Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory invites applications for a Computational Science Developer I in the laboratory of Dr. Jesse Gillis to focusing on bioinformatics and gene expression. This interdisciplinary project offers opportunities to develop, improve and assess software addressing important questions in computational biology and neuroscience with access to large novel data sets. The successful candidate will join a team at CSHL working to understand the molecular and functional basis of neuronal identity and diversity in mammalian brains. The position is computational but it involves substantial collaboration with wet-lab researchers providing data and is focused on fundamental biology.
This position is affiliated with the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology (SCQB).
A strong candidate should have expertise in scientific programming and familiarity with common bioinformatics software. Experience with R or Python is a requirement.
A typical background would include a bachelor’s degree in a quantitative field such as bioinformatics, computer science, or statistics, with a working knowledge of biological data. Proven expertise in these areas (e.g., relevant work experience) can substitute for a specific degree. Scientific training in largescale data analysis is an expected component of the project, so enthusiasm in this area of research is a plus.
Along with a brief letter of interest, applications should include a short CV and include the contact information of two references.
Applicant must be willing to relocate to Cold Spring Harbor Labs in Long Island NY.
For immediate consideration, please apply online to the position found here: https://cshl.peopleadmin.com/postings/18584 Posting ID: 03002-R
