    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS Specialist (#SC-23899) @ FHCRC--Seattle, WA (US)
    Submitted by Alysha Duran; posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2011


    Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home of three Nobel laureates, is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to the development and advancement of biomedical research to eliminate cancer and other potentially fatal diseases. Recognized internationally for its pioneering work in bone-marrow transplantation, the Center's five scientific divisions collaborate to form a unique environment for conducting basic and applied science. The Hutchinson Center, in collaboration with its clinical and research partners, the University of Washington and Seattle Children's, is the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in the Pacific Northwest. Join us and make a difference!

    About the Department:
    The Clinical Research Division at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is addressing leading edge questions in biology and medicine in the application of genetic, genomic and computational approaches taking advantage of genomic information now derivative from the human genome project. As one of the first and a now longstanding applicant of genetic data to directing clinical practice embodied in HLA and other genotyping for marrow transplant, the Clinical Research Division expects to continue to make major contributions in the application of genome science to improve human health and well-being.


    The successful candidate will be involved in the analysis of high-throughput DNA sequencing data in a laboratory that is focused on understanding the genetics of the immune response. Projects include the analysis of human and nonhuman primate resequencing data, focusing on complex immune response loci, for the identification of disease-related variants. Successful applicant will work with a small team of biologists and software developers, and collaborate with clinical researchers.

    Major Duties:
    • Processing and analysis of next-generation DNA sequencing data
    • Design of new assays for genotyping complex immune loci
    • Development and testing of scripts and algorithms to improve on current practice
    • Participation at various levels of design and analysis in studies of genetics and complex disease


    • Applicants must have a Bachelors or Masters degree in bioinformatics, computer science, engineering or a related field, or a Ph.D. in a biology related field with a strong interest in the computational side of the study of genetics and complex disease.
    • Familiarity with at least one scripting language and a good understanding of genomics tools such as Phred, Phrap and Consed are required.
    • Previous experience working with large data sets is preferred. Development skills using an object-oriented language is a bonus.
    • Proven ability to work in a collaborative, fast-paced environment with good communication and teamwork skills is essential.
