Orion Group and our largest US client are teaming up for an exciting contract opportunity! We are seeking Bioinformatics Analysts with extensive experience with upstream processing of 'omics data (QC, normalization, exploratory data analysis), as well as downstream processing of bulk, single-cell, and/or spatial transcriptomic data.

Candidates with experience integrating multi-modal data (e.g., scRNAseq + scATACseq, spatial RNAseq + spatial proteomics) are especially encouraged to apply.

Daily Responsibilities will include:

  • Analysis of proteomics or other data modalities depending upon project needs.
  • Working within High-performance computing systems.
  • Shell scripting in a Linux environment, and have strong facility with R and/or Python, including relevant bioinformatics packages (e.g., Seurat, edgeR/limma).
  • The successful candidate will use a variety of 'omics data to test and refine biological hypotheses in coordination with wet-lab and computational colleagues.
  • Upstream processing of 'omics data (QC, normalization, exploratory data analysis).
  • Downstream processing of bulk, single-cell, and/or spatial transcriptomic data (e.g., cell type annotation, differential gene expression analysis, gene set enrichment analysis, results visualization).

Qualifications to be successful in this role:

  • PhD in Bioinformatics, Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology, or related field or MS with at least 6 years of experience.
  • single-cell and/or spatial transcriptome QC and analysis (e.g., with Seurat or Scanpy)
  • bulk RNAseq data processing and analysis
  • facility with R and/or Python for data exploration and statistical analysis
  • experience with high-performance computing (HPC) and job submission systems
