OPEN ROLES

Leadership roles in Statistical Genetics and Bioinformatics

The use of extensive genetic information will transform healthcare over the next decade. Genomics plc is seeking senior statistical geneticists to design and implement novel approaches to making inferences from large-scale data. The successful candidates will lead on improving health and healthcare through applied analysis of the relationship between genetic and biomedical data. At Genomics, you will work with leading scientists and a talented technical team, to deliver cutting-edge science in genome analytics.

You should have proven experience of leading teams to analyze genome-wide genetic variation in the context of understanding human biology and disease. Your skills will allow you to summarize and visualize large datasets to look for patterns of association, or potential biases.  As part of our scientific leadership you should be confident in applying standard statistical approaches, driving the development of novel computational tools, and to leading and mentoring team members. You will be able to discuss and explain complex ideas to both specialists and non-specialists. Given the sensitive nature of data used in Genomics plc you will be expected, as with all other employees, to ensure high standards of information security in your work.

Genomics plc is working to use genomic data to transform healthcare, from the diagnosis of familial disease to the optimal choice of cancer treatment and the identification of new pharmaceutical targets.  Following a substantial funding we are looking to grow from its current position of 30 employees.

The positions are suitable for an individual with a strong quantitative background, preferably statistics, and with experience in genetics or genomics. If you enjoy thinking creatively about challenging problems in an applied clinical and health care setting, this job is for you.

Senior Scientist in Electronic Medical Record Analytics

We are seeking an exceptional candidate to drive the genomic analysis of electronic medical records (EMRs). You will be developing and applying innovative machine learning and data science approaches to combine genomic information with routine health-care data to uncover relationships in human biology and disease. You will help to build up knowledge of the systems, ontologies and use practices of EMRs across health care systems that are engaged in large-scale genomic data collection.  You will lead the development of digital phenotyping approaches for establishing robust clinical interpretation that capture primary disease and features such as disease subtype, progression and response to treatment.  You will work with statisticians to develop approaches for the genetic interpretation of disease phenotypes obtained from EMR, combining information on both common and rare genetic variation.  You will be passionate about the opportunity of genetics to transform healthcare.

Requirements:

  • Experience in developing, validating and applying algorithms for capturing disease state from EMRs and measuring features such as subtype, progression and response to treatment
  • Understanding of the major EMR systems in use throughout Europe and the USA, health-care coding systems and ontologies (e.g. ICD10, SNOMED CT, HPO) and real-life understanding of heterogeneity in and biases arising from use practices
  • Exceptional data science skills with practical experience of using machine-learning techniques to capture structure within EMR data
  • An understanding of the scientific questions which arise from the genomic analysis of EMR data, including clinical genomic interpretation, disease-gene discovery and pharmacogenetic analysis
  • Strong reputation, mostly likely gained within the academic community, for novel and insightful analyses which make a difference to the science
  • The ability to lead work at the interface between genomics and the scientific problems to which it can be addressed
  • PhD in data science or a related discipline
  • Strong communication skills.
  • Given the sensitive nature of data used in Genomics plc you will be expected, as with all other employees, to ensure high standards of information security in your work.

 

In return we offer:

  • The opportunity to work in an ambitious start up – alongside highly talented colleagues – that combines cutting-edge research with commercial delivery
  • Unprecedented access to data – the chance to work with one of the largest and fastest-growing genome-phenotype databases in the world as well as many of the largest genomic projects in the world
  • Varied challenges targeted at real problems facing the healthcare industry, using novel tools and approaches that will radically change our understanding of human disease
  • The chance to contribute to work that will have a direct impact on people and disease treatment
  • A competitive salary, with pension, private healthcare and other benefits
