We are looking for an outstanding individual to help define and bring about the future of 10x Genomics. You will work closely with talented biochemists, engineers, physicians and software engineers to analyze data generated from our single-cell and spatial genomic assays. Our products have allowed researchers to study biology at unprecedented resolution and scale yielding insights in diverse fields such as cancer biology, immunology, neuroscience, developmental and basic biology.

You will apply existing computational methods and develop novel ways to analyze and understand large, multimodal, and complex datasets. Working both with internal groups and with external partners you will solve pressing translational and clinical problems by developing insights into high-resolution and high-throughput biological data. You will then communicate those results in presentations and reports. You will also contribute to the development of our software tools so that all our users can benefit from your abilities to extract information from the data generated by our assays.

You have a strong background in computational biology or bioinformatics and you have experience working with histopathologic data in addition to single cell and spatial data. You have a deep understanding of biology at the cellular and molecular level and you can interpret the results of your analyses within their biological context. You are a good programmer who can take an idea and quickly implement it in code. You are able to communicate your ideas and work effectively with an interdisciplinary team and incorporate their feedback into your analysis. You are a strategic thinker, highly motivated, proactive and flexible in changing direction and methods. You thrive in a fast paced environment, excel at managing multiple priorities, communicate clearly and get the job done.

What You Will Be Doing

* Use existing and emerging computational approaches to analyze complex multimodal datasets in order to extract clinically actionable biomarker signatures.
* Work with collaborators to dissect anatomical tissue architecture by analyzing patient-derived samples, across tissues and diseases
* Work with internal groups at 10x as well as external partners to solve problems using cutting-edge data visualization and analysis
* Communicate findings to multiple parties
* Contribute to development of 10x software tools
* Maintain and improve tools and automated analysis pipelines for diagnostic assays

Minimum Qualifications

* PhD or MS plus 4+ years of equivalent experience in a quantitative field (e.g. biology, bioinformatics, computational/systems biology, physics, mathematics, computer science)
* Experience working on problems involving complex biological systems at high-resolution
* Experience using computational methods to extract insight from large datasets
* Experience with the analysis of NGS data
* Experience with the analysis of histopathology and other types of clinically relevant data (i.e. clinical meta-data)
* Strong grounding in the state-of-the art with respect to single cell biology and computational analysis
* Ability to quickly conceive and implement custom computational methods and algorithms and apply them to large data sets
* Strong programming ability in a language such as Python or R
* Ability to work in a fast-paced and quickly changing environment
* Ability to communicate complex ideas with an interdisciplinary team
* Ability to work independently

Preferred Skills

* Creative problem solver who obsesses over finding useful biologically relevant information in data
* Experience working in an applied biological field such as immunology, tumor biology, neurobiology or similar
