The Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) is located 12 miles west of the OHSU main campus, and sits on 162 acres of land featuring forested areas, research and administration buildings, indoor and outdoor animal housing, a pond, and 2-mile perimeter walking path. Our mission is to improve human health and the quality of life through the support of nonhuman primate research programs that advance our knowledge of the causes, preventions, treatments, and cures of debilitating diseases.
The Oregon National Primate Research Center (ONPRC) is seeking a computational biologist to develop and apply methods for high-dimensional, single-cell resolution data, including single-cell RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomics. The successful applicant will join a rapidly expanding genomics research community that is using groundbreaking technologies to better understand infectious disease pathogenesis and aid vaccine development. The applicant will have the opportunity to analyze some of the first data in the world generated from a variety of platforms such as 10x Genomics, Nanostring GeoMx, Nanostring CosMX, and others. Potential projects include: characterization of viral reservoirs and sites of infection for HIV/SIV, characterization of TB pathogenesis, and study of vaccine-elicited T cells. Other projects are possible.
The applicant will ideally be able to perform self-directed exploration and analysis of complex datasets, in addition to analyses under the direction of supervisors. This position requires a hard-working, dedicated individual who has careful attention to detail. Advanced computational skills are required for data analysis and documentation. Experience or prior knowledge of immunology is not required, though is an advantage. Must interact and communicate effectively with bioinformatics and wet lab team members.
