Fast-paced startup company based in Texas with novel sequencing technology seeks motivated next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysts to analyze data and assist in the development of software products for our novel NGS platform. Successful candidates will have experience in NGS data production & analysis, preferably including short-read sequence alignment and variant calling. Multiplatform analysis experience is a plus.
Work with a cross-functional team of scientists, software developers, and engineers to develop a novel NGS platform. Apply, maintain, and support cutting-edge pipelines for the analysis and interpretation of NGS data from sequence production to variant calling and interpretation. Analyze large-scale genomic datasets acquired internally and through collaboration with others. Participate in the technical development process of an emerging NGS platform. Apply state-of-the-art computational methods, and assist in the development of innovative approaches to software challenges that touch all aspects of NGS data analysis. Ensure that application of software tools adheres to regulatory controls for medical diagnostic software packages. Maintain expertise in the science and application of genomic technologies, and stay aware of emerging trends in NGS analysis processes. Education Requirements and experience:
Master’s degree (or similar years of experience) in bioinformatics, genetics, or computer science, or similar with: A minimum of 1 year industrial/university (genome sequencing center) experience in the field of NGS data analysis Experience with and an understanding of alignment, BAM processing and variant calling tools used in NGS analysis best practices. Required skill sets:
Familiarity with C++ and/or Java & Python and/or Perl R/Matlab/Mathematica Experience with software development on Linux or windows
