Bioinformatics/computational biologist to assist in the management, analysis, visualization and integration of large collections of genomic data pertaining to cardiovascular disease and development. Our group’s overall goal is to identify genes and pathways involved in both cardiovascular disease and development while also discovering the genetic factors that influence gene expression regulation. To accomplish these goals our group has been generating data using cutting edge high throughput technologies such as RNA-seq, ChiP-seq, expression and genotyping arrays and integrating them together as well as with public data from sources such as NCBI, the ENCODE project and EMBI. We are looking for an enthusiastic, self motivated bioinformatician with a programming languages (PERL, Python, Java/C++), statistical packages®, and SQL database design (MySQL, PostgreSQL) is required in addition to experience of working in UNIX/LINUX. The majority (75%) of time will be spent directly programming and analyzing large genetic and genomic data sets sequence data, including generation of reports and figures.
