Research Associate, Population and Quantitative Health Sciences

The Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has a Research Associate position available in the areas of genomics and bioinformatics research with a special emphasis on transcriptomic assays and analysis related to human and non-human primate diseases in a collaborative environment.  Successful candidates will have at least 5 years of experience in genomics and systems biology with demonstrated skills in multiplex PCR and sequencing methods, project management, and bioinformatic analysis with interpretation.

The responsibilities for this position include designing, managing, performing and analyzing genomic and transcriptomic experiments (e.g. exome, RNA-Seq, miRNA-Seq) experiments with a high degree of independence.  The successful candidate will also provide supervision, technical guidance and training of technical staff developing novel low-input (including single cell) protocols in next generation sequencing and bioinformatic analysis of the human and macaque genome and transcriptome.  The candidate will have technical skills in providing high quality, SOP-driven nucleic acid isolation, genomics support and quality control/quality assurance to the laboratory and multidisciplinary programs focused on cancer and infectious disease (including HIV) vaccine and therapy research.  The candidate must also have expertise in collaborative science and in applying knowledge of genomics, proteomics, pathway and network analysis software, and biology to the interpretation of resulting datasets and contribute to research so as to merit serving as author or co-author on research publications.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests, and the contact information for at least three references to Mark Cameron:
