Fast-paced small startup company in Texas with novel sequencing technology seeks motivated next-generation sequencing (NGS) analyst/developers to analyze data and develop software products for our new NGS platform. Successful candidates will have 3+ years of experience in NGS data production & analysis and will have contributed to the development of novel or custom NGS analysis software. Experience must include short-read sequence alignment and variant calling; image analysis and base-calling experience a plus.
Work with a cross-functional team of scientists, software developers, and engineers to develop a novel NGS platform. Build 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. Implement state-of-the-art computational methods, and develop innovative approaches to software challenges that touch all aspects of NGS data analysis. Ensure that software adheres to regulatory controls for medical diagnostic software packages. Maintain expertise in the science and application of genomic technologies. Education Requirements and experience:
Doctorate degree (or similar years of experience) in bioinformatics, genetics, or computer science, or similar with: A minimum of 3 years industrial/university (genome sequencing center) experience in the field of NGS bioinformatics algorithms/software development Experience with and an understanding of alignment, BAM processing, and variant calling tools used in NGS analysis best practices. Required skill sets:
C++ and/or Java & Python and/or Perl R/Matlab/Mathematica Experience with software development on Linux or windows
