    Opportunity: Assistant Research Professional, Bioinformatics @ Arizona State University -- Tempe, AZ (US)
    Submitted by Elaina Thomas; posted on Thursday, October 15, 2020


    The Biodesign Center for Personal Diagnostics (CPD,[...]stics) in the Biodesign Institute within Arizona State University's Knowledge Enterprise is seeking an experienced Assistant Research Professional, Bioinformatics Engineer/Scientist who will provide bioinformatics expertise to our highly diverse and active research groups in production and analysis of genome-scale data to gain insights on human physiology and diseases. This position primarily for analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) for multiple projects at CPD, especially at the LaBaer ( and the Park ( laboratories, as well as external collaborative projects.

    Our group is specialized in cancer biology and biomarker research aided by sophisticated genomics/proteomics applications, cell and animal models, and equipped with fully automated robotic systems for gene cloning, microarray production/processing, as well as next-generation DNA sequencers. We also have a strong expertise in developing high-throughput assays, biomarker panels/signatures, and predictive modeling for various health-related applications. In addition, we are operating web applications for public data and resource repositories, such as the plasmid repository DNASU ( To operate and support the high-paced research activities, we are working closely with the Genomics and Bioinformatics Core at ASU and provide bioinformatics supports to both on- or off-campus researchers in a broad aspects of research projects, including genomics, proteomics, machine-learning, and statistics.
