Research Bioinformatician I

Cedars-Sinai
Los Angeles, CA 90006
Job Posting: Cedars Sinais Biomedical Sciences is looking for a Research Bioinformatician to join the Genomics Core. Under close supervision, the Research Bioinformatician I perform general bioinformatics analysis and software support for genomics projects. The RBI will manage genomic data including loading and querying data from database system and public repositories and transform and merge multi-level genomic data into user friendly formats, assists 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, this position will be working in the Genomics core as a part of an integrated team of wet lab and informatic scientists. The 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 variety of basic analysis tools to determine things will be used, like genetic linkage, gene expression profiles, and molecular classifiers from data generated from microarrays, qPCR data, and Next Gen Sequencing. The position is expected to 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. The position 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 literature in bioinformatics and computational biology. Essential Job Duties and Skills:

Must have the ability to completely define an analytical approach for defined scientific questions.

The ability to interact with outside customers and/or functional peer groups.

Must have outstanding oral and written communication skills.

Ability to manage multiple assignments.

Strong ability to act in a consultative manner with investigators on data analysis; and be able to work independently, manage priorities, and accurately produce results in a timely manner.

Leads in the development of analytical pipelines for biological data. Leads in the development of innovative data analysis capabilities.

Strong ability to act in a consultative manner with investigators on data analysis; and be able to work independently, manage priorities, and accurately produce results in a timely manner.

Publishes collaborative research and gives presentations at meetings of biological, bioinformatic, or other professional groups, thereby reporting results of bioinformatic/biomedical research.

Prepares bioinformatics reports, manuscripts, and bioinformatics sections of grant applications.

Coordinates bio-analysis with scientists, bioinformatists, computer administrators, and wet lab staff.

Devises or develops new biological methods and techniques. Assists in validation of methods.
