Student Workers Needed in Bioinformatics Core

Three to five student-worker positions are needed in the Bioinformatics Core under Dr. Michael Hu at the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Cell Biology.

The positions are paid at $10 an hour through the end of June 2020 with a possibility of extensions based on performance. Students are expected to commit 15 to 20 hours a week while classes are in session.

Students will receive training and explore genomics data analysis on the topics of RNA-Seq, ATAC-Seq, ChIP-Seq, Microbiome, WGS, MicroRNA and Exome sequencing. They are expected to apply the analysis skills to address specific biology questions from sequencing data generated by the WVU community.

Junior and senior undergraduate students in biology, computer science, engineering, mathematics or physics with programming experience are encouraged to apply. Students in the biology background but a strong motivation to learn programing will also be considered. Students should have already taken some classes related to statistics, genomics or the Software Carpentry Workshop (see here for the next available session). Students should have a strong motivation to learn bioinformatics, be able to operate independently and plan their career toward genomic data science or related fields.

For those who are interested, please contact Dr. Hu at with any questions.
