Genomics Core Staff Research Associate

DESCRIPTION

The Stem Cell Genomics Core (SCGC) Facility is a shared service, multi-investigator laboratory staffed by one Staff Research Associate and one Core Director. It is used by an increasing number of researchers who pays recharge costs to the facility. The Genomics Core facility hosts activities centered on improved sample preparation and secondary validation of sequencing results and is a cornerstone of UCSD Stem Cell Genomics. It provides services that do not overlap the services of the BioGem Core, but instead help maximize the usefulness of BioGem and other cores by developing technical solutions to processing bottlenecks. It fosters and promotes Genomics research at UCSD and partner institutes of the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine. The facility promotes Genomics research and the use of genomics data in a wide range of basic science and applied fields by developing methods that enable biological and cell scientists to harness the power of genomics data. The facility sustains ongoing research projects and allows the proposal of new projects necessitating such facilities. The facility provides services at the new Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine building on North Torrey Pines.

The Staff Research Associate I (SRA) assists the SCGC Director in the execution of protocols on specialized equipment for genomics, single cell analysis, sequence processing, data management, secondary validation, and improvement of throughput for stem cell and research. The SRA carries out protocols for single-cell RNA sequencing library preparation (10X Genomics), digital multiplex gene expression assay (NanoString), MiSeq sequencing sample denaturation, and other general wet-lab equipment.

The SRA assists with library preparation for next generation sequencing, operates and troubleshoots mid throughput sequencers. The SRA assists with the organization and storage of DNA/RNA samples and corresponding data sets. The SRA assists with troubleshooting nucleic acid quality issues for qPCR and sequencing experiments, maintains cleanliness/safety of the lab, and performs routine maintenance on instruments. The SRA supports the orientation of Core users and the scheduling of experiments. The SRA performs primary data analysis and has functional knowledge of basic programming to assist in the transfer of large data sets to servers and data analysis pipelines. The SRA works under close supervision and direction of the SCGC Director to facilitate and encourage usage of the Stem Cell Genomics Core. The SRA applies working knowledge of genomics and cell biology to experimental design and data analysis.
