    Opportunity: Senior Bioinformatics Scientist, PhD level @ An exciting R&D start-up biotech -- Cambridge, MA (US)
    Submitted by Eugene Mc Daid; posted on Saturday, April 13, 2019



    We are currently supporting the growth of an exciting R&D start-up biotech in Cambridge! This talented team are providing services to develop and optimize unique solutions for DNA and RNA preparation for challenging research, agricultural, clinical and other genomic and genetic applications.

    The company are testing and validating novel methods in DNA and RNA protocols and implementing DNA and RNA workflows for automation for both internal and external projects with collaborators.

    There most recent work has been in leading the development of new technology to advance target enrichment for next generation sequencing, which captures the strengths of both traditional hybridization- and PCR-based strategies. This has been incredibly successful and they have now developed an easily-automatable one-day target enrichment workflow which can scale from one gene to many with exceptional specificity and uniformity.

    We are looking for a Ph.D. level Senior Bioinformatics Scientist to join the team and contribute to upcoming projects.


    • Working with bioinformaticians, CSO and Engineers to take on theoretical problems and create practical solutions
    • Developing novel computational solutions in support of the Product Development and Contract Services teams
    • Analyzing sequencing data to assess the quality of experimental data
    • Provide results to research and production teams, analyses and visualization for presentations, publications, and marketing materials
    • Using existing analysis pipelines and/or developing new pipelines to provide insight into new technology development
    • Developing and maintaining in-house software and computational tools
    • Contribute to drafting papers, publications, and patent applications
    • Managing project timelines and ensuring project deadlines are met


    • Ph.D. in physics, mathematics, bioinformatics, computational science, or a related field
    • 2-3 years of post-doc experience from a biotechnology company or academia
    • Previous experience developing computational solutions to address challenging biological problems
    • Demonstrated ability with several programming languages such as: Java, Scala, C++, Python, R, Unix
    • Experience with cloud computing, preferably Amazon Web Services
    • Experience with AgBio desired


    Please don't hesitate to contact Jade to arrange a discussion, you can apply to this advert or send your resume through to jpage[at] We are hoping to arrange interviews in the next 1-2 weeks.
