The Waksman Institute at Rutgers University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow for Genomics Sequencing, with a tentative starting date of October 1, 2018.
We are seeking individuals experienced in analyzing high thorough-put sequencing data on next generation genome sequencers. The analysis entails assessing the quality of the data, processing of the data through appropriate analysis pipelines, determining the quality of the analysis and whether further analysis should be done, and assembling results for researchers.
The Waksman Institute is home to over 15 faculty members who use a broad range of approaches and experimental systems in numerous well-funded research programs. The Institute is part of a vibrant and interactive life sciences community that includes the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, School of Arts and Sciences Division of Life Sciences, the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, the Human Genetics Institute of New Jersey, and the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. A leading research university, Rutgers is a member of the AAU and CIC. For more information, please visit our website: https://waksman.rutgers.edu.
