St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has a unified mission to use cutting-edge research to discover the origins of disease, especially cancer, in order to facilitate advances in the treatment of disease that improve the lives of patients. The Blanchard Lab in the Department of Structural Biology at St. Jude is seeking a highly motivated and creative Bioinformatician to lead our genomics initiatives, using both existing and novel algorithms, to reveal insights into the role of translational control (using genomics and next-generation sequencing methods including RNA-Seq, ribosome profiling, Pro-Seq, etc.) in regulating physiological events related to cancer metastasis. Particular emphasis will be given to interrogating the role of non-coding RNAs from multi-copy gene families. The successful applicant will be an integral part of an interdisciplinary team of scientists, collaborating directly with team members to expertly solve challenges and empower them to make powerful quantitative insights. The ideal candidate will have the following:
MM Parks, CM Kurylo, JE Batchelder, CT Vincent, SC Blanchard.
