DescriptionThe Blood Biopsy Group within TGen's Center for Noninvasive Diagnostics invites
applications for a Bioinformatic and/or Computational Scientist. The goal of this position
is to lead implementation of DNA sequencing data analysis is support of academic
research projects focused on implementing cutting edge technologies such as TARDIS
for analysis of circulating tumor DNA in patients with cancer. The successful candidate
will deploy existing pipelines and develop improvements of analysis of whole genome,
whole exome and targeted sequencing data from tumor, germline and plasma DNA
samples. They will coordinate with the laboratory team to ensure successful design of
personalized assays, implementation of the project and analysis workflow, and
organization and delivery of results. The will contribute to interpretation of findings and
development of publications describing advances in genomics-enabled diagnostics.
You can learn more about TARDIS, a personalized technology for liquid biopsies,
through the manuscript and the following press releases:
Duties and Responsibilities:
