    Opportunity: Senior Bioinformatician (#091875) @ Columbia University Medical Center -- New York, NY (US)
    Submitted by Columbia University Medical Center - Inst. for Genomic Med.; posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2018


    The Precision Genomics Laboratory (PGL), and the Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) are currently recruiting for a full-time Senior Bioinformatician to support their growing genomics efforts. The PGL is a CLIA-certified laboratory with a strong focus in constitutional diagnostics to support personalized medicine programs. The IGM is a key part of Columbia University's Precision Medicine Initiative to create a cohesive, university-wide research and teaching environment for human genetics/genomics. Together with academic and industrial partners, we aim to drive innovation in genomic medicine through vibrant research and apply them towards clinical applications that can directly benefit patients.

    We are seeking an ambitious Senior Bioinformatician to identify and develop synergies across different IGM and PGL bioinformatics activities, and help set strategic direction for bioinformatics resources. This role will include close coordination and ongoing collaboration with divisional IT and Informatics teams, and the clinical laboratory. This position represents an exciting opportunity to be at the forefront of genomic big data analysis and the field of precision medicine.


    The Senior Bioinformatician will manage a range of activities, including the following:
    • Provide leadership, mentorship and supervision to all members of the bioinformatics team
    • Participate in the design of processes, and the implementation of data analysis improvements
    • Establish best-in-practice operations
    • Provide training on bioinformatics-related concepts, applications and tools
    • Working closely with statistical geneticists and genome analysts, create, modify, and maintain web-based bioinformatics tools, public domain biological databases and software tools for sequence, domain, and structural analysis
    • Oversee the development of new platforms and solutions for large integrative analysis of genomic data
    • Improve user interfaces to bioinformatics software and databases


    Requires a bachelor's degree or equivalent in education and experience, plus five years of related experience.
