Research Associate Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics Indiana University
The IU Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics (CGB), https://cgb.indiana.edu/, seeks a Research Associate to serve in the bioinformatics core. Responsibilities include computational analysis of genomic sequencing data, developing scripts and pipelines for automating genomic analyses, use of statistics in a genomic context, and the ability to present complex data to clients. The position requires good planning skills, good interpersonal skills, and the ability to carry out bioinformatics projects from beginning to end within a specified time frame. A working knowledge of biology and biological pathways and systems is preferred.
Position Requirements: Must have a BS, MS or PhD in biology, software engineering, computer science, statistics, or bioinformatics. Must have demonstrated experience with next-generation sequencing and the ability to code in Python (or equivalent scripting language).
Must have a demonstrated ability to communicate tactfully, professionally, and effectively with a diverse group of faculty, scientists, administrative staff, and other members of the research community.
Background: The Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics acts as a service facility that provides IU faculty access to genome technologies and bioinformatic support; provides consulting and training that supports the development of genome-enabled research programs and grant proposals; and develops new genome technologies and bioinformatics tools that are not easily purchased as a fee for service elsewhere.
