Our Autoimmune Disease Institute (ADI) houses Centers of Excellence and specialty research clinics for Rheumatic Diseases (focusing on Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, UCTD, and Sjogren’s) and for Multiple Sclerosis and related diseases. In addition to following over 4,000 patients with these conditions, teams of basic and clinical investigators conduct extensive clinical, translational and mechanistic research using samples obtained from these large clinical programs. Investigators at OMRF enjoy close scientific interactions with OUHSC faculty and participate in OUHSC graduate programs.

Our Translational Informatics group is seeking a bioinformatician to support both our clinical and basic research programs in autoimmune disease. Projects will include quality control, basic and Machine Learning analytic approaches to interpret single cell technology data from a wide range of technologies in the ADI. Technologies include but are not limited to single cell transcriptomics, single cell proteomics, spatial transcriptomics, inclusion of genetic variant information in eQTL analyses and highly multiplexed imaging technologies data including cell-distance and cell-pairing interation analyses. Systems in the division include 10X Genomics (scRNA-Seq, T-B repertoire, snATAC-Seq, Total-Seq, spatial transcriptomics), Fluidigm Helios and Hyperion mass cytometry/mass imaging, Zellkraftwerks ChipCytometry systems. Rich datasets already exist for immediate application of precision medicine and molecular phenotype classification of subjects using machine learning approaches, systems biology approaches, high content data analysis, data visualization and reporting for publications and grants, bioinformatics analyses of results from various transcriptomic/genomic assays. This position involves working both independently and as part of the translational informatics team.
