; offer suggestions regarding modifications to procedures and protocols in collaboration with senior researcher.
Review literature on an ongoing basis to remain current with new procedures and apply learnings to related research.
Contribute to publication of findings as needed. Participate in the preparation of written documents, including procedures, presentations, and proposals.
Assist with orientation and training of new staff or students in the analysis of next generation sequencing and high dimensional imaging.
Prior training or degree in computer science, genomics, bioinformatics, or a related field. Candidate should have familiarity with basic concepts of next generation sequencing and must be proficient enough in programming and the use of Linux to work independently and assist others. Experience with R is a strong plus, as is experience with processing next generation sequencing data. Knowledge of Python, image processing, and a basic understanding of statistics and applied math is also valued.
Education & Experience (REQUIRED):
Bachelor's degree in related scientific field.
Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (REQUIRED):
General understanding of scientific principles. Demonstrated performance to use knowledge and skills when needed.
Demonstrated ability to apply theoretical knowledge of science principals to problem solve work.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 12000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
