Bioinformatics Data Analyst
Scientist I/II
Job Number: XHX9873
Department: GAN Synthesis and Arrays

Job Description:

Working closely with experimental researchers and other
members of the Bioinformatics team, the candidate will be
responsible for processing and analyzing data derived from
high-throughput DNA chip experiments. You will identify and
automate repetitive tasks to enhance data retrieval,
manipulation, and analysis. Additional responsibilities
include: scientific data transformation; integration of off-
the-shelf bioinformatics and chemioinformatics software
products; database integration; application of clustering,
multivariate statistics, visualization and data mining
tools; development of analytical methods and custom scripts
to integrate diverse computational tools.

Job Requirements:

This position requires the knowledge and skills normally
acquired through completion of a MS/PhD in Molecular
Biology, Genetics, Statistics, Chemioinformatics, Computer
Science or related field, and 1-3 years of relevant
experience. To qualify, the candidate must have experience
in generating useful information from massive output of
data, an appreciation of the use of statistical methods and
mathematics in the interpretation of biological data,
knowledge of bioinformatics tools (e.g. GCG), and
demonstrated computer skills including experience with UNIX,
Windows NT, and scripting languages (e.g. perl, Tcl/Tk,
Phyton). An excellent understanding of the biology behind
sequencing, genetic mapping and fingerprinting, and
transcriptional profiling is necessary. Hands-on experience
with multivariate statistics, cluster analysis, database
technologies, SQL, data mining, UNIX shell, Web/CGI,
additional programming skills (Java, C++, C), and a record
of publishing is a plus.
