Bioinformatics Scientist - National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Division of Intramural Research (DIR), Laboratory of Immune System Biology (LISB).
- Provide a variety of support using computational analysis, integration, and modeling of diverse data sets, to include microarray, bulk and single-cell RNAseq, ATAC-seq, flow and CyTOF phenotyping, serum proteome, SNP genotyping, and microbiome profiling.
- Provide data analysis using a “Bottom up” dynamical modeling, for example, starting from networks of molecular/cellular interactions.
- Work and serve as the main point of contact with NIH/NIAID IT and high-performance computing teams to set up, develop, and maintain necessary computational infrastructure and tools for research.
- Assist with writing of scientific manuscripts.
- Assist with preparation of scientific presentations for both internal team members and outside at scientific conferences.
