    Submitted by Hannah Lawrence; posted on Thursday, December 06, 2012


    Seeking enthusiastic, motivated PhD or Master's level bioinformaticians to staff a divisionally funded Bioinformatics Core.

    The BSD's Center for Research Informatics (CRI) is a new and rapidly growing organization whose mission is to provide the informatics resources and services to BSD faculty to enable them to conduct research of the highest scientific merit and to advance the state of the art of clinical informatics, translational informatics, and bioinformatics. The CRI is also dedicated to research, education, and training in informatics. The Office provides informatics support services by working with UC researchers to conceive, plan, design, implement, deploy, operate, and support biomedical research data capture, management, integration, and analysis applications. The CRI is looking for individuals who will contribute their skills in a fast-paced cutting edge environment and will be leveraging state-of-the-art technologies to deliver innovative and exciting solutions for researchers.


    The Bioinformatician designs and implements bioinformatics services for faculty in the Biological Sciences Division of the University of Chicago as a member of the Center for Research Informatics Bioinformatics Core. All projects will be related to translational or clinical research broadly defined and may include support for high through put genomic technologies. These services may include developing and implementing software methodologies and computational tools as needed by project, keeping abreast of industry trends and new technologies and recommending potential solutions based on the latest technical developments.
