  • Bioinformatics Specialist Wanted

    The Nickels Lab at Rutgers University uses Next Generation Sequencing to study how gene expression is regulated at the level of transcription. Specific areas of interest include small RNA-mediated gene regulation and the regulation of transcription elongation and termination. We are seeking a talented Bioinformatics Specialist to join the lab.

    Your responsibilities will be two-fold:

    1. Design and implementation of strategies for the analysis of high throughput sequencing data in consultation with other lab members and according to the specific needs of their projects.

    2. Direct your own analyses of data to identify possible new areas of research, using your expertise in bioinformatics to develop new projects to advance laboratory goals.

    In addition to collaborating on multiple informatics-based projects, the ideal candidate will also conduct research that leads to independent presentations at meetings and first author publications.

    The ideal candidate will have a masters degree or PhD in bioinformatics.

    Your skills should include:

    • Strong foundation in molecular biology
    • Proficient with UNIX/LINUX
    • Highly proficient with Perl or Python
    • Highly proficient with C++ or Java
    • Experience with statistical analysis using R or Matlab.
    • Experience with open-source software, tools, and databases for analyzing next-generation sequencing data (RNA-seq, DNA variation)
    • Working knowledge of how to apply statistical tests to large datasets

    Must have excellent communications skills and the ability to work well with other members of the group.

    Please send curriculum vitae and contact information for three references by email to [email protected]

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
