    • Coordinate the handling of spaceflight tissues post-mission, prepare and send out for genomics/proteomics analysis (to third-party providers) and downloading this analytical data into the database.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Masters Degree
    • 5 years experience in Bioinformatics or related field
    • Background in the field of omics research technologies (genomics, proteomics, etc.)

    PREFERENCES
