Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Computational Science Analyst I in Cold Spring Harbor, New York

Position Description

Computational Biologist for Single Cell Genomics Trotman Lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

The Trotman Lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is looking for a Computational Science Analyst to support our research team.

We perform single cell genome analysis of cancer evolution in patient and mouse samples. This work is paralleled by gene expression analysis from microarray and next generation data of experimental samples from prostate cancer patients, mouse models of the disease and primary cell culture lines derived from these samples. Genome-wide copy number analysis is derived from Next-Gen sequencing and hierarchical clustering algorithms are used for establishing phylogeny using established pipelines and in collaboration with teams from the CSHL computational biology department. In addition, analysts also identify genomic variants in sequencing data and improve software and visualization that is used to define clonal evolution of cells and alterations associated with disease progression to metastasis or therapy resistance The analyst will work closely with the scientists so that data production and analysis are fully aligned.
