We have an opening for a Bioinformatician I in the Bedford lab to work on genomic epidemiology and evolutionary analysis of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2, influenza and Ebola virus. This position will contribute to ongoing work on two major projects: Nextstrain and Seattle Flu Study.

 

Nextstrain is an award-winning tool for tracking infectious disease epidemics developed in collaboration with the Neher lab at the University of Basel. Nextstrain won the Open Science Prize in Feb 2017 and has been instrumental in analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, Ebola outbreaks, Zika spread in the Americas and is used by the World Health Organization to aid in the process of influenza vaccine strain selection.

The Seattle Flu Study is a collaboration of groups at the Brotman Baty Institute, the Fred Hutch, the University of Washington, and Seattle Children’s. Already in its third year, this study has produced high-resolution analyses of the spread of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza in Seattle by building a software platform that processes subject and sample metadata, lab assay results, and raw and processed genome data in near-real time.

Responsibilities

The role involves both development and maintenance of bioinformatic analyses and pipelines which underpin both projects’ research aims. This will involve a mixture of independent work, collaboration with scientists in the group and interactions with the wider community. The vast majority of code is open-source. Specific examples from Nextstrain include analytic pipelines that clean and ingest genome metadata, construct consensus genomes, and build phylogenetic trees, as well as tools to enable a diverse range of collaborators to run SARS-CoV-2 analyses through Nextstrain.

 

Work on Seattle Flu Study focuses on pipelines to assemble raw sequence data into consensus SARS-CoV-2 and influenza genomes and deposition of these consensus genomes to public databases.

Interfacing with project collaborators in-person and online is a key aspect of this position. The bioinformatician will work within a small team of existing members of the Bedford lab and the larger research group of the Seattle Flu Study. The Nextstrain team communicates openly about project and organizational decisions and encourages participation by all team members in the decision-making process.

  • BS degree in a Biology discipline
  • Experience with pipeline or workflow automation
  • Familiarity with software development best practices
  • Experience configuring and deploying analyses on a cloud infrastructure
  • Experience and willingness to participate in team decision-making processes

To be considered for this position:

  • Candidates must provide a coding sample by submitting it with their application.
  • The hiring team will review any programming language you choose.

The Medical Dosimetrist is responsible for developing computer generated radiation dose distributions, calculating radiation dose treatment times or monitoring unit settings to deliver prescribed radiation to a defined tumor volume as prescribed by the radiation oncologist. At the direction of the Medical Dosimetry Manager, and on a regular basis, the Dosimetrist will conduct quality assurance reviews, and conduct quality checks on various equipment. 

Responsibilities

  • Works directly with the physician in verification simulation, treatment planning procedures, and patient specific radiation dose measurements, including all electronic documentation, charting and coding in Mosaiq and patient electronic medical record (EMR). 
  • Assists medical physicist in calibration of equipment and radioactive sources. 
  • Develops computerized treatment plan, calculates treatment doses and / or monitor unit setting to deliver dose to a tumor volume as prescribed by a radiation oncologist. 
  • Calculates and documents dose in the patients MOSAIQ electronic treatment records. 
  • Verifies the mathematical accuracy of all calculations. 
  • Assists in the selection, planning, fabrication and quality review and approval of treatment devices to aid in beam delivery modification. 
  • Assists in the planning, production and quality review and approval of immobilization devices and other treatment aids. 
  • Provides technical assistance to the therapeutic radiological physicist in radiation protection. 
  • Performs weekly quality assurance checks of radiotherapy treatment charts. 
  • Follows all policies and procedures established for the accurate, timely and effective development and QA of all dosimetry responsibilities. 
  • Responsible for thorough and timely documentation and coding of work in the EMR and MOSAIQ. 
  • Implements and assists in the maintenance of the quality system for medical dosimetry and record keeping. 
  • Participates in all internal Dosimetry and multidisciplinary meeting at the center, focusing on continuous quality improvement. 
  • Participates in quality check lists as source of intra-center communication.
