Development of pipelines for genomic analysis within a cloud platform

A privately funded company in stealth mode, this university linked team is using key insights to develop a universal cloud based platform to impact the use of bioinformatics data for industrial applications including personalised medicine, drug discovery and clinical analytics.

As they look to grow their team, they are recruiting an experienced Bioinformatician to join them and provide key skills and experience in understanding, and statistical implementing genomic data used in clinical projects.


  • BSc / MSc in Maths, Informatics, or Biochemistry / Biology, and ideally a PhD.
  • Demonstrable project experience in bioinformatics and analyses of genomic data in clinical applications.
  • Experience with electronic health records.
  • Broad ranging technical skills which could include use of Python or R scripting. Experience with cloud platforms would be beneficial.
  • Experience in setting up pipelines for large-scale genomic analysis on the cloud would be highly desirable.

Due to the nature of working at a start-up, projects can be fast and varied. Good communication skills will be needed to present your ideas and impact project direction. Being technology agnostic would be useful as well as a keen aptitude to learn and develop.

Preference is for candidates based in the UK (ideally already in the Cambridge area) and available either immediately or are on a relatively short notice.
