Bioinformatics Post Doc / Pipeline Developer -
This is a fantastic opportunity for a Post-Doc/PhD Graduate to join the R&D computational biology group as a Bioinformatics pipeline developer.
This exciting company aim to transform the lives of cancer patients and their families through the development of precision treatments and ground-breaking liquid biopsy technologies.
This position will be in the newly formed pipeline development team over seeing the creation and maintenance of the company's production pipelines. The candidate will work closely with the bioinformatics, software development and system administration teams to develop new pipelines into robust and scalable products. The position offers the exciting opportunity to work at the frontier of liquid biopsy-based cancer diagnostics, through entire product development pipeline from concept, clinical validation, to commercial product.
This role will require deep understanding of HPC and the analysis of NGS cancer genomics variant data and innovative algorithm design. It is expected that applicants will have prior experience in the field of bioinformatics and a solid background in pipeline development/optimisation in relation to NGS analysis (eg an MSc or PhD degree in a relevant field and/or industry experience).
Key Responsibilities Include:
Develop new and scale existing algorithms and pipelines to production ready, regulatory compliant cancer diagnostics products
Liaise with Bioinformatician's, software developers and system administers
Contribute to quality management of computational biology processes and development of systems that conform to regulatory standards
Proven track record with HPC in context of biomedical data analysis
Experience with implementing and maintaining NGS data analysis pipelines
