    Opportunity: COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGIST (#973) @ The Broad Institute -- Cambridge, MA (US)
    Submitted by Laura Bonfitto; posted on Tuesday, February 12, 2013

    BACKGROUND

    The Broad Institute was launched to pioneer a new model of collaborative biomedical science that would transform medicine. To accomplish these goals, we have built an amazing team of talented Broadies who work together to realize this transformation.

    The Broad community includes professional scientists from many disciplines, administrative staff, and students. We seek to cultivate an interdisciplinary, goal-oriented work environment that unleashes scientific creativity and empowers our people to pursue ambitious and critical projects. Our work transcends traditional academic boundaries, giving Broad employees and affiliates access to an unparalleled biomedical research community across the Harvard and MIT communities and beyond.

    We are always looking for new Broadies to join our team and help us tackle important problems at the cutting edge of science. The Broad Institute is committed to providing its employees with a competitive compensation and benefits package. We recognize the need for our employees to have a balance between work and personal life. To that end, our benefit plans and options reflect our desire to promote an environment that supports the health, diversity, and general well-being of our employees. All Broadies also have access to world-class research and state of the art technology and are fully supported in their professional development, pushing the envelope for further growth.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    Group Description:
    A lively team and wider community of computational biologists, medical geneticists, and software engineers dedicated to creating the GATK, a general-purpose, open-source toolkit for applying next-generation DNA sequencing to medical genetics. An integral part of the Broad Institute, a new kind of deeply-collaborative research institution that is transforming medicine and human health by building software to organize, process, and visualize scientific data on an unprecedented scale.

    Brief Summary:
    Will conceive and develop algorithms and analysis approaches to solve the key challenges for emerging DNA sequencing technologies, instantiate these ideas in usable software tools, and apply these tools to flagship Program projects like 1000 Genomes with revolutionary implications in human medical genetics. Will apply computational techniques and biological domain knowledge to design and implement analysis tools to solve complex computational and mathematical problems. Will work collaboratively with other scientists on computational research in a fast-paced environment. Must enable the research of other program scientists through excellent communication, teamwork, and a focus on creating usable and accessible research software tools. Must be capable of working in an interactive team environment while conducting self-directed research within broader goals set by group.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Must have significant programming and algorithm development experience with a Ph.D. in computer science or related field and familiarity with biological research problems. Must have track record of high-quality computational research. Must possess excellent general computational and programming skills; extensive experience with Java (or C/C++), and familiarity with Python (or Perl), and analysis tools like MATLAB and/or R. Excellent oral and written English communication skills required.
