Project Description

Bioinformatics Scientist
  • Our company  seeks a Bioinformatics Scientist to analyze next generation sequencing data and to implement bioinformatics software tools for the analysis and improvement of industrial microorganisms.  
  • The candidate will be a hands-on contributor in a global collaborative environment, embedded in research projects involving genomic characterization of microbial strains (bacteria, yeast, filamentous fungi) via comparative genomics, taxonomy, transcript analysis, and genome characterization. 
  •  The candidate will also integrate genome information with other biological data streams (e.g., proteomics, metabolomics, SNVs, CNVs, DNA methylation) to identify genes that confer improved phenotype.  
  • Responsibilities include implementation of computational tools, bioinformatics analysis pipelines and software solutions for visualization of omics data.  
  • Providing occasional training in basic bioinformatic analysis to non-bioinformatics researchers is also required.

  • Requires a PhD with 2 years of related experience or Master’s degree with 4 years of experience in bioinformatics, computational biology, or a related discipline.  Candidates should have a strong background in the application of bioinformatics software for Illumina sequencing and utility programming in a UNIX environment coupled with excellent verbal and written communication skills.  
  • Previous experience in analysis of eukaryotic or microbial genomes is essential.  
  • Proficiency with Python programming language and statistical analysis with R, Matlab or Python, and data visualization are highly desirable.

The Bioinformatics Scientist will have:
  • Extensive knowledge of bioinformatics software tools as evidenced by personal publications.
  • Strong written & verbal communication skills as well as interpersonal skills.
  • Productivity working in an interdisciplinary team environment.
  • Knowledge of microbiology, biochemistry & genetics in addition to computer science and computational biology skills.
  • US citizenship or permanent residency status (green card) is required.

  • Candidate will be challenged with the complexity of global project activities and providing tools and solutions for a scientifically diverse global R&D community. 
  • In addition, the candidate will be challenged by the rapidly changing landscape of bioinformatics tools.
