The Ucar laboratory at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine in Farmington, CT is seeking outstanding individuals to join our team to work at the intersection of Computational Biology and Immunology to perform analyses and develop methods to drive forward our understanding of how immune system and immune responses are changing with age in human and mice. For this, we generate state-of-the-art genomics data (ATAC-seq, CITE-seq) from primary human cells and develop computational methods to analyze and integrate these data. More information can be found at:
You will work closely with an interdisciplinary team of scientists including clinical and immunologist collaborators as we continue to build systems immunology pipelines and use them in exciting and novel ways. Your work will focus on age and sex-related variation in the immune system and in immune responses.
* Conduct statistical data analyses to analyze and interpret unpublished Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data from human/mice immune cells * Provide assistance with statistical aspects of projects/grants * Clearly and concisely present data verbally and in written forms * Work with lab members and external collaborators. Provide expertise and input in statistics when needed
* Master's Degree is required, and Doctorate (PhD) Degree is preferred in Statistics, Biostatistics, Computer Science, Bioinformatics or related fields * Minimum of three (3) years of experience within statistics or data analysis * Must have experience programming (R, Python or similar) can take an idea and implement it in code * Must have a strong interest in statistical data analyses * Must be collaborative, proactive and flexible in changing direction and methods when needed * Must be able to thrive in a fast-paced and inter-disciplinary environment * Experience with genomics data is preferred but not required * Ability to communicate ideas and work effectively with an interdisciplinary team and incorporate their feedback into analysis
The Jackson Laboratory (www.jax.org) is a nonprofit biomedical research institute with over 1,800 employees across three campuses nationwide. Our mission is to discover precise genomic solutions for human disease, and to empower the global biomedical community in the shared quest to improve human health. JAX's research institute in Connecticut, The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine (JAX-GM), is transforming medicine by improving patient care, lowering costs, and increasing life span and health span. JAX-GM's research focuses on the complex genetic causes of disease, and on the development of genomic solutions tailored to each person's unique genetic makeup.
JAX-GM sits on a 17-acre site on the campus of the University of Connecticut Health Center. The 183,500-square-foot facility opened in the fall of 2014. Now, it houses over 300 biomedical researchers, technicians and support staff in state-of-the-art computing facilities and laboratories. Our employees work in a collaborative, value-driven, and team-based environment where the focus is on advancing science and improving patients' lives.
JAX-GM resides in the scenic town of Farmington, in the state's capitol region. The Hartford region, which offers some of the best public schools in the country, is made up of both bigger cities and smaller, charming historic New England towns. JAX-GM is also geographically located within 2 hours of Boston and New York and is close to multiple transportation systems including bus lines, highways, railroads and international airports.
