The Bunyavanich Lab welcomes talented, self-motivated individuals who can fulfill the responsibilities and requirements below to apply for positions in our lab at the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology.  The successful applicant will be part of an interdisciplinary team led by Dr. Supinda Bunyavanich that applies computational analysis and bioinformatics to interpret multi-scale data generated from subjects with asthma and allergic diseases.

Responsibilities:

  • Analyze high-throughput sequence and array data.
  • Develop and implement statistical methods to analyze these data for genetic risk, disease mechanism, and drug response. Projects may include network construction and mining.
  • Maintain large datasets linked to clinical data.
  • Communicate progress with PI regularly and contribute to the success of the research team.
  • Develop and maintain productive collaborations within Mount Sinai and with outside researchers in academia and industry.
  • Publish and present novel research findings in academic journals and conferences
  • Some supervision of trainees and technical staff may also be required.

Requirements:

  • Degree in bioinformatics, computer science, computational biology, genomics, or a related field.
  • Outstanding programming skills in R, Perl, Python, Java, C++, and Unix shell scripting.
  • Excellent track record of analyzing sequence data. Experience with clinical cohorts a plus.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of statistics and statistical genetics. Familiarity with genomic data tools, repositories, and databases.
  • Strong attention to detail and solid analytical skills.
  • Ability to work hard and independently while contributing to the team effort and adhering to deadlines.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills with track record of productive collaborations.
  • Demonstrated ability to work concurrently on several projects, and good understanding of analytic complexities to do independent research as well as assist other researchers.

The Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai seeks to comprehensively integrate the digital universe of information into research, training, and patient care and to develop programs that prepare students for careers in the future of healthcare and data science.

Interested and qualified candidates should submit a CV and cover letter to Dr. Supinda Bunyavanich (Supinda.Bunyavanich at mssm.edu).
