The position of Scientific Informatics Analyst at the MBL in Woods Hole remains open and we welcome additional applications at

Position Summary: The Marine Biological Laboratory is seeking applications for a full-time Scientific Informatics Analyst position with the Josephine Bay Paul Center. The successful applicant will play a key role in the evaluation and development of bioinformatic tools to support analysis of high-throughput next-generation (Illumina/454/Ion Torrent) sequencing data. In close collaboration with Bay Paul Center researchers, the applicant will develop, document, and maintain bioinformatics processing tools for a wide range of projects. Examples include processing of raw Illumina data to maximize quality; clustering, annotation, assembly, and visualization of metagenomic data; building SQL database structures to manage next-gen sequence information; analysis of RNA-seq and small RNA expression data; whole genome assembly and analysis; visualization of DNA sequence information and associated metadata; and analysis and visualization of microbial population structures. Close interaction with experimental and informatic scientists will be an important part of the job.

• A master’s degree or equivalent experience level in mathematics, computer science, computational biology, or related field.
• Experience with object-oriented bioinformatics programming languages in a unix environment (Perl, Python, Javascript, SQL) and compiled languages (e.g. C++), relational databases, and construction of computational pipelines.
• Ability to work independently and with teams of technical and nontechnical personnel, manage multiple projects, and respond to a rapidly changing environment.
• Prior experience with next-generation sequencing data, particularly Illumina short-read data, preferred.
