Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS Professional @ New York Genome Center--New York, NY (US)
Submitted by Guevara Rowand; posted on Wednesday, January 11, 2012
NYGC is an independent, non-profit organization leveraging the collaborative resources of leading academic medical centers, research universities, and commercial organizations. NYGC's vision is to transform medical research and clinical care in New York through the creation of what will become one of the largest genomics and bioinformatics facilities in North America.

The Bioinformatics Professional will be responsible for analyzing and managing next generation sequencing data. Initially, the main goal will be to setup a data analysis pipeline with a focus on analyzing human whole genome/exome and RNA sequencing data. In addition, the person will be responsible for interacting with customers to deliver bioinformatic guidance and support.

* Advanced degree in the biological sciences with demonstrable computational skills required, PhD preferred
* 2 or more years work experience in Bioinformatics, Genomics or Genetics with experience in analyzing data derived from human genomic sequencing
* Must have experience managing and working with next generation sequencing data
* Must have extensive knowledge and experience in the use of existing bioinformatics tools and biological databases, as well as familiarity with cloud computing
* Experience working in a Linux environment required, with C++/JAVA and running a cluster using SGE and BASH shell scripting strongly preferred
* Prior experience in a new lab operation is preferred, preferably with an emphasis on 'external customers' rather than, or in addition, to 'internal researchers'
* A high tolerance for change will be beneficial as NYGC is in start-up mode and the environment will morph rapidly
* Excellent written and verbal communication skills required
