The Senior Genomics Bioinformatics Programmer is responsible for
the implementation and overall supervision of bioinformatics
analyses pipelines necessary for interpretation of assays that are
based on massively parallel sequencing technologies. In this
capacity, the incumbent will interact with teams of experimental
and computational scientists and trainees who work together to
design, execute and analyze complex experiments investigating
transcriptional mechanisms that control immune cell development and
function. Current assays include RNA-seq, single cell RNA-seq,
ChIP-Seq, ATAC-Seq, and three-dimensional chromatin conformation
The incumbent will maintain and update best practice computational
methods and provide training and oversight to members of the
laboratory in the application of assay-specific bioinformatics
tools. Will interface with technical support at the San Diego Super
Computer Center to maintain laboratory-specific computational
infrastructure necessary for data storage and analysis. As
necessary, will generate new software tools and/or provide
direction to trainees to develop such tools for problems lacking
appropriate analytical methods. Additionally, they will be involved
