    Opportunity: Bioinformatics -- CGC Cancer Genomics Cloud Resource (Intern) @ General Dynamics Information Technology -- Falls Church, VA (US)
    Submitted by Dr. David Pot; posted on Thursday, May 09, 2019


    Do you want to help cancer researchers optimize their use of the Google Cloud? Would you like to apply your growing bioinformatics skills to help bring the best analysis pipelines/workflows to the cancer research community? Are you interested in learning how to use the powerful Google Cloud Platform Technologies such as Genomics API, Variant Transforms, BigQuery, and Cloud ML? If any or all of this excites you, we want you to join our team! We are one of NCI's "Cancer Genomics Cloud Resources", the ISB-CGC, developed by GDIT and our partners at ISB (Institute for Systems Biology) to democratize access to data and cloud-scale computing for cancer researchers worldwide.

    The position is for a full time summer intern and can take place either from your home in the USA, or at a local GDIT office.


    • Help create tutorials in the form of Jupyter notebooks or R scripts that demonstrate to end-users how to best use bioinformatics pipelines and tools on the Google Cloud using ISB-CGC resources.
    • Help create and prototype genomics and clinical workflows based on rapidly developing workflow technologies to allow ISB-CGC end users to optimize the use of NCI Genomics and Clinical Data in the Google Cloud Platform.
    • Help in the creation and development of portable genomics and clinical pipelines that can be run on cross-cloud platforms.


    • Currently enrolled in a Masters program in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Genomics, or related field
    • Experience with implementing bioinformatics and genomics pipelines and workflows in a research environment
    • Proficiency with Python, UNIX/LINUX, bash scripting and R
    • Demonstrated fluency with tools and methods for next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis (bwa, GATK, Picard, samtools, vcftools, RVTESTS, beagle, GenomicRanges, etc.)


    Preferred experience:
    • Cancer research experience
    • Experience with cloud development ecosystems – Google and / or AWS
    • Familiar with Jupyter notebooks and the use of container technologies such as Docker
    • Implementing parallel computation for bioinformatics pipelines
