Join a world-class academic medical center as a Research Bioinformatician II at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center!
The Lawrenson laboratory at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center works on risk factors and molecular hallmarks of gynecologic diseases, with a focus on ovarian cancer and endometriosis.
We perform basic and translational research, interrogating mechanisms of gene regulation as a vehicle to understand genetic variation in the noncoding genome. This is achieved by using technologies such as RNA-sequencing, single cell sequencing, and chromatin immunoprecipitation-sequencing.
We are currently recruiting a Research Bioinformatician II to support our analysis of epigenomes, transcriptomes and whole genomes in gynecologic tissues. The RB II will work alongside senior analysts in the laboratory to implement existing analytic pipelines, and establish/optimize new pipelines. The RB II will work with genome, expression and epigenome data generated in the Lawrenson laboratory, as well as publicly available data. The RB II will assist with generation of figures for papers, presentations and grant submissions.
As a Research Bioinformatician II, you will perform data analysis and software support for projects involving next generation sequence data. The RB II will collaborate with co-investigators to define pertinent research questions, find appropriate software tools for data analysis, and will leverage national biological databases and online resources. The RB II will also work with the PI and institutional bioinformatics facilities to anticipate future bioinformatics needs, and helps to develop tools and pipelines as necessary to keep pace with rapid advances in sequencing technology. You will demonstrate continuous self-improvement, make effective contributions to the section, and adhere to CSHS compliance plan, code of conduct, and hospital and departmental policies and procedures.
Providing healthcare for more than 100 years, Cedars-Sinai has evolved into one of the most dynamic and highly renowned medical centers in the world. Along with caring for patients, Cedars-Sinai is a hub for biomedical research and a training center for future physicians and other healthcare professionals. This attracts exceptional talent to Cedars-Sinai, including world-renowned physician-scientists who seek a place where they can both conduct research and see patients--the ideal formula for discovery and its translation into cures. Our patients benefit from access to doctors at the top of their fields, and our researchers have an ideal community in which to study the impact of healthcare challenges, and reflect that knowledge in their research. The greater Los Angeles area in which Cedars-Sinai resides possesses unparalleled cultural and ethnic diversity which offers outstanding opportunities for translational and clinical research and a dynamic environment for medical education.Although community based, Cedars-Sinai is a major t...eaching hospital affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Cedars-Sinai has highly competitive graduate medical education programs in more than 50 specialty and subspecialty areas, a graduate program in biomedical sciences and translational medicine, a clinical scholars program directed towards junior physicians with aspirations to become clinical scientists, and post graduate training opportunities.There are more than 250 full-time faculty members at Cedars-Sinai. The voluntary medical staff, comprised of more than 2,200 specialty board-certified or board-qualified physicians, represent all of the specialties and subspecialties and collaborate with full-time medical staff in the teaching responsibilities of the graduate medical education programs.
