Computational Biologists and Informaticians - Oxford Nanopore Technologies, UK
We are seeking Computational Biologists and Bioinformaticians to join our rapidly growing informatics team. Oxford Nanopore is developing a new generation of DNA sequencing technology and requires team members to participate in the evaluation and development of this platform. In a competitive environment, we seek candidates who respond well to aggressive deadlines and a dynamic working environment.

Opportunities also exist to develop new sequencing applications and also any appropriate analysis tools and algorithms. We already have a number of active collaborations with leaders in the fields of genetics and genomics and our bioinformatics capability would be at the forefront of these activities.

We invite submissions for roles as programmers, software engineers, scientific data analysts and bioinformaticians. Ideal candidates will encompass areas including: R&D data analysis support, instrument system development, data management and exploitation of sequence data in the context of the latest scientific applications.

Successful applicants will be qualified to at least postgraduate level in a highly numerate discipline. Positions will vary according to experience and background. Preference is given to applicants with a track record of project delivery in industrial environments and a demonstrable ability to work to timelines and milestones.

Technical skills may include, but not be limited to,
-Programming in Perl, Python, C/C++.
-Knowledge of UNIX/Windows - strong skills in UNIX.
-High degree of numeracy and knowledge of core algorithms and analysis techniques ranging from DNA sequencing to quantitative tag based counting applications (e.g. Gene expression).
-R, Matlab, Pipeline Pilot.
-Methods in next-generation DNA sequencing, including whole-genome analyses and annotation.
-High throughput analysis pipelines and workflows.
