Opportunity: Bioinformaticist (#646110) @ Sandia National Laboratories -- Livermore, CA (US)
Submitted by Denise Wagner; posted on Friday, May 02, 2014
BACKGROUND:
Sandia National Laboratories is searching for a Bioinformaticist to join the Systems Biology Department team located in Livermore, California. The candidate selected for this position will be required to have the ability to obtain and maintain a DOE-granted "Q-level" security clearance, which requires U.S. Citizenship. A security clearance is not required to start.

Department Description:
The Systems Biology department, located in Livermore, California, conducts basic and applied experimental and computational research in the fields of Biodefense, Emerging Infectious Disease, and Bioenergy. The department consists of a multidisciplinary team of approximately 20 staff, postdocs and technologists with expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology, microbiology, phycology, molecular biology, and analytical chemistry. Specific areas of focus include the identification and characterization of known and novel pathogens, including products of genetic engineering, and their associated pathogenicity genes; the development of new methods for sustainable algal biofuel production; and the identification of molecular determinants of protein binding specificity. Key sponsors include the DOE Office of Science, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Institutes of Health, and the Sandia LDRD Program.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
We are seeking an experienced bioinformatics researcher to be a key team member in a multidisciplinary research group focused in Biodefense and Bioenergy, using molecular biology, analytical chemistry, and ultrahigh-throughput sequencing technologies to enable pathogen discovery, detection, characterization, and diagnosis, as well as to develop new generations of biofuels. The individual will provide technical leadership for bioinformatics efforts in these research areas. Responsibilities will include developing software systems to support both the management and analysis of sequence data and the design and execution of collaborative and individual research efforts. The candidate will be expected to work with scientific colleagues, collaborators, partners, and managers to define needs and priorities and to set strategic research directions.

REQUIREMENTS:
* This position requires a PhD in bioinformatics, computer science, or a related scientific discipline.
* A strong publication record
* Demonstrated experience in proposal development and writing
* Experience in the bioinformatics algorithms and software tools that are commonly used in the curation, assembly, and annotation of sequencing data sets
* Familiarity with current- generation and emerging ultrahigh-throughput sequencing technology and software tools
* Experience in software development and programming (e.g., C/C++, Perl, Python)
* A demonstrated ability to work with a diverse multidisciplinary team to solve complex problems
* A strong motivation to tackle science and technology challenges of national importance

PREFERENCES:
* Familiarity with one or more of the following: molecular biology, microbiology, virology, genetics, and infectious disease research
* A track record of obtaining research funding through competitive grants proposal submissions is strongly desired
