Default Opportunities at Oxford Nanopore Technologies, UK

We are seeking a highly motivated and dynamic individual to join our rapidly growing informatics team, to lead the development of the the software and computing subsystem of our revolutionary DNA sequencer. The candidate will be required to work to aggressive timelines within an agile development process.

Successful candidates will have a background in developing embedded computing solutions for high-end DSP or related HPC devices. This includes instrument control and the evaluation and architecting of hardware/software and any relevant interfaces. The role requires close collaboration with hardware engineers on the total design and implementation of the sensor system(s).

We are looking for an individual who has led small teams of programmers on successful projects demanding data processing and real-time control devices or systems. Candidates will be experienced in leading projects including :
-Agile software development practices and a thorough knowledge of software design patterns and development methodologies.
-Programming in C/C++ (and derivatives), Perl, Python, VHDL, Erlang.
-Algorithm design and efficient implementation.
-Embedded systems development.
-Numerical methods and signal processing techniques.
-MatLab, R and LabView.

Candidates with a background in developing high performance sensing devices for biological applications (such as DNA sequencing, Mass Spectrometry etc) will be considered favourably.

Default Scientific Data Analyst

We are recruiting a Data Analyst to join our rapidly expanding informatics team, to participate in the development of our revolutionary DNA sequencing system.

This role will involve analysis and interpretation of data sets derived during the development and optimisation of our DNA sequencing platform (and its derivatives).

The candidate should be a highly numerate individual, with the ability to manage large data sets, apply a wide range of appropriate analyses, develop ad-hoc software tools and most importantly, the ability to communicate complex numerical and statistical issues across all functional domains within the entire development project.

Successful candidates will be qualified to postdoctoral level in a numerate discipline such as statistics, applied mathematics or physics. He/she will have a proven track record of supporting complex multi-disciplinary development projects within an industrial setting. Preference will be given to experience of product development or process development. Technical leadership skills, as well as proven team working, will also be valued.

Default Scientific Programmers (Instrument Software)

We are recruiting scientific programmers to join our rapidly expanding informatics team, to participate in the development of our revolutionary DNA sequencing system.

This role will develop the analysis and control software (and other peripherals) associated with the DNA sequencing platform. Particular challenges involve efficient signal processing, run-time automation, real-time control and critically, the encapsulation of all of these functions on a cost-effective embedded computing system.

Successful candidates will have a proven track record in scientific instrument software or analysis pipeline development within a dynamic industrial environment. Skills may include but be limited to :
-Programming in C/C++, Perl Python, D, Erlang in a goal oriented way.
-Agile software development practices.
-UNIX and FPGA/GPU/SIMD programming.
-Close and positive interactions with engineers.
-Algorithm design and optimisation.

Default Molecular Modeller

A high-calibre molecular modeller is sought to work with our informatics and nanopore chemistry teams. The candidate will be responsible for furnishing molecular modeling results and hypotheses to co-workers who are developing a nanopore-exonuclease construct (The ‘Exopore’ group). The candidate should be able to communicate complex molecular information in a clear and articulate manner.

The role will involve the use of molecular dynamics simulations, free energy calculations, QM and QM/MM calculations on biological systems, familiarity with Linux HPC clusters and some programming skills.

Default Principal Applications Scientist - Oxford Nanopore Technologies, UK

We seek a senior level scientist who has pioneered new applications development on current next-generation sequencing platforms. This means both theoretical knowledge and practical experience of novel experimental design, appropriate sample prep methodologies (DNA isolation, fragmentation etc) and appropriate analysis leading to new ways of measuring biological phenomena.

Typically a geneticist or genomicist who has worked as part of a multi-disciplinary sequencing team encompassing the whole experimental cycle from sample collection through to high quality publication, the ideal candidate needs to be an innovative thought-leader and scientific risk taker, probably also having links to other key people in the field. He/she will also have done or supervised some bioinformatics work, or have links to clinical or translational environments.

The candidate needs to be able to communicate credibly with senior laboratory personnel at leading research institutes, about how a sequencer might fit into their current or future scientific environment. Yet they also need to be able to communicate effectively with ground-level scientists who will use the machine, and develop robust experimental protocols applicable to use in the wider broad access research community.
