Senior Bioinformatician

We are seeking an experienced Senior bioinformatician to take the lead in designing and analyzing both next-generation sequencing (NGS) and third-generation sequencing (e.g., nanopore) experiments.

In this multifaceted role, you will help advance our next pipeline of designed diagnostic products by analyzing large and complex NGS and long-read data sets, developing software tools and algorithms for automated analysis pipelines, solving technical obstacles, producing rich data visualizations and written reports, and generating new ideas in collaboration with our R&D team.

You will report to the Director of Research & Development and Chief Operating Officer and will be based at the headquarters in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Key Responsibilities

  • Design and analyze NGS and nanopore sequencing experiments.
  • Build and maintain computational pipelines on a cloud-based high-performance computing environment.
  • Analyze high-dimensional data.
  • Make data-driven decisions to advance diagnostic pipelines and refine bioinformatic analysis tools.
  • Effectively communicate results with internal and external stakeholders using rich data visualizations, oral/written reports, and scientific publications.

Requirements

  • PhD in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or related field with demonstrable experience in analyzing sequencing data (both NGS and nanopore).
  • MSc degree holders will be considered if they can demonstrate significant experience.
  • Postgraduate experience in industry is a plus.
  • Experience with Python, R, Unix command line, version control systems (Git), and standard sequencing bioinformatic tools is strongly preferred.
  • Knowledge of machine learning algorithms and their application to sequencing data is strongly preferred.
  • Proficiency with statistical inference is preferred.
  • Comprehension of basic molecular biology as it pertains to human disease, primarily in cancer and/or infectious diseases.
  • Ability to work independently as well as part of a multidisciplinary team is essential.
  • Rigorous analytical and systematic troubleshooting skills.
  • Demonstration of goal-oriented, hands-on, and innovative approach to problem solving.
  • Excellent organizational and reasoning skills are a must.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills (English is our working language).‍

We offer

We offer a great career with development opportunities in a highly motivating and professional environment. You may be looking for a new career path or simply looking to contribute to a small, hard-working organization with the ambition to make a difference.

You will be offered the opportunity to spearhead the next ground-breaking diagnostic technologies involving RNA-based next-generation sequencing.

The job will be challenging and rewarding at the same time. You will have world-class colleagues, flexible working hours, and a negotiable salary commensurate to your qualifications (starting from €2500/ month).
