Computational Scientist/Bioinformatics Position at the Laboratory for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, National Cancer Institute

Posted on September 27,

The Laboratory for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland is recruiting a Computational Scientist with expertise in analyzing transcriptional and post-transcriptional processes in eukaryotes. In this position as a staff scientist, the successful applicant will collaborate with our growing group of principal investigators (https://ccr.cancer.gov/laboratory-of-biochemistry-and-molecular-biology). The successful candidate will contribute to project design, devising pipelines for data analysis, and interpreting results, and will co-author manuscripts as appropriate. The candidate will also train fellows and other personnel in the best practices and pipelines for analyzing a variety of types of sequencing data. Areas currently under study in the Laboratory for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology include elucidating the ways in which small noncoding RNA pathways shape eukaryotic transcriptomes, the interplay between RNA pathways and chromatin modifications, and how chromatin structure and DNA topology regulate transcription activities in single cells.

Our ideal candidate will have extensive knowledge of gene regulatory mechanisms in eukaryotes and the specialized bioinformatics used to analyze a range of transcriptional and post-transcriptional processes as well as the interest and ability to develop new analysis pipelines. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree and should have at least two years of postdoctoral experience as well as a record of publications that provide evidence of their expertise.

To apply to this position, please send your CV and the email contact of 3 references to [email protected] and [email protected] with the subject “Application to Bioinformatics Position”.
