  • Computational Biologist, Metagenomics

    The Computational Biologist based within the Genome Sequencing and Analysis Program of the Broad Institute will focus on the analysis of large scale data sets to address the influence of the human associated microbial communities on health and disease risk.

    The successful applicant will participate in a dynamic scientific community with a diverse range of scientists on multiple projects and data sets to perform timely and accurate bioinformatic analyses. Duties include: developing and applying computational methods and algorithms for analyzing metagenomic & metatranscriptomic datasets to determine the structure and activity of the human microbiome; interacting with a variety of technical and scientific personnel from the Assembly Analysis and Genome Annotation teams, and with external collaborators to ensure efficient communication and completion of analysis projects; assessing data quality and troubleshooting moderately complex systems and data analysis issues; Organizing and displaying results for presentation and viewing by the scientific community; Documenting analysis procedures and methods for future reference.

    We are looking for a Ph.D. in computer science or life sciences with relevant research experience in both disciplines. A strong background in bioinformatics, microbiology, metagenomics and statistics is required, with experience in developing computational methods and algorithms, databases, and study of next-generation sequence data. The candidate should have strong organizational and record keeping skills in data analysis, and effective oral and written communication skills to present findings at group meetings, conferences, and in publications.
