Open Positions

Programmer/Analyst

The USTAR Center for Genetic Discovery (http://ucgd.genetics.utah.edu) at the University of Utah seeks a Programmer/Analyst to help investigate the genetic basis for human disease in large-scale genome sequencing projects. The successful candidate will join a dynamic, growing team of scientists and software developers working to integrate computational genomics into health care. Our team analyzes genome sequences from multiple large-scale genome sequencing projects across a broad range of inherited disorders, including lung and heart disease, familial cancers, inflammatory and immune conditions, metabolic disease, and neurological conditions. We also partner with life science and technology companies to develop novel software tools, diagnostics, and precision therapies based on our research.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with strong computational skills and experience with medical genetics/genomics research to help manage the research and analysis stage of multiple large-scale genome sequencing projects at our center.

Apply on the University of Utah Job board.  Direct questions to Mary Anne Karren makarren@genetics.utah.edu.

Associate Software Developer
