Research Data Analyst 1 (Job Number: 70840)
DescriptionAn exciting opportunity is available for a bioinformatician in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University. The position offers the opportunity to contribute to cutting edge research in the field of aging, in particular the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of the aging process. In this position, you can expect to perform data analysis on high-throughput genome-wide datasets in a wide range of research projects and different organisms. The bioinformatician will work in a highly collaborative environment, carry out data analysis and integration, and apply best-in-class algorithms – or develop new algorithms – that directly address the motivating biological questions. Further, the bioinformatician will develop reproducible and well-documented analytical pipelines for the analysis of high-throughput data, such as single-cell RNA-seq. The successful candidate will support several research projects in the lab and will have the opportunity to conduct his/her own research project. Collaborations across other labs and across departments are encouraged.
Proficiency in high-throughput genomic data analysis and a good understanding of biological systems are required, as are experience in programming and a solid background in statistical analysis. Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to interact effectively with members of the research teams are essential to the success of the individual in this position. The successful candidate must be able to learn and work independently, yet collaborate effectively with co-workers.
