Bioinformatics Scientist/ Scientific Data Curator

Bethesda, MD, United States

Apply for this job


Computercraft is seeking a biologist with a background in human clinical or animal model phenotype data. The successful candidate will curate clinical phenotype data from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) database on Genotype and Phenotype (dbGaP), accessible online at ****. Our scientists work at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, MD, in a production-oriented, rather than research-oriented, environment.
dbGaP was developed to archive and distribute the data and results from studies investigating the interaction of genotype and phenotype in humans to assist scientists in discovering associations between genetic variants and risks for disease. Responsibilities of the Scientific Data Curator will include data quality control and curation, annotation and integration of study metadata (study protocols and data collection forms), and communication with external investigators. Candidates require the organizational and managerial skills to see a study through the process of original submission, internal processing, quality testing, and public deployment. This is an opportunity to be involved in the advancement of a high-profile resource that is working to revolutionize human genetic disease research.
Required Skills/Experience
Ph.D. or M.S. in a biomedical field (i.e., epidemiology, genetics, public health, pathology)
Strong organizational skills
Excellent oral and written communication skills
Ability to work with a team in a production environment
Strong interest in contributing to the development of public database resources
Advanced general computing skills
Linux and Windows experience
Other Desirable Experience
Knowledge of human genetics, clinical data, and epidemiology
Experience with NCBI resources
Experience with SQL
Familiarity with UNIX commands, open files, and directory trees
Experience evaluating incoming phenotype data for accuracy and consistency
Scripting experience in Perl or related scripting languages
Programming experience with Linux/UNIX
This is a full-time position working on site at the NIH Campus in Bethesda, Maryland, but the new hire will initially telework. Currently, all Computercraft employees at NIH are teleworking full time to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Employees will return to onsite work as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
Computercraft offers a competitive salary, an excellent benefits package, the opportunity for a positive work–life balance with a standard 40-hour work week, and the chance to work alongside a team of highly accomplished professionals.
Computercraft is an equal opportunity employer.
