Job Title Bioinformatics Specialist
Laboratory / Department Genetically Encoded Small Molecules
Natural products- or more generally, genetically encoded small molecules- play a wide variety of roles in biology and have proved useful in the development of small molecule therapeutic agents. Dr. Brady's research centers on the discovery, biosynthesis and characterization of new, genetically encoded small molecules from microbial sources, with a special focus on those produced by uncultured soil bacteria and pathogenic bacteria. He is also interested in developing molecular tools that can be used to observe small molecules in vivo.
The Bioinformatics Specialist will assist with research focusing on the analysis of genes involved in the biosynthesis of bacterial metabolites. Will be responsible for analyzing large next-Generation sequencing data sets and presenting bioinformatics issues and solutions to audiences with varying levels of experience.
Master's degree required; Ph.D. preferred. Programming skills and an in-depth knowledge of the software available for analyzing large sequencing data sets required. Must have experience analyzing large Next Generation sequencing data sets and be well versed in gene annotation software, and graphics software for genomics.
