Requires a Masters or Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, or a related field with knowledge of both molecular biology and computer science.

This position is in the bioinformatics core facililty at NYU School of Medicine. It involves assisting many different students and scientists with bioinformatics problems (DNA and protein sequence analysis, microarray data analysis), maintaining shared bioinformatics software and databases, and building custom pipelines and databases for collaborative genomics projects.

Familiarity with common bioinformatics programs (BLAST, CLUSTAL, Primer3) and database creation skills (mySQL, data modeling) are essential. Some experience with programming in a command line environment is highly desireable (UNIX shell scripts, Perl, S+ or R, etc).

This is a career building position for a person who can hold an intelligent conversation that contains sentances with the terms "alternative splicing" and "normalized relational database." The work will lead to publication and the opportunity to write grants while learning a great deal about practical bioinformatics and building teaching skills.
