Bioinformatician position available at NIH (Bethesda, MD)

Posted on May 17,

We seek a bioinformatician/data scientist with a strong record of collaborative interactions with biologists.  The successful candidate must have an M.S. or Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science, or a related field.  The position requires the applicant to possess a solid set of programming skills (e.g. Python, R) and a desire to work with large data sets generated by next generation sequencing techniques (ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, Ribo-seq, ATAC-seq, Hi-C, genome sequencing, etc.).  Statistical training and/or experience with long read sequencing is highly desirable.

The successful applicant will work with a variety of independent groups within the Laboratory of Biochemistry and Genetics, Laboratory of Cell and Molecular Biology, and Laboratory of Bioorganic Chemistry that are applying computational techniques to answer fundamental questions in cell biology, genetics, and biochemistry within NIDDK at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD.  The position also involves building upon a larger bioinformatics network and potentially supervising other bioinformaticians.  Interested individuals should send a cover letter including relevant experience, curriculum vitae with list of publications, and the names and contact information of three references via e-mail to [email protected].  Applications will be reviewed upon receipt, and selected candidates will be contacted for a personal interview.

DHHS and NIH are equal opportunity employers.
