A well-established biotech company is looking for a talented bioinformatics scientist to join their genomics screening team and help develop and grow their platform.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Play a key role in developing new workflows and strategies to improve the process.

  • Design and execute analysis tasks, principally around NGS-based screening data.

  • Apply appropriate statistical tests to interpret experimental data accurately and precisely.

  • Interact and collaborate with biologists and bioinformaticians in the team.

  • Document and communicate analytical findings clearly to colleagues and senior leadership.

Essential experience:

  • PhD in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics or Computational Chemistry or relevant.

  • Expertise in the analysis of NGS-derived data (amplicon based, ideally) covering QC, handling, processing & interpretation.

  • Experience of working with 'omics platforms (genomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics, proteomics).

  • Excellent knowledge of R or/and Python.

  • Excellent communication skills and ability to disseminate complex data to a non-expert.

Desired Skills:

  • Experience analysing pooled functional genomic screening data (e.g. shRNA, CRISPR).

  • Experience of machine learning, graph modelling, artificial-intelligence, Bayesian analytics or other non-traditional approaches to model biological data.

  • Experience in pattern recognition or modelling of synthetic biology networks.

  • Experience in handing protein structure data and tools used in structural bioinformatics.
