Bioinformatician

This is an opportunity to join a fast-paced Oxford University Spin-out on their mission to enhance crops to feed the world more sustainably and promote a more biodiverse and wilder planet. This Bioinformatician role will significantly contribute to the genetic design R&D projects developing novel computational biology tools and providing bioinformatics support across multiple experimental pipelines.

•             Join a truly novel, spin-out within the sustainable crop space.

•             Work as part of a small close-knit collaborative and ambitious team with excellent values.

•             Join the company at a pivotal point contributing to development and progression.


What you'll be doing:

  • Contribute to the fast-paced team of scientists carrying out novel computational biology research combining molecular biology and plant science.
  • Collaborate as part of the genetic design pipeline developing novel computational biology tools.
  • Implement and maintain meaningful bioinformatics support across a vast range of experiments; establishment of robust data processing pipelines and reporting these findings to peers and management teams.
  • Managing systems to build robust databases and maintain proprietary code.
What experience you will need to apply:

  • PhD or MSc experience in computational biology, bioinformatics, or similar with understanding of experimental molecular biology approaches. Or experience in relevant experimental discipline with demonstrable, direct experience developing and maintaining bioinformatic workflows.
  • Academic or Industrial experience of analysis of high throughput sequencing, ideally including understanding of the molecular methods used to generate DNA and RNA sequencing data (both long and short read datasets), data preparation, and running the latest analysis tools. Also familiar with public genomics repositories.
  • Applied stats and machine learning expertise, a firm understanding of latest methods and applications for machine learning approaches to understand and build reports from large datasets.
  • Proficiency with bash scripting and high-level scientific languages (Python, R). Familiarity with C is also desirable.
  • Experience with data and systems management including architecting and working with cloud-based solutions and locally run linux and/or windows servers.
What you’ll get in return for your experience:

To be part of a muti-disciplinary team contributing across multiple projects to improve crop yield, planet wilding and overall food sustainability.

Salary £38,000 - £50,000 base pay depending on experience. Share options available.

Hybrid work with 2/3 days per week in South Oxford office.
