Summer Research Training Program in Biomedical Big Data Science

Posted October 2017

We are currently accepting applications for our BD2K-LINCS DCIC 2018 Summer Research Training Program in Biomedical Big Data Science, a research intensive ten-week training program for undergraduate and graduate students. Summer fellows training in the Ma’ayan Laboratory conduct faculty-mentored independent research projects in the following areas: dynamic data visualization, machine learning and data harmonization.

Data Scientist – Bioinformatics Web Developer II

Posted October 2017

A full-time position is available in the Ma’ayan Laboratory of Computational Systems Biology and the BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The Ma’ayan Laboratory conducts multi-disciplinary NIH-funded research that utilizes big data analytics to develop better understanding about drug action in human cells, build molecular regulatory networks from high-content genome-wide data, and predict optimized therapeutics for individual patients across several complex diseases.

What you’ll do:

The successful candidate will collaborate with an interdisciplinary team on projects related to bioinformatics, big data science, and systems biology including developing, implementing, documenting and maintaining web-based software applications used by the larger scientific community. You will work on various aspects of research and infrastructure projects. Your work will include:

  • Developing novel dynamic data visualizations
  • Applying machine learning to identify patterns in large and complex datasets
  • Harmonizing and abstracting data from a variety of sources
  • Developing novel statistical mining strategies and algorithms
  • Developing websites, databases, APIs and other data exchange protocols

What you’ll bring:

  • Master’s or PhD (PhD preferred) in Computer Science, Informatics, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Engineering or Biological Sciences and a strong interest in working on data-intensive biomedical problems.
  • Experience with machine learning, multithread programming, and cloud computing
  • Experience developing and deploying web-based and mobile apps
  • Experience with bioinformatics research projects
  • Knowledge of Python, R, Java, JavaScript, Node.js, MongoDB, MySQL, Docker

To apply, please e-mail your CV, research statement, and the names and contact information of three references to: sherry.jenkins@mssm.edu
