Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
Will join a team using high-throughput technologies and computational approaches to study the immune system, in normal defenses and in autoimmune diseases. The Computational Data Analyst will work in close collaboration with experimental investigators in the lab, and also partake in the Immunological Genome Project (ImmGen), a consortium of immunology and computational biology labs. They will develop data-specific algorithms, and/or evaluate software suites developed elsewhere, to best extract specific answers from large immuno-genomics datasets (single-cell and population RNAseq, epigenomic profiling, microbiome). Will do so using advanced multivariate statistics and deep learning approaches (CNN), implemented in R, Python, MatLab, in Linux, OSX or Windows environments. They will be responsible for the implementation of data analysis and display tools used by experimentalists in the lab, and in training them to use these tools. Will handle core data processing and management, and may also partake in the development and deployment of web visualization tools for ImmGen data and knowledge. These responsibilities will be enabled by coordination with computational collaborators and other resources in the laboratory, at HMS, and across the Boston community. We are looking for a strong team player, who also has the experience and range to take full responsibility for projects and harness the available resources as needed.
