The Rockefeller University seeks a Bioinformatics Specialist (Salary Range: $60K - $80K) to join Laboratory of Molecular Biology. Our lab seeks a highly motivated Bioinformatics Specialist to work on a project that studies Huntington's disease; our goal being the identification of novel strategies that will slow the progression of the disease. The person who will join our team will be responsible for large-scale genomic/transcriptomic data management and will work with another bioinformatics professional, staff programmer and experimental biologists to maximize impact. The candidate will review as well as develop new code to continuously improve computational pipelines such as those used to analyze RNAseq, ChIP-Seq and bisulfite/ oxidative bisulfite sequencing (BS/oxBSseq) data.
Bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics, Genomics or ability to demonstrate experience and skills in Computational Biology is required. Must be highly creative and motivated, and have a solid bioinformatics background, including familiarity with open-source bioinformatics tools/ databases, next generation sequence alignment for RNAseq, ATACseq, BSseq and oxBSseq experiments, single-cell RNAseq, clustering, differential expression analysis, quality assurance processes, statistical analysis, and methods for data visualization. As this job is both a service position and an opportunity to develop new approaches for data analysis, fluency in R/python and Unix is mandatory. The opportunity to explore new technologies/ platforms, such as NanoString GeoMx or 10X Visium spatial transcriptomics, to keep pace with rapid advances in sequencing technology will be available.
We offer an excellent benefits package, tuition reimbursement and a competitive salary. The Rockefeller University is located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, on a 15-acre campus, along the East River (www.rockefeller.edu/views.php).
