    Opportunity: Bioinformatician @ The Translational Genomics Research Institute -- Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Submitted by Brady Young; posted on Tuesday, March 18, 2014


    TGen is looking for computational rock stars to analyze cancer genome sequencing data from next generation sequencing technologies for assisting in clinical decision-making. The applicant will be involved in NGS data analysis and interpretation, and clinical genomics knowledge mining and content derivation. Both master's level positions and post-doctoral training fellowship positions are available. Multiple positions are available.


    TGen is a non-profit biomedical research institute based in Phoenix, Arizona, focused on research that can help patients with cancer, neurological disorders, diabetes and other debilitating conditions. Working with a worldwide network of collaborators in the scientific and medical communities, TGen researchers study the genetic components of both common and complex diseases. Through genomic analysis, we learn how DNA, genes and proteins – the microscopic building block of life – can affect human health. Our 35 lead investigators and nearly 200 support personnel at sites in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Flagstaff, Arizona, are dedicated to improving patient care and quality of life through precision medicine, best defined as the right therapy, for the right patient, at the right time.


    The successful applicant will be required to work independently and must be able to manage their time across multiple concurrent projects. The primary development language is Perl although expertise in other languages such as Java, C, C++, PHP and R also required. The development environment is Unix.

    This person will focus on developing analysis methods for DNA microarrays and next-generation sequencing, in order to identify the genetic basis of neurological disease, including bipolar disorder and autism. The incumbent will analyze research requirements by talking to researchers. Design, test, document and deploy software to meet requirements. Prepare journal publication detailing analysis.


    • Master's level degree in related field is desired
