Bioinformatics - Novel High Throughput Sequencing Methods

Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

A computational biology position will be hired depending on the qualification and is available from October 2021.

  • Research in bioinformatics focus on investigating high throughput sequencing data using novel methods.
  • Work with available pipelines or develop new ones.
  • Implementing various modeling and prediction techniques, including linear and nonlinear regression, principal component analysis, support vector machines, self-organizing maps, neural networks, set enrichment, Bayesian networks, model-based analysis, and geneset/pathway/network analysis.
  • Strong statistics scripting/programming experience (including R, Bioconductor)
  • web-based tool development
  • applying integrative bioinformatics, genomics and computational systems biology approaches to identify and characterize radiation response of gene regulation and function of genes involved in multiple cancer types.

Qualifications:

The candidate must have a Ph.D or MS in any of the following: Computational biology, bioinformatics, mathematical biology, or computer science with specialization in algorithm development.

Knowledge and experience in R, scripting (PHP, Java script) and high-level programming languages (Java, Perl) is essential.
