Undergraduate student openings
Undergraduate Research Assistant, BD2K (ER 7485): The UCSC Genomics Institute seeks talented undergraduates with mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, computer science or computational biology backgrounds for paid undergraduate researcher positions. Computational analysis projects include developing data science and require programming skills. This is a great way to get experience in the rapidly changing and expanding field of computational genomics!
Haussler Laboratory Assistant (ER 6736): We are seeking an undergraduate student to work closely with the Haussler Lab Manager with routine lab assignments, such as maintain laboratory work areas, prepare common laboratory reagents and buffers, autoclave biohazard waste and labware as needed, report the inventory status of defined laboratory items to the lab manager, wash and autoclave laboratory glassware and plasticware, stock consumable items in cell culture and main lab spaces, maintain bacterial plate stocks and create stock lab solutions as necessary, and assist lab personnel with routine experimental procedures such as PCR, plasmid preps, etc. This is a great opportunity to utilize knowledge and skills learned in science laboratory classes.
For consideration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and a short description of relevant experience and how it fits with what we're looking for.
Global Alliance for Genomics Health (GA4GH): The UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute is driving the development of an interoperable API for genomic data sharing as part of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health. We are seeking contractors interested in developing schemas, a reference implementation and conformance suite for the API and applying the reference implementation within a number of driving projects. Candidates should have a solid computer science background and programming experience in Python, and/or Java, and a good understanding of modern development practices and databases. Ability to develop high-quality software in a collaborative environment is a must. The work to be completed will involve working with a large, international team of developers.
Genomics Data Engineer: The UC Santa
Cruz genomics institute’s high-throughput genomics group seeks a workflow
specialist for analyzing petabytes of genomic data. The work to be
completed includes the running of genomics based workflows on large
datasets. The work does not include the primary development of the
pipelines, but rather running them, interpreting the output in terms of
quality control metrics and adjusting the pipeline parameters to optimize
performance. The contractor should have some bioinformatics
experience, including basic bio-statistics and next generation sequencing
analysis work. Experience using commercial cloud and high performance
computing environments would be very beneficial. The work will involve
working with the engineering team to use and deploy highly automated
systems that remove much of repetitive, manual aspects from the work. The
work will involve communication with the program manager in negotiating
time-lines and deliverables. The work will require a fastidious and
diligent disposition, and careful, efficient effort and clear communication
will be highly prized.
