A part-time Assistant Project Scientist position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Soojin Yi to conduct research on the genomic and bioinformatic analysis of next generation sequencing data including DNA methylation, single cell epigenetic and RNA-seq, and bulk tissue RNA-seq data. The data are likely from, but not limited to, from human and nonhuman primate species. The appointee will work with the PI and UCSB to establish computational infrastructure and pipelines to transfer, manage and analyze the data. The applicant will also perform troubleshooting, data processing, data managing, uploading and downloading data and codes to public domains, assist with statistical analysis and graphic processing. The appointee will be expected to make significant conceptual contributions to the project. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service as appropriate to the position.
