    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICIAN II @ TGen--Phoenix, AZ (US)
    Submitted by Brady Young; posted on Sunday, August 15, 2010


    The Translational Genomics Research Institute (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 41 lead investigators and nearly 300 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.


    TGen is looking for an experienced Bioinformatician to play a key role in the newly established Collaborative Center for Bioinformatics (CCB). The successful applicant will apply bioinformatics, database, and software development skills to assist TGen scientific staff in efficiently processing bio-medical data, identifying relevant data sources, automating repetitive bioinformatics tasks, integrating and mining diverse biological datasets, developing custom data analysis tools and workflows, and translating prototype informatics tools into more mature tools suitable for wider usage or release to the scientific community. The individual will support multiple research projects from multiple investigators by delivering bioinformatics services for bio-medical data from cutting-edge genomic and proteomics technologies.

    • Develop, apply, and provide bioinformatics software tools to researchers.
    • Working closely with scientists and their staff to understand data processing challenges and provide custom solutions for sequencing, gene expression, proteomics, pathway, DNA copy number, genomic and proteomic databases, and genome-wide association studies to expedite scientific projects and drug discovery process
    • Develop/deploy prototype algorithms and parallel processing methods, analyze data, evaluate results, and effectively present them to collaborators; Work on multiple projects in deadline driven research environment; consistently develop and customize software applications according to project specific needs.
    • Integrate various genomic, proteomics, and other biomedical databases and provide custom tools for querying and mining information.
