At Boston Children's Hospital, success is measured in patients treated, parents comforted and teams taught. Join our acclaimed Division of Endocrinology and discover how your talents can change lives. Yours included.
The Bioinformatician I will work in Dr. Chan's research group, which uses human genetics to study conditions that affect reproductive endocrine development in children. Conditions studied include delayed puberty, in which puberty starts atypically late, and disorders of sex development, in which gonadal and/or genital development is atypical. Current projects involve analyzing whole-exome sequencing data and single nucleotide polymorphism-genotyping data to identify rare and common genetic variants contributing to these conditions. This Bioinformatician I will be responsible for:
Working closely with PI in the selection of bioinformatics method and the collection of experimental data. Plays a critical role in bioinformatics research projects, managing and advising researchers on specification and conduct of bioinformatics analysis.
Identifying and develop data analysis reports and presentations needed for managing the data analysis and monitor progress of projects.
Contributing to preparation of manuscripts including writing of bioinformatics methods and design, relevant results and data tables and graphs.
Contributing to preparation of grants including writing of bioinformatics methods and design, relevant summary of results using tables and graphs, and justifications of selections of specific bioinformatics approaches and data analysis pipelines.
Collaborating and consult with investigators and researchers on design, collection, and analysis of biomedical research data.
Providing education and consultation to investigators, research residents and fellows, faculty and key research study staff in the lab and collaborators on basic and advanced design and analyses issues.
Leading and manage the work of bioinformatics analysis requiring assistance from the PIs and researcher involved in relevant projects.
Providing positive and effective bioinformatics advice to lab and outside collaborators on joint projects.
Ensuring work in the lab, division, program, department, and other organizations is performed in conformance with established hospital, program, state, and federal policies and procedures.
To qualify, you must have:
The knowledge of study design, sampling methods, problem solving, and bioinformatics methods typically acquired through completion of an undergraduate degree in Bioinformatics, Informatics, Computer Sciences, Statistics, Biostatistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics with strong experience in genomic informatics. The knowledge needed could also be obtained through completion of a degree in a closely related field and two to four years of experience, including experience in bioinformatics consulting and analysis, assistance with protocol generation and grant writing, and collaboration in scientific writing.
The analytical skills to resolve scientific, ethical, regulatory, financial, and administrative problems.
Personal, educational, and leadership skills to effectively train and consult biomedical study investigators, research project staff, and bioinformaticians.
The ability to handle multiple problems and projects at one time, ensuring the accurate and timely completion of all projects, and dealing with conflicting views.
The ability to communicate effectively both orally and in writing.
