Job Summary 13;
The Tan research group (tanlab4generegulation) within the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics at The Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia is seeking an enthusiastic candidate for a bioinformatics scientist position. The laboratory is interdisciplinary and highly collaborative, utilizing both computational and experimental approaches to study gene regulation in normal and disease development. We have pioneered multiple computational algorithms for regulatory genomics, epigenomics, and network biology. Key responsibilities include developing and maintaining interactive bioinformatics databases, collecting and analyzing genomics datasets, bioinformatics data analysis, summarizing results and preparing reports, and contributing to manuscripts/publications.

The desired candidate should have a BS or MS in bioinformatics or related fields such as statistics and computer sciences. Strong statistical and computer programming (R, Perl/python, JavaScript, C/C++) skills are essential. Previous research and classroom course work in bioinformatics is preferred.

Job Responsibilities 13;
Pre:Analysis (40): Contributes to the maintenance and development of bioinformatics tool portfolio by developing knowledge of internally developed systems, open:source programs, and commercial applications. Provides efficient data management support.
:Works with bioinformatics group members to develop functioning pipelines upstream of customized analysis workflows.
:Maintains pipelines by staying current with evolving algorithms and standards and incorporating into pipeline.
:Executes robust development testing for commonly used applications such as data processing pipelines.
:Optimizes performance of applications by working with scientific computing and information systems groups to optimize hardware/software parameters.
:Defines and prioritizes requirements for pipeline development over time to incorporate new technologies and platforms via functional communication with bioinformatics group members and bioinformatics end users.
:Identifies appropriate open:source and commercial products that serve needs of pipeline and/or customized analyses of end users.
:Implements and maintains commercial and open:source software for common bioinformatics and genomics data analysis.
:Implements, updates and maintains locally stored data resources required for various analysis tasks.
:Provides ad hoc support and one:on:one and group:based training on key bioinformatics software, features, and workflows.
:Provides efficient data management support including file transfers, data formatting and manipulation, and basic integration of data from a variety of experimental and reference resources.
:Develops and maintains working relationship with data providers such as sequencing cores within CHOP and infrastructure groups such as information systems.
:Continually keeps abreast of evolving data generation platform fundamentals, file:specific information representation, and strategic application of code base to optimize value of data.
:Maintains working knowledge of available commercial and openly accessible knowledge bases as they apply to bioinformatics analysis. 13;
Job Responsibilities (Continued) 13;
Coding (30): Codes and generally supports both ad hoc, single task applications and larger pipeline applications that may combine multiple 3rd party and internally developed applications for genomics/proteomics/other complex data types and projects.
:Implements, maintains, and regularly contributes to formal and bioinformatics group:centralized code management system.
:Adopts appropriate forking and other strategies for robust code development. Apply to general bioinformatics group code base.
:Adopts best practices for code development consistent with larger bioinformatics group. This includes choice of langua
