Diamond Age Data Science helps fast-moving biotech and small pharmaceutical companies make the best use of publicly-available and private data by creating robust informatics systems and analyzing complex biological datasets. For fledgling companies, Diamond Age can function as a one-stop bioinformatics department, helping to answer both scientific and strategic questions (e.g., how to precisely identify mechanisms of action, where and how to store large/complex datasets, build vs. buy). For more mature companies, Diamond Age provides targeted bioinformatics services designed to fit into existing scientific strategies, with special expertise in transcriptional profiling and sequencing.

It turns out many companies need services like these, so Diamond Age is hiring. We’re looking for experienced computational biologists, whether formally trained in a MS or PhD Bioinformatics program or informally trained by extensive experience doing computational science and engineering. We offer a flexible work schedule, exciting scientific and engineering projects, and a work environment of respect and mutual support.

We’re open to remote work: You’ll be expected to participate in teleconferences and attend virtual meetings on a schedule compatible with the Eastern US time zone.

We are also hiring at multiple levels. Please see the two lists of requirements below to get a feel for what we’re looking for. We would love to speak to anyone who falls between these two sets of requirements as well. Pay is commensurate with experience.

Bioinformatics Consultant Requirements

  • PhD or MS in a scientific field, such as Bioinformatics, Biology, Chemistry, Math or Physics.
  • If formal training is not in bioinformatics / computational biology / systems biology, then extensive on-the-job experience in one of those fields.
  • R or Python programming experience and experience with reproducible research.
  • Excellent scientific communication and interpersonal skills, both verbal and written.
  • Experience with one or more of the following: NGS pipeline building, transcriptional profiling analysis for drug discovery, statistical modeling, human genetics and GWAS, variant analysis, cancer genomics.
  • Software development skills: version control, code documentation, software development cycle.
  • Authorization to work in the US.

Senior Bioinformatics Consultant Requirements

  • PhD or MS in a scientific field, such as Bioinformatics, Biology, Chemistry, Math or Physics.
  • If formal training is not in bioinformatics / computational biology / systems biology, then extensive on-the-job experience in one of those fields.
  • Extensive programming experience and experience with reproducible research. A track record of managing large, long-running scientific projects.
  • Excellent scientific communication and interpersonal skills, both verbal and written.
  • Demonstrated project management skills, whether in a formal project management role, as a team lead, or in an informal role where you were responsible for a project’s successful completion.
  • Experience with several of the following: NGS pipeline building, transcriptional profiling analysis for drug discovery, statistical modeling, human genetics and GWAS, variant analysis, cancer genomics.
  • Software development skills: version control, code documentation, software development cycle. Experience in designing, developing, deploying and maintaining production data analysis pipelines or software tools.
  • Authorization to work in the US.

We are committed to fairness in hiring and to a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage women and members of other underrepresented groups to apply.
