    Opportunity: Bioinformatics Analyst II, Genomics Shared Resource @ Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center -- Seattle, WA (US)
    Submitted by James Martinez; posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2019


    Cures Start Here. At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, home to three Nobel laureates, interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. Fred Hutch's pioneering work in bone marrow transplantation led to the development of immunotherapy, which harnesses the power of the immune system to treat cancer. An independent, nonprofit research institute based in Seattle, Fred Hutch houses the nation's first cancer prevention research program, as well as the clinical coordinating center of the Women's Health Initiative and the international headquarters of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network. Careers Start Here.


    • Work closely with Genomics staff to bring new instrumentation online, implement new analysis workflows, and maintain laboratory operations including automation of routine data processing and routing to end-users.
    • Develop, implement, and test standardized analytical pipelines to support common NextGen sequencing assays (e.g., RNAseq, ChIPseq, SNV/CNV).
    • Communicate with researchers and identify appropriate bioinformatics tools to meet the needs of proposed research projects.
    • Provide support to Fred Hutch statisticians, bioinformaticians, and computational biologists working with genomics data.
    • Participate in weekly staff meeting to discuss ongoing projects and provide advice and support to colleagues.
    • Provide figures & written sections describing methods and results for manuscripts, presentations, and grant applications generated by Fred Hutch researchers.


    Individual will have a bachelor's, master's or PhD degree in computer science, bioinformatics, biology, genetics, or related discipline with significant computational emphasis and at least 3 years of relevant experience working with genomics data. The individual must be proficient with Linux/Unix shell scripting (primarily bash) and possess strong programming skills in Python and R. Knowledge of Java or C++ a plus. Must have a proven track record of deep sequencing analysis showing a working knowledge of standard analysis tools (e.g., GATK variant calling pipelines, alignment & pseudoalignment based RNA-seq quantitation, Bioconductor packages) and relevant databases. The individual should be self-motivated, perform in a highly independent manner, and possess strong interest in the biological sciences. Solid communication skills (both verbal and written) and organizational skills are essential, as is the ability to be creative in problem-solving situations.
