    Submitted by Shannon Swan; posted on Saturday, February 06, 2021


    LifeMine Therapeutics, Inc. is the first biotechnology company exploiting the unique ability of fungi to produce powerful drugs optimized through billions of years of evolution and deploying these molecules for the treatment of intractable human diseases via novel biological mechanisms. The company is using a genome mining approach to mount a massive search for novel drugs through the fungal biosphere. With operations in Cambridge and Gloucester, Massachusetts, LifeMine brings a unique approach to its revolutionary scientific and medical mission.


    We are seeking an exceptionally motivated and talented senior bioinformatics engineer to join our Genomics Discovery team. You will be responsible for developing a large-scale database of genome annotation in AWS, which will include implementing and executing cloud-based bioinformatics pipelines, building and deploying data resources and web interfaces to enable colleagues to access and visualize genomic data, and managing the lifecycle of the data. These efforts will enable LifeMine's proprietary fungal genomic drug discovery platform. To succeed, you will need intellectual curiosity, a focus on data-driven solutions, and a collaborative work ethic.
    • Implement and maintain databases for storing and manipulating high volumes of genomic data
    • Create and manage cloud computing based bioinformatics workflows
    • Develop and deploy web interfaces for genomic data interpretation and visualization
    • Create data-lifecycle and versioning best practice procedures for genomic and related data
    • Follow and champion software development best practices


    • Master's in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Computational Biology or a related field with 3+ years of experience in the bioinformatics or genomics space or Ph.D. with 1-2 years of relevant experience
    • Proficiency in at least one major scripting language (Python, R, or similar)
    • Proficiency in relational database development (Postgres, MySQL, or similar)
    • Web development experience in HTML/CSS/jQuery
    • Experience with cloud computing (AWS or GCP) and dev-ops (Github, Docker, etc.)
    • Data visualization and analysis experience
    • Familiarity with publicly available genomics resources
    • Experience with assembly and annotation of non-model genomes is a plus
    • Experience with webApollo, JBrowse and Geneious and parsing common genomics file formats like Genbank, GFF3, would also be a strong positive
    • Ability to work effectively in a multidisciplinary team and communicate results clearly to peers and leadership
    • A sense of adventure and excitement to be part of the development of a new drug discovery paradigm
