    Opportunity: Associate Computational Biologist @ The Broad Institute -- Cambridge, MA (US)
    Submitted by Laura Bonfitto; posted on Wednesday, January 29, 2014


    A lively team and wider community of computational biologists, medical geneticists, and software engineers dedicated to creating and supporting general-purpose analysis software for applying next-generation DNA sequencing to medical and cancer 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.


    The successful candidate will serve as a central expert resource on pipeline tools, documenting best-practices and tutoring community members, and working with team members and investigators to carry out specific analyses as needed. The candidate's major role will be to assist with support of users of the genomics software developed by the medical and cancer genetics research teams: the Genome Analysis ToolKit (GATK,, MuTect, and related tools for use in germline and somatic mutation discovery and analysis.


    • Work closely with medical and cancer genetics groups to ensure user proficiency with analysis software, diagnose and/or resolve user issues, and provide scientific/technical support
    • Create and maintain tutorials and web posts, develop web-based technical
    documentation and FAQs
    • Organize workshops to train users in best practices and general workflows
    • The Broad Institute will not offer visa sponsorship for this opportunity.
