JOB DESCRIPTION

ABOUT THE POSITION: Bioinformatics Analysts work under the supervision of the PI, research scientist, or department head, to analyze complex bioinformatics research. Typical projects include, but are not limited to, all classes of High Throughput Sequence (HTS) data analysis (DNA Seq, mRNA Seq, ChIP Seq, micro RNA Seq etc), experimental design consulting, data integration, algorithm development, development of sequence analysis tools (bioinformatics programming), evaluation of analytical tools and technology, and delivering training to the research community.

Characteristic distinctions from level I to level III include increased ability to work independently, increased breath of bioinformatics knowledge and tools, and increased understanding of the biological research domains. Level III analysts may pursue limited co-pi collaborations with research faculty.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

-  Level I Analyst duties include entry level statisitcal analysis, algorithm implementation, bioinformatics programming, running programs and packaging results for clients. Evaluating data for quality assurance, and mining bioinformatics databases as a service for clients. Tasks are complex, but the incumbent has support of immediate suppervisor or mentor for directional support during execution of work.

-  Level II Analyst duties include basic statistical analysis, algorithm implementation, bioinformatics programming, running programs and packaging and interpreting results for clients. Conducting, analyzing, and interpreting quality assurance data. Mining bioinformatics databases and interpreting results. Often receives tasks from clients but requires attention from supervisor or mentor for additional directional support.

-  Level III Analyst work directly with clients, and receive work directly from clients. Includes all the responsbilities of Level II Analyst but works more independently and provides more indepth interpretation of results. Level III Analyst act as mentors to junior level coleagues.
