We are looking for a Bioinformatics Data Analyst to assist in the development and maintenance of bioinformatics applications and analysis pipelines running on the Amazon Web Services cloud instances and on-premises computing platforms. You will primarily support Tier1 process including a series of high-throughput phenotyping assays for mouse gene knockout experiments. Our workflows typically perform statistical analysis on large amounts of quantitative data to determine the effects of gene loss-of-function mutations on metabolism, blood chemistry, hematology, body composition, splenic immune cells and behavior. We also use image data and annotations to study temporal and spatial patterns of gene expression detected with a lacZ gene reporter constructs. The role also has a higher level data-reporting component, including automated generation of scientific presentations and the development and maintenance of various web applications. You will primarily develop and maintain bioinformatics analytics and data reporting platforms supporting the Pre-Therapeutic Target Discovery (PTTD) department.

In this role, a typical day might include performing the following:
• Integrate and perform quality-control of quantitative data from multiple sources.
• Develop and maintain automated analysis workflows for a variety of scientific purposes.
• Use on-premise and remote computing platforms to automate to accelerate analyses.
• Work with researchers in PTTD and scientists in the bioinformatics core group to understand their needs and suggest, provide and support appropriate tools and feature requests.
• Work with other bioinformaticians to enhance existing pipelines, share methodologies, and develop best standards.

This job might be for you if:
• You enjoy working productively in a fast-paced collaborative environment.
