Role: Genomic Data Scientist

Looking for a number of Genomic Data Scientists to join a collaborative team who are working towards bringing genomic healthcare to all who need it, alongside enabling new scientific discovery and medical insights. This role will include investigating and develop solutions to extract more information from the genome and interpret their genome in relation to their clinical features.

Responsibilities:
- Benchmarking and fine tuning tools for quality control, processing and analysis of whole genome sequencing data
- Development of algorithms for variant prioritisation and classification
- Performing custom computational analysis
- Developing, prototyping and validating new features for genome analysis


Additional Requirements and Qualifications:
- Experience with cancer genomics (e.g., approaches to call somatic variation and interpret cancer genomes) OR human DNA analysis (rare disease genomics, family-based analysis, genetic association testing)
- Experience of WGS/NGS data
- PhD in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Systems Biology or equivalent experience
- Strong programming skills (Python, R)
