NYU Center for Genomics and Systems Biology - 12 Waverly Place, New York, NY 10003
The Bergelson lab at NYU's Department of Biology is looking for a highly motivated and independent individual to work as a part time Part-Time Assistant Researcher.
This position is for a trainee preparing for a research path. It will provide development of technical skills; supervision by senior scientists incorporating individual development plan in support of training goals and those of faculty mentor; and possible publication of research findings during appointment period.
Responsibilities include: Refining 100+TB of sequencing data, porting historical data to new servers, and developing front-end tools facilitating data access. Additionally, this role requires building and maintaining common computational tools for lab members, including Confluence, Slack, and Box. This position requires experience in generating genomics data, but also have extensive experience in data management across different genomics platforms.
Projects in the Bergelson lab focus on the ecology and evolution of plant–pathogen interactions, focusing primarily on Arabidopsis thaliana and associated microbes. Our approach is interdisciplinary; we draw upon tools from molecular genetics, molecular evolution, computation, field biology, chemistry, and population genetics to understand how ecological interactions shape evolutionary dynamics.
Extensive wet-lab experience generating high-throughput sequencing data
Programming experience on different operating systems (Windows, Linux, Unix)
Hands-on experience in maintaining large 'omics data storage, bioinformatics data science projects.
Familiarity with project management tools, including Confluence, Box, Slack
Experience in front-end development
Working knowledge of Python ecosystem, bash scripts, and R
Prior experience generating large next generation sequencing (NGS) libraries, including Illumina and PacBio. Experience with long read sequencing a plus.
Interdisciplinary experience working with empiricists, computational biologists, and IT professionals to find integrative solutions to data management for the lab
