Location: Silver Spring,  MD    USA
Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis, and this posting will remain open until filled.

A research opportunity is currently available in the Office of Biostatistics and Epidemiology (OBE) at the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The participant will be working on the development of an analytical framework for the development of machine learning (ML) models to predict phenotypes based on genomic variation data. Our team is working on multiple bioinformatics project that range from viral mutational scans, where ML models can be applied to predict epitopes, to human cancer data where ML models can be applied to predict treatment outcomes. All ML models are based on genomic variation data. The candidate will be working on a framework we built that solves common challenges across these cases. The selected participant will use tools developed internally, as well as open source and third-party genomics software, to create ML models to analyze genomic and immunological data.

Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will be involved in the following activities: •Identify, import and quality check high throughput sequencing (HTS) datasets •Design, develop and maintain bioinformatics protocols and pipelines •Develop machine learning models and algorithms on genomics and immunological data •Analyze scientific data to validate ML models •Communicate scientific results and interpretation to a diverse audience, including senior FDA scientists, collaborators, and internal stakeholders

Anticipated Appointment Start Date: February 2022; start date is flexible
