    Opportunity: Computational Analyst position @ CSHL -- Cold Spring Harbor, NY (US)
    Submitted by Marjorie Ryan; posted on Tuesday, November 13, 2012


    Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory invites applications from highly motivated candidates for a computational analyst position working on cutting edge computational biology research related to the genetic basis of rare, Mendelian diseases and severe mental illness, working with Dr. Gholson Lyon and other colleagues within the Stanley Institute for Cognitive Genomics. The position involves gene discovery and mapping using exome and whole genome sequencing and the characterization of newly identified disease genes and pathways.


    The candidate will a) implement workflows for whole-exome and whole-genome sequence data, b) perform bioinformatics analysis in collaboration with our research group and various scientists within the Woodbury Genome Center and CSHL, and c) develop new methods and approaches for the analysis of whole genome sequence data. The workflows will include methods for pre-processing, identification of sequence variants, comparisons to and integration with public databases, statistical analyses, and data visualization. The candidate will use these workflows to analyze data and to associate variants with both monogenic and complex diseases. The candidate will be expected to author scientific publications based on results of data analysis and on methods that have been developed.


    We are looking for an enthusiastic communicative team player with strong background in bioinformatics;
experience with the analysis of next generation sequence data is very useful but not mandatory;
experience with the statistical packages such as R; good programming skills (e.g., Perl, Java) and knowledge of Unix; good English language and communicative skills. A master's degree in a relevant discipline is required.


    Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is a world-renowned research and educational institution recognized internationally for its excellence in ground-breaking research programs in cancer, neuroscience, plant biology, genomics, and bioinformatics and broad educational mission.



    Interested candidates should apply online online at:

    Please include a CV and publication list, a statement of research interest and contact information of three references.


    Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is an equal opportunity employer
