Opportunity: Post-doctoral fellowship in bioinformatics & NGS analysis in cancer genomics @ Quebec Genomic Centre -- Quebec, QC, Canada
Submitted by Arnaud Droit; posted on Friday, August 16, 2013
RESPONSIBILITIES:
We seek postdoctoral fellows to work in our childhood Cancer Genomics group.

We are seeking a qualified bioinformatician to work on next-generation sequencing and genomic projects in the area of childhood cancer. Methods comprise DNA/RNA-seq analysis and integration of these datasets with other genomic data such as from SNP/CNV arrays, gene expression microarrays, as well as with clinicopathological and patient data. Projects underway include whole exome/genome sequencing of clinical specimens to determine tumor genetic treatment predictive factors and identify novel cancer-related genes.

The successful applicant will work with bioinformaticians and research scientists in a team environment.

REQUIREMENTS:
Programming experience with scripting and high-level languages (e.g. Perl, Python and/or Java) is required. Strong communication skills, attention to detail, and the ability to remain organized in a fast-paced and dynamic environment are also essential. Knowledge of human genetics/genomics is preferred. Demonstrated expertise in analysis of next-generation sequence data analysis is desired. Additionally, familiarity with statistical analysis of large datasets is required.

Applicants must hold a PhD, or equivalent degree in bioinformatics/computer science or a related field equivalent and have a strong desire to work in the field of bioinformatics and cancer research. The candidate should have proven experience in bioinformatics or computational biology. The successful applicant will be well versed in computer programming, with previous experience of next-generation sequencing data analysis and scripting using R/Bioconductor/perl being a plus. A strong publication record in the field of bioinformatics is highly desirable.

TERMS:
The duration of the position will be at least 2 years.
