The Research Bioinformatician I (RBI) performs general bioinformatics analysis and software support for projects involving in omics. The RBI will manage omic data including loading and querying data from database system and public repositories and transform and merge multilevel omic data into user-friendly formats, assist in development, test, and maintenance of modular software pipelines, provide daily bioinformatics data analysis, preliminary interpretation of the data, and reports of the results for possible publications.
Provides general bioinformatics analysis support for omic projects and mainly responsible for data analysis and software compilations including next generation sequence alignment, polymorphism identification, expression analysis, and visualization tools and browsers.
Summarizes data analyses results in the form suitable as the basis for the first draft of written reports, and makes preliminary interpretations of the data.
Assists in development, testing, and maintenance of modular software pipelines for genome sequencing, assembly, annotation, metagenomic analysis, and genotyping using high-throughput sequencing platforms including 454, Illumina, and Pacific Biosciences.
Manages data including loading and querying data from database systems, downloading omic data from public repositories, and transforming data to the necessary formats.
Helps to identify, evaluate, and incorporate relevant algorithms and software pipelines by reviewing pertinent literatures in bioinformatics and computational biology.
DEPARTMENT AND/OR UNIT SPECIFIC – ESSENTIAL JOB RESPONSIBILITIES:
The primary focus will be on bioinformatics data analysis, software development and systems administration. The candidate will be working under the supervision of the ACBRI Bioinformatics team lead.
Additional ACBRI Requirements:
Evaluation and selection of commercial or open-source software required in assisting the proteomics database analysis, and analyzing the mass spectrometry data for its integration in pipelines
Provides general bioinformatics analysis support and assist in development, testing and maintenance of software pipelines for mass spectrometry data, network analysis, and visualization tools and browsers.
Coordinating with fellow programmers, scientists and technicians for providing support programming for analysis of genomic and proteomic data sequencing in various therapeutic areas and providing quality control instructions in programming
Development of scripts to move data from one analysis module to another, typically as part of the management of large data sets (loading, transformation, report generation, quality checks, etc.).
Aiding in software training for the scientists and technicians, maintaining the in-house tools and databases and supporting the bioinformatics team with their on-going efforts.
Since its beginning in 1902, Cedars-Sinai has evolved to meet the healthcare needs of one of the most diverse regions in the nation, continually setting new standards in quality and innovation in patient care, research, teaching and community service. Today, Cedars-Sinai is widely known for its national leadership in transforming healthcare for the benefit of patients.Cedars-Sinai is one of the largest nonprofit academic medical centers in the U.S. with 886 licensed beds, 2,100 physicians, 2,800 nurses and thousands of other healthcare professionals and staff. Clinical programs range from primary care for preventing, diagnosing and treating common conditions to specialized treatments for rare, complex and advanced illnesses. In addition, Cedars-Sinai serves the community through its Medical Network, which includes the highly rated Cedars-Sinai Medical Group and Cedars-Sinai Health Associates. Cedars-Sinai has consistently been named one of America’s Best Hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, has received the National Research Corporation’s Consumer Choice Award 18 years in a row for providing the highest quality medical care in Los Angeles, and has the longest running Magnet desig...nation for nursing excellence in California. Cedars-Sinai is a leader in the clinical care and research of heart disease, cancer and brain disorders, among other areas. Pioneering research achievements include using cardiac stem cells to repair damaged hearts, developing minimally invasive surgical techniques and discovering new types of drugs to target cancer more precisely. Cedars-Sinai also impacts the future of healthcare through education programs that encompass everything from highly competitive medical residency and fellowship programs to a biomedical science and translational medicine PhD program, advanced training for nurses and educational opportunities for allied health professionals. Most notably, Cedars-Sinai demonstrates a longstanding commitment to strengthening the Los Angeles community through wide-ranging programs that improve the health of its most vulnerable residents.
