The Research Computing Center invites you to join our team.

Open Positions:

The Research Computing Center regularly hires Computational Scientists who have expertise in high-end computing and a specific discipline. Computational Scientists serve as domain experts in supporting and advising faculty, post-docs, and graduate students on a wide range of research projects. They support faculty research projects, understand faculty’s research questions, and contribute to finding solutions and implementing them. Working as part of an existing talented team, you will have ample opportunity to contribute to enabling science at the University of Chicago, develop and deliver training, and other activities designed to advance research.

Computational Scientist-Bioinformatics

The Research Computing Center and the Chevrier Lab at the Pritzker School for Molecular Engineering are looking for a highly motivated Computational Scientist to work closely with faculty and researchers at the University of Chicago. The successful candidate will play a key role in characterizing and engineering the immune system in health and disease by working with the Chevrier Lab and in collaboration with researchers and clinicians at the University of Chicago and beyond. Emphasis will be to (i) generate new biological insights by developing new approaches to analyzing large-scale and high-throughput data (e.g., next-generation sequencing, high-throughput screening), (ii) maintain, upgrade and train users on existing pipelines in the lab, and (iii) develop new pipelines as needed.

Computational Scientist-Computational Biology

The Research Computing Center (RCC) at the University of Chicago seeks a highly motivated Computational Scientist-Computational Biology that will support the Program in Computational Biology (PCB), lead by Matthew Stephens in the Department of Human Genetics, with implementing novel computational and statistical methods for analysis of biological data. The PCB is a group of faculty, students, and postdoctoral researchers at the University of Chicago who work on problems related to computational biology. The person in this role will serve as a bridge between research groups, and a technical domain expert in supporting and advising PCB members on computational aspects of their research as well as how to use all the RCC resources available to them. The successful candidate will join a team of computational scientists who are playing a key role in enabling research at the University of Chicago.
