With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup.

We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. 

We are seeking a highly motivated and capable bioinformatics scientist with extensive experience and interest in translational cancer research and genomics algorithm development. This position requires experience with scientific programming, relational data systems, algorithm development, and statistical modeling.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Design, develop, validate and implement predictive algorithms which leverage molecular, clinical and imaging data inputs to generate novel insights.
  • Translate insight from model systems into predictors and classifiers of therapeutic response and prognosis in clinical cancer care.
  • Collaborate with scientists, and clinicians to design and perform analyses on cancer clinical sequencing data in order to improve quality of care.
  • Work in interdisciplinary groups of scientists, engineers, and product developers to translate research into clinically actionable insights for our clients.
  • Produce high quality and detailed documentation for all projects.
  • Develop and implement rigorous testing and validation infrastructure to support the use of predictive algorithms in clinical care.

Required Experience:

  • Ph.D. in Cancer Biology, Molecular Biology or a related field
  • Computational skills using Python and R.

  • Strong background in the development of statistical models

About Tempus:

We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. We're looking for software engineers who are passionate about changing the status quo and bringing cancer care into the 21st century.
