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).

This is an Extended Temporary Employment (ETE) position.

The Asthma & Airway Disease Research Centerrecognizes that flexible work arrangements can provide employees with manybenefits. As such, we are happy to offer a remote work arrangement for thisposition. This type of arrangement would allow the selected candidate to workfully remote.
