[Gofriends] Bioinformatic Analyst position with SGD

Mike Cherry cherry at
Sun Oct 18 14:08:31 PDT 2009

Fixed Term Position - Application Bioinformatics Analyst, Research

Stanford University's Department of Genetics has an excellent  
opportunity available for a motivated and experienced Bioinformatic  
Analyst. This individual will be an essential project member  
interacting with international research laboratories and taking  
responsibility for evaluating these data. Experience in genomic data  
and the ability to evaluation new technologies are needed to  
successfully define the use of these data. The analysis will be via  
computational methods created by others but integrated at SGD.  
Knowledge of new experimental methodology, large genomic datasets and  
their computational analysis is expected. The experience should  
include the bioinformatic analysis of data types such as RNA  
transcription and second-generation sequencing. Experience with  
comparative genomics is desirable. An advanced education in biology is  
required to facilitate the assessment of experimental details and to  
successfully evaluate quality control of novel experimental data. The  
successful candidate must be able to learn and work independently, yet  
collaborate effectively with co-workers. Previous experience working  
in an academic environment is a plus. The candidate will be expected  
to participate in group discussions regarding software specification,  
design, and implementation with both programming and non-programming  
staff at SGD. The work will take place in a dynamic environment where  
specifications often change rapidly in response to user demand, so the  
candidate must be able to be flexible in his or her software design  
and implementations. This position will work within the Saccharomyces  
Genome Database project. Compliance with all institutional and  
governmental health and safety regulations and policies is required.

• Advanced degree in Biology or Bioinformatics, plus 5 years experience.
• Experience with data quality assessment.
• Experience with relational databases and Perl scripting.
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
• Knowledge of modern high-throughput genomics and proteomics  
experiments and their data types.

Desired Qualifications:
• Four-year college degree in Computer Science.
• Laboratory experience with Saccharomyces, Drosophila or  
• Experience with software development environments.
• Laboratory experience in genetics or molecular biology.
• Experience with comparative genomics is desirable.
