Data Scientist IV (Multiple Positions)

The University of Arizona
Job Location:
Tucson, Arizona
Database Administrator

Posting Number: req11061

Department: Asthma/Airway Disease Rsch Ctr

Location: UAHS - Tucson

Address: 1657 E. Helen Street, Tucson, AZ 85721 USA

Position Highlights

Associate Professor Anthony Bosco is seeking a Data
Scientist IV/Bioinformatician to join his academic research laboratory at the
University of Arizona. The position will be based within the Asthma and Airway
Disease Research Center (A2DRC), an interdisciplinary Center of Excellence at
the University of Arizona Health Sciences Center, and the leading US center
focused on understanding the early origins of asthma and COPD. The role will
entail applying cutting-edge systems biology approaches (multi-OMICS, single
cell genomics) that will enable a much deeper understanding of the role of the
developing immune system in the pathogenesis of chronic lung diseases. The
long-term goal of this work is to unlock the molecular secrets that govern the
early origins of asthma and related traits and accelerate the development of
novel therapies.

The ideal candidate for this position will be passionate
about developing creative and innovative solutions to further our understanding
of the pathogenesis of complex diseases. They will be working with a
multidisciplinary team comprising internationally recognized physicians,
scientists, and scholars seeking to understand and eradicate airway diseases.
They will have a PhD in Systems Biology, Computational biology, Bioinformatics,
Data science, or a related discipline, experience with the analysis of omics
and/or single cell genomics data, and a solid understanding of
biology/molecular biology. Preference will be given to candidates who have
experience with HPC, reproducible workflows, and a track record of publications
in good quality journals. The candidate will have the opportunity to lead their
own project and apply for grant funding.

The A2DRC is led by Fernando D. Martinez, MD. Since the
1970's the A2DRC has conducted interdisciplinary research and translational
medicine that integrates clinical medicine with epidemiology, immunology,
genetics, epigenetics, pharmacology and cutting edge technology in order to
understand and treat airway disease. The Center's mission is to improve our
understanding of the risk factors, natural history, biology and treatment of
asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision
insurance plans; life insurance and disability programs; paid vacation, sick
leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and
qualified family members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA
recreation and cultural activities; and more!

The University of Arizona has been recognized for our
innovative work-life programs. For more information about working at the
