    Opportunity: Principal Investigator - BIOINFORMATICIAN @ Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute--Port St. Lucie, FL (US)
    Submitted by Jill Hacket; posted on Thursday, July 26, 2012


    At VGTI Florida, we are committed to discovering innovative therapies and vaccines to improve human health. VGTI Florida is seeking to recruit the best-trained scientists from academia and biotechnology to cultivate an environment for science where innovation is rewarded. It is ultimately the talent of the individuals we recruit that determines our success and our state-of-the-art technologies and resources that enable individuals to realize this success. Our people are the most important asset in our pursuit of achieving excellence in research. Our staff not only enjoys outstanding benefits but also work in an environment noted for community involvement, intellectual excitement, and natural beauty.


    As a Principal Investigator, you will be leading a cross-functional research team of high-level scientific personnel to drive execution to project timelines and overall program goals from initial concept through successful conclusion. This position will utilize principles and methods of systems science and be responsible for the successful development and implementation of an internationally recognized independent research program in integrated bioinformatics. The candidate is expected to maintain a highly competitive, innovative, extramurally funded research program. Appointment will be at the Associate Member level.

    As part of Faculty at VGTI Florida, your duties will include:
    • Responsibility for conceptualizing, designing, developing, and integrating complex databases, data analysis, data mining, and computational modeling.
    • Developing and integrating data sets from multiple platforms which could include phenotypic and clinical data sets combined with "OMICS" platforms such as genomics, proteomics and metabolomics
    • Partnering with peers to identify opportunities for process improvement, knowledge transfer, and reuse of existing informatics solutions.
    • Interacting closely with the Bioinformatics core facility to develop, implement and validate novel algorithms, platforms and pipelines for data analysis and integration.
    • Being the primary consultant for staff regarding informatics requirements, data analysis, analysis platforms, data correlative development, and representation
    • Mentoring others in techniques of data collection, mining and management
    • Applying knowledge of bioinformatics algorithms and analysis platforms to consult on and lead computational biology projects
    • Working in a highly skilled, team-oriented environment applying knowledge of cellular, molecular, and computational biology to create novel methods and testable scientific hypotheses
    • Understanding and instructing on the strengths and limitations of analysis platforms as they apply to experimental endpoints and will readily be able to set expectations and defend results through direct communication with principal investigators and their staff
    • Developing a strong extramural research program resulting in high profile publications and independent funding


    • Completion of a successful Post-doctoral fellowship as evidenced by high profile publications and/or independent funding
    • Experience in developing applications geared towards systems biology
    • Proven experience in managing informatics projects
    • Highly skilled in verbal and written communication across diverse technical, non-technical, and scientific audiences
    • Good knowledge of database design, database applications development required
    • 5 or more years of experience in data processing, pipeline development and/or programming within a bioinformatics environment required
    • Previous experience in computational modeling and machine learning techniques
    • Experience with statistics as it relates to highly multidimensional data sets
    • Strong programming skills in at least one scripting language such as R, Perl, Python, or Ruby.
    Education Requirements:
    • Ph.D. in Informatics, Computational Biology, Genetics, or related discipline required
