We currently have an opening for a Bioinformatics Programmer in our cancer genomics group at Washington University in St. Louis. It's a great place to work, a fantastic place to do science, and a great opportunity for a talented coder to learn bioinformatics.

Apply through the WUSTL jobs website at, or contact me directly at

The ideal candidate has solid coding skills (python, R, etc), is proficient at the Unix shell, and has some basic data science-type skills (statistics and data visualization). A working knowledge of biology, genomics, and sequence analysis is a plus, but not a requirement.

Who we are:

  • Leaders in the field of cancer genomics - we sequenced the first whole cancer genome, were heavily involved in TCGA consortia, and now publish frequently on topics like tumor evolution, therapy resistance, and tumor immunology.

  • A cooperative group of developers building common infrastructure to support genomics at petabyte scales, both locally and in the cloud

  • Drivers of genomics technology development. We're quick to adopt new techniques (large-scale genomic sequencing, error-corrected sequencing, single-cell RNAseq, ChIP, ATAC, Bisulfite - you name it), then develop algorithms and tools to make the most of the data.

You'll be working directly with me, as well as with other members of a successful, well funded, and highly collaborative group of researchers here at WUSTL. Our broad goal is to understand the origins and progression of cancer, and translate that knowledge into better treatments.

Sure, you could join an ad-tech firm, but wouldn't you rather work on something that matters? Come be a part of our team!
