    Opportunity: Bioinformatician @ Genomics England -- Cambridge, UK
    Submitted by Eugene Mc Daid; posted on Friday, June 01, 2018



    100,000 Genomes Project – Bioinformatics – Cambridge!

    Paramount are working in partnership with Genomics England to expand their team in order to deliver success with the 100,000 Genomes Project. This is a challenging and fast moving project with the aim to carry out whole genome sequencing on 100,000 participants.

    A fantastic new opportunity has become available for a Bioinformatician to join their offices in Hinxton to support the R&D lab with development and demonstration activities of Genomics England through the comprehensive analysis of large sequence data sets from a variety of platforms.


    Your main responsibilities as a Bioinformatician will be:
    • Performing computational analyses for a range of D & D projects
    • Comparing tools and pipelines for NGS analysis
    • Informing on the design and implementation of new features for sequencing data analysis


    The ideal Bioinformatician should meet the following requirements:
    • MSc or PhD in Bioinformatics or related discipline
    • Solid skills set in Bioinformatics and experience of working as a Computational Biologist
    • Practical knowledge of NGS algorithms and available resources for cancer bioinformatics
    • Experience of comparing NGS data sets
    • Strong programming skills (Python, R)
    • Basic statistical skills


    You'll be able to work in their office in Cambridge and in return you will receive competitive salary and have the opportunity to work within a successful company in a fantastic location.


    Genomics England works with key partners to collect, transport, store, quality check and sequence the samples from participants. The aim for this project is to create a new genomic medicine service for the NHS – transforming the way people are cared for. Patients may be offered a diagnosis where there wasn't one before. In time, there is the potential of new and more effective treatments.


    If you'd like to know more and are interested in applying, please contact Anna on alauterjung[at] or +44 (0) 121 616 3469 with an up-to-date CV. Look forward to hearing from you!
