The Baker Institute for Animal Health, College of Veterinary Medicine, seeks a highly motivated Pathogen Bioinformatics and Sequencing Specialist to analyze and visualize complex data for our projects and grant proposals for the Goodman laboratory.

The Goodman laboratory studies pathogen genomics at the intersection of human and animal health. The lab’s mission is to inform public policy around infectious disease management. To achieve this goal, they study how pathogens from multiple hosts adapt to their environments to identify zoonotic potential predictors.

In this role, you will primarily work with next-generation sequencing (NGS) data used to characterize pathogens and their zoonotic risks using established software. You will have the opportunities to learn new skills from postdoctoral associates and take courses or workshops.

The responsibilities include:

  • Identifying antimicrobial resistance genes in bacterial genomes and animal samples.

  • Running programs to assign taxonomic identities to 16S/18S/ITS metagenomic data.

  • Performing wet lab experiment support for next-generation sequencing.

  • Benchwork includes spiking studies to evaluate the performance of methods under development, extracting DNA and/or RNA from various sample types, including bacterial cultures, performing conventional and real-time PCR, and performing deep sequencing using various platforms.

  • Actively maintaining all data for the lab and backup and storage of data generated on the in-house sequencing instruments and our high-performance servers.

  • Checking the quality of sequences and uploading them to NCBI with associated metadata.

This position is 39 hours per week, with some weekend hours required occasionally.

**** This is a three-year term position; reappointment will be contingent upon funding and performance.

Required Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree and 4-6years of relevant lab and/or computational experience or equivalent combination.

To be successful you will need:

  • Proficiency in running established bioinformatics software in a remotely managed Linux environment.

  • Experience with Basic molecular biology techniques such as DNA extraction and PCR, which require visual concentration and manual dexterity.

  • Fluency in MSExcel, Word, and PowerPoint.

  • Ability to multitask, keep track of projects and technical reporting timelines, and develop strong working relationships with various people.

  • Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience working with pathogen sequencing data.

  • Database experience (e.g., MS Access).

  • R programming or other statistical computing and visualization tools.

  • Familiarity with laboratory automation equipment such as liquid handlers and extraction robots.

  • Familiarity with Cornell’s ordering systems and safety policies.

What's in it for you:

  • We hope you appreciate great benefits. Cornell receives national recognition as an award-winning workplace for our health, wellbeing, sustainability, and diversity initiatives.

  • Cornell's benefits program includes comprehensive health care options, access to wellness programs, employee discounts with local and national retail brands, and generous retirement contributions.

  • Cornell's leave provisions include three weeks of vacation and 13 holidays, including end-of-year winter break from December 25 through January 1.

  • Cornell's impressive educational benefits include tuition-free Extramural Study and Employee Degree Program, Tuition Aid for external education, and Cornell Children's Tuition Assistance program.

  • Working at the College of Veterinary Medicine also comes with an active Staff Council dedicated to improving the work environment and an overall welcoming community interested in helping its members be successful.
