At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we're not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we're driving excellence and improving outcomes.
For the 27th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We are proud to be on Becker's Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2016, as well as Glassdoor's annual Employees' Choice Awards 2017. We're treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
The Immunogenomics and Precision Oncology Platform (IPOP) is a newly established program at MSK. IPOP is dedicated to developing precision immunotherapy at MSK. The program's goal is to use state-of-the-art approaches to unravel the molecular determinants of response to immunotherapy and to optimize immunotherapeutics such as immune checkpoint inhibitors and neoantigen-based vaccines using large scale analyses.
This is an industry-level position in collaboration with MSK and AstraZeneca. We are looking for a senior Bioinformatics Engineer who will be involved in the analysis of large-scale immuno-genomic datasets collected by our own group as well as those shared by our collaborators. This position will involve close collaboration with a pharmaceutical partner of IPOP. The successful candidate should have advanced programming skills and a strong quantitative background with the ability to be able to perform and present results of complicated analysis. Strong communication skills and the ability to present results of analysis to a broad audience of physicians, scientists, and research staff is a must. In addition, the ability to design, development and maintenance of computational pipelines in the center is a plus.
Examples of responsibilities include:
Play an active role as an investigator in exciting immuno-oncology research projects
Present results of analysis to collaborating scientists, physicians, and colleagues.
Develops, maintains, and expands functionality of existing and to be developed bioinformatics software tools
Installs necessary and relevant bioinformatics software
Stays current with general bioinformatics tools and installs/runs tools as needed (genomics, proteomics, other bioinformatics tools)
He/She will work with computational and experimental biologists in a dynamic and exciting academic environment at the nexus of cancer biology, computer science, statistics and clinical research.
Required Qualifications :
Bachelors in a quantitative field of study.
Masters or PhD in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or related quantitative discipline.
Parallel/High-performance computing experience
Advanced skills in Perl, Python, and/or R
Experience in software engineering tools and methods
Strong knowledge of bioinformatics algorithms, statistics, and software tools
