Job Description:

Everyone's unique health journey is informed by data. Join us as we translate today's discoveries into tomorrow's medicine Cedars-Sinai is home to some of the most advanced biomedical research and training programs in the world, which attracts renowned physician-scientists seeking an unparalleled environment for fostering invention and teamwork. The McGovern Laboratory studies the effects of genetic variation in the inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Also called the Translational Genomics Group (TGG), the McGovern Lab is focused on identifying genetic variants associated with both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and then investigating their functional effects and also their role in determining disease behavior and natural history, including response to therapy. The McGovern Lab also investigates the role of the microbiome in IBD and particularly the relationship between genetic variation in the host (human) and microbiome-related changes. Work in the McGovern Laboratory includes significant statistical and computational biology components, and the lab is developing novel methods for integrating multi-omic datasets together with clinical metadata. To learn more about our lab and institute, please visit McGovern Research Lab - Cedars-Sinai. Are you ready to be a part of breakthrough research? The Research Bioinformatician II (RB II) performs general bioinformatics analysis and software support for projects involving omics, and interact with investigators to identify research problems, find appropriate software tools, and recognize national biological databases and online resources for omic data. The RB II will manage omic data including loading and querying data from the database system and public repositories, and transform and merge multilevel omic data into user-friendly formats, assist in development, test, and maintenance of modular software pipelines, provide bioinformatics data analysis, preliminary interpretation of the data, and reports of the results for possible publications. Our Research Bioinformatician II will also work with bioinformatics faculties to determine future bioinformatics needs, and helps to develop tools and pipelines as necessary to keep pace with rapid advances in sequencing technology. The RB II will demonstrate continuous self-improvement, make effective contributions to the section, adhere to the CSHS compliance plan, code of conduct, and hospital and departmental policies and procedures, and may serve as a preceptor for students. Primary Job Duties and Responsibilities: Provides general bioinformatics analysis support for omic projects and is mainly responsible for data analysis and software compilations including next-generation sequence alignment, polymorphism identification, expression analysis, and visualization tools and browsers. Develop, test, and maintain modular software pipelines for omics analysis, including but not limited to genome/transcriptome/Microbiome sequencing, assembly, annotation, and analysis. Identify, evaluate, and incorporate relevant algorithms and software pipelines by reviewing pertinent literatures in bioinformatics and computational biology Manages data including loading and querying data from database systems, downloading omic data from public repositories, and transforming data to the necessary formats Summarizes data analyses results in the form suitable as the basis for the first draft of written reports, and makes preliminary interpretations of the data. Familiar with medical and biological terminologies, bioinformatics resources, and national biological databases, Ready to provide solutions for investigator's problems through data mining and extraction Assists or collaborate in the preparation of grant proposals, publications, and presentations involving omic data Helps develop tools and pipelines as necessary to keep pace with rapid advances in sequencing technology. Educate others about bioinformatics through mentoring and teaching colleagues, investigators, fellows, and graduate students. Department-Specific Responsibilities: Ongoing implementation and development of bioinformatics tools and pipelines oriented towards the manipulation and dissemination of NGS and Omics data. Development is generally geared towards high-end Linux servers. Implement, develop, test, integrate, and document bioinformatics tools and pipelines. Employ the software/pipeline development life cycle and best practices including version control, bug tracking, issue reporting, and code reviews. Consult and provide feedback to management. Education: Master of Science Degree in Computer Science, Electric Engineering, Computational biology, or Bioinformatics, or Master of Science/ Engineering in relevant fields (e.g. Biology with strong quantitative training, biostatistics with concentration in bioinformatics) required. Experience and Skills: Three (3) years in a research environment. Background and work knowledge in algorithms, scientific computing, and machine learning or statistics. Familiar with R, Python, and the Unix (Linux) environment the Unix (Linux) environment. Experiences in manipulating, analyzing, and annotating very large genomic (e.g. NGS) data sets both in exploratory and pipelined fashions. Familiar with C/C++/Java/Perl is a plus. Familiar with Bioinformatics pipeline building/Bioinformatics method development is a plus. Ability to apply knowledge of information software and/or hardware to provide solutions and/or support. Ability to apply advanced knowledge of science/learning/specialized intellectual instruction to analyze, interpret or make deductions from varying facts or circumstances.
