Most of our job postings list "required" and "preferred" qualifications. We encourage individuals to apply who do not meet every preferred qualification, but who could grow and thrive in the role. Application Review Date The First Review Date for this job is: December 22, 2022 Responsibilities Deploys and integrates large-scale cluster computing, storage, and network infrastructure. The group and institute rely on the turnaround of large-scale sequencing data to biologically relevant results in an extremely rapid way. This requires a large-scale computing system that integrates multiple compute servers into a single accessible compute cluster system. The Bioinformatics Programmer applies an advanced understanding of Linux, x86, and cluster systems. Manages and scales high-speed network infrastructure. Manages complete usage of group computing infrastructure by testing for inefficiencies. Monitors software being utilized in existing and new pipelines are properly configured to take advantage of highly distributed computing resources. Ensures that group members' bioinformatic software and pipelines are properly configured and deployed to take full advantage of computing infrastructure. Resolves problems with computing hardware and software. Fixes high-end cluster computing infrastructure software and hardware failures. Rapidly identifies problems with compute infrastructure in a heterogeneous environment, ranging from small to large sized compute nodes. This includes being able to troubleshoot hardware system failures and network failures. Distinguishes between true hardware failures from software and/or usage failures by the group. Responsible for direct hands-on repair of computing infrastructure and solving technical computing problems independently. Perform independent and group research with the goal of novel biological discoveries. Develops methods that incorporate both biological and computational knowledge to facilitate the discovery of new biological entities that may include the discovery of novel viruses and mobile genetic elements; the discovery of new metabolic and energetic pathways using both existing and novel tools. Central to this is the facilitation of methods for the discovery of new genome editing tools. Analyzes and synthesizes different types of data (chemical, physical, and biological) from many different environments (soil, marine, deep subsurface). Focuses on the main research goals for the group that includes the integration of different types of data from many disparate environments. Utilizes modern data science tools to integrate large sequencing datasets with heterogeneous data types. Specifically, the coordination of microbial and viral genomes with biologically relevant data. For example, the association between microbial genomes and the correspondence of microbial genomes with environmental parameters (for example - sulfur and nitrogen species concentrations). Authors manuscripts for publication in research journals; present oral and poster presentations at research conferences. Authors scientific level publications in high-level journals. Responsible for quality graphics and figures from complex scientific data. As needed, collaborates with other members of the group and non-group collaborators with publications and presentations. Develops new algorithms and bioinformatic processing pipelines for genome reconstruction and analysis from massive metagenomic and metatranscriptomics. Creates bioinformatic algorithmic and processing pipelines in order to scale to massive dataset sizes. Develops bioinformatic methods so they can be broadly applicable to data from different environmental sources and sequencing platforms. For example, development tools must be able to process from both complex and simple communities and data from both long and short-read sequencing platforms. Creates Bioinformatic pipelines in order to be deployed across heterogeneous computing systems and be disseminated for use by users not part of the group. Guides institute members in the selection of appropriate bioinformatic analyses. Assists members of the group with analysis methods applying various data types and analyses. These data types range from single gene surveys to complex metagenomic and metatranscriptomic large sequencing datasets. The analysis includes the selection of pipelines that will effectively take advantage of compute infrastructure while maintaining data and analysis integrity. Applies advanced statistical knowledge of the analysis of microbial communities that includes the selection of correct wet lab and field protocols that will affect downstream bioinformatic method selection and analyses. Train staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers in directly performing bioinformatic programming development. Utilizes both direct one-on-one and group interactions with members of the group with varying degrees of bioinformatic expertise. Directly communicates and trains group members that are primarily biologists that have varying degrees of experience in computational systems and bioinformatic understanding. Develops and implements strategies with executive personnel for computational biological programs for large research groups, departments, and institutes. Manages data access and priorities for members of the group and international collaborators. The availability of the computational resources of the group is generally limited. As a result, one of the main goals is to ensure that computational infrastructure, specifically data storage, is properly balanced between archival and contemporary data sources. Additionally, monitors data access as the bulk of the computational resources are meant for group members. Collaborates with outside members and takes precautions in securing data to ensure that members and collaborators do not improperly use data. This also extends to computational resource usage, as collaboration is essential to the group, but must not hinder internal group usage. Verifies the quality, standardization, and providence of new data. Monitors large amounts of novel sequencing data that is constantly being generated. The new data entering the lab must be processed in a way that is both standardized and usable by the whole group. Develops practices and methods that ensure that all incoming data to the lab conforms to robust and standardized quality control. Process new data in a way that is translatable to a large multi-user group with varying degrees of technical training. This can mean ensuring that new data is tagged in a way that is understandable by everyone in the lab to ensure that data processing pipelines are compatible with existing analysis infrastructure.
