Opportunity: NGS (Next generation Sequencing) Data Analyst (#1966) @ The Hospital for Sick Children -- Toronto, ON, Canada
Submitted by Daniele Merico; posted on Wednesday, August 28, 2013
TCAG, The Centre for Applied Genomics at The Hospital for Sick Children, is one of the leading genomics centres in the world. The TCAG informatics facility is involved in computationally challenging problems such as de-novo genome assembly, identification of potentially pathologic single nucleotide variants utilizing exome or whole-genome re-sequencing and copy number variant detection. TCAG also supports the Database of Genomic Variants (DGV), the major copy number variation database. The Hospital for Sick Children is one of the leading paediatric health care centres in the world with an international reputation for excellence in health care, research, and teaching.


We are seeking a highly motivated bioinformatics analyst to run and extend analysis pipelines for human/mammalian NGS (next generation sequencing) data, with a specific focus on variant detection in exome and whole genome resequencing applications.

The position will report directly to the informatics core facility manager and will involve close interactions with other informatics facility members.

The candidate will have a M.Sc. or equivalent degree in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering or related fields. Previous experience with NGS data analysis, solid knowledge of scripting languages (Perl, Python, R or Ruby), SQL and Unix OS are strictly required. Excellent communication and team work skills are also required. Strong preference will be given to Canadian citizens, permanent residents as well as graduates of a Canadian institution eligible for a post-graduation work permit.

Previous experience exome/whole genome read alignment and variant detection tools is a plus.

The work will be conducted at the TCAG/The Hospital for Sick Children, Toronto. Toronto is a major international centre of genomics, proteomics and systems biology research; there will ample opportunity for professional development through research seminars, workshops and research in progress meetings.

Salary is commensurate with education and qualifications.

Fixed-term, 2 year contract, with the possibility of extension. TCAG is strongly committed to provide continuative funding for bioinformatics personnel with a good performance record.
