  • May collaborate with wet-bench biologists and work independently to experimentally validate data derived from computational studies

  • May give presentations both inside and outside of the institution

Requirements:

  • Academic degree in quantitative sciences (e.g. computer science, statistics), computational biology/bioinformatics, or biological sciences with a strong proven track record of programming

  • Strong interest in human genetics, genomics and disease. Publication record would be a bonus

  • General Skills:

  • Strong understanding of biostatistics, bioinformatics and clinical research

  • Excellent knowledge of R and other programming scripting language

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills

  • Excellent organizational skills, including the ability to multitask, set priorities and meet time tables while managing several simultaneous projects

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills in English are required

  • 3 years experience required

  • Working experience with genetics or statistics analysis software and online resources. Experience in programming environments such as Matlab, R statistical package, BioConductor, Perl or C
