Bioinformatics Analyst/Scientist, R&D Good Start Genetics
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Good Start Genetics is searching for an Analyst/Scientist who will serve an integral role analyzing data generated by next-generation DNA sequencing experiments. Title will be commensurate with level of experience and independence. This position will work closely with the R&D team to efficiently convert raw data into interpretable results that inform subsequent assay development. This position reports to the Associate Director of Technology.
Work with molecular biologists to analyze results of next-generation sequencing-based experiments.
Become fully proficient in GSG?s data analysis pipeline(s), branching and modifying the codebase as necessary to perform ad hoc analyses
Maintain detailed documentation of software developed and analyses performed.
Prepare reports for peer-reviewed publication and internal use.
Work collaboratively as part of a small, interdisciplinary team of geneticists, computer scientists, and mathematicians / statisticians.
Develop new strategies for analyzing and presenting next generation DNA sequencing data.
Desire to identify novel features in large-scale data sets.
Work efficiently in a fast-paced startup environment.
MS or PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, or related discipline / experience.
Strong command of statistics and probability, and their application to quantitative analyses.
2+ years programming experience with both compiled (Java required) and interpreted (Python required) languages. Experience with other scripting and compiled languages a plus.
Experience and comfort working in a Linux/Unix environment.
Proven track record analyzing data for next-generation DNA sequencing and/or genomic analysis a strong plus.
Demonstrated ability to glean novel/key features from large-scale data sets.
Experience with gene annotation databases and genome-scale sequence manipulation
Experience performing quantitative analyses on large genomic datasets. Willingness to independently analyze results from a next-generation DNA sequencer and help molecular biologists plan follow-on experiments.
Understanding of molecular biology and human genetics / genomics highly desirable.
Willingness to work in a start up environment. Proven teamwork and leadership skills. High creativity. Excellent communication skills and attention to detail.
Industry or production next generation DNA sequencing experience (e.g., product development and commercialization) a plus, especially in the clinical diagnostics space.
