The Center for Applied Bioinformatics (CAB) is looking for a highly motivated and creative individual to join our Genetics Group. As a Bioinformatics Analyst III, your responsibilities will involve running routine genetics pipelines and developing new, faster and more efficient pipelines under the direction of Dr. Evadnie Rampersaud (Genetics Group Lead). We are seeking candidates with expertise in computer science, and related programming fields. Knowledge and training in computational biology, genetics, or molecular biology is useful. In this position you will be part of a fast pace group working with leading clinical and research scientist on key projects including focus on cancer epidemiology and genetics, and neurological diseases. You will be highly integrated into a larger Center with Transcriptomics and Epigenetics Groups, which will allow for educational and cross-training opportunities.
Our group works closely with investigators in St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Center, the first and only NCI designated cancer center devoted to children (https://www.stjude.org/research/comprehensive-cancer-center.html), in order to discover and understand the genetics and biology of pediatric cancers. Our projects extend to nonmalignant hematological disorders such as the Sickle Genome Project (http://sickle-cell.stjude.cloud/) and related blood disorders (https://www.stjude.org/treatment/disease/other-blood-disorders.html) and neurological diseases. We have close collaboration with the Department of Biostatistics (https://www.stjude.org/research/departments-divisions/biostatistics.html) for expanding methodological approaches.
Applicants should have substantial training in computer science and programming languages. Some understanding of molecular biology or related field would be useful. Knowledge of web design and/or Cloud interface development would be highly desired.
