Summary

The Bioinformatics Analyst II will work in the laboratory of Dr. Pavan Reddy. The Bioinformatics Analyst II will be responsible for taking on highly interdisciplinary projects and key functions in this endeavor, including applying state-of-the-art open-source software for basic and advanced analysis of transcriptomics and proteomics data. The Bioinformatics Analyst II will also analyze epigenetics (e.g. ChIP-seq) and transcriptomic (e.g. RNA-seq, single cell RNA seq) datasets. The Bioinformatics Analyst will work closely with the team to develop cutting-edge computational tools as the lab expands into new research areas.  The Bioinformatics Analyst II should be highly motivated, well organized, manage time effectively, and can work independently as well as part of a team. The Bioinformatics Analyst II will have a background in bioinformatics, computational biology, and/or biostatistics and have experience developing scripts in languages such as Python and/or R. The Bioinformatics Analyst II must be able to work independently with programming languages, such as R, Python, and/or Linux/Unix to autonomously execute genomics pipelines.
