Employment Opportunities at NCGR

The National Center for Genome Resources (NCGR) is a nonprofit independent research institute engaged in plant, animal, and human genomics. NCGR also provides sequencing and bioinformatics services for external sites.  In sequencing, we operate PacBio and Illumina sequencing platforms in the domains of genome (de novo and resequencing), methylome, transcriptome, and ncRNA sequencing.  In analysis, we interpret sequence data at all levels.


 
Bioinformatics Analysts: Bioinformatics analysts will perform analysis of data obtained from short-read sequencing projects, including alignment to reference sequences, de novo assembly, and interpretation of results.  Background skills include a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in biology, biochemistry, molecular biology or related field, with experience in shell and Perl scripting, biological experimental methods and data interpretation. Preference will be given to a demonstrated experience in genomic or related analysis, particularly with respect to data-intensive sequencing technologies.
No positions currently open.

Postdoctoral Fellows: Postdoctoral fellows will have received their Ph.D. in a computational or biological science, but with considerable cross-training or experience in the reciprocal area. These areas may include plant, animal, or human biology, molecular or systems biology, or computer science. Fellows will initially be hired to develop projects in existing areas of interest to NCGR. These positions will require considerable independence in terms of developing significant research thrusts within projects.
No positions currently open.

Developers: Software developers will have considerable and demonstrable skills in contemporary programming languages, including Java, Perl and Ruby, and comfortable with good software development processes including revision control, release management and post hoc support. Additional languages (C, C++ etc.) are desirable. Other areas of interest include distributed and/or cloud computing, and visualization development. Developers should have a firm grounding in the objectives of modern biological research and standard methodologies.
No positions currently open.

Consultants: Specialized areas of development that are of interest include data modeling, database and pipeline development in a genomic or biological context. Candidates must have demonstrated strengths in the design, development, and implementation of distributed systems for workflows and in data management. Strong communication skills are required, as well as an ability to work on multiple teams.
No positions currently open.

Lab Technicians: Technicians will undertake day-to-day, production sequencing operations of the Genome Center. Applicants with experience in molecular biology and production sequencing operations, particularly with next-generation sequencing instruments, are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will work as a part of team in the Genome Center, in daily operation of sequencing instruments, optimization of protocols and quality metrics, and implementing new applications. Applicants should have a B.S. or equivalent, significant molecular genetics skills, and experience in running production laboratory services such as DNA sequencing will be desirable.
No positions currently open.
