Bioinformatician (Operations)

100,000 Genomes Project - Bioinformatics team - Central London!

Paramount are working in partnership with Genomics England to expand their team in order to deliver success with the 100,000 Genomes Project. This is a challenging and fast moving project with the aim to carry out whole genome sequencing on 100,000 participants and work with the NHS to launch the world's first Genomic Medicine Service.

A fantastic new opportunity has become available for a Bioinformatician to join their production/operations team to be responsible for the day-to-day running of pipelines. This opportunity would be perfect for someone with a degree in Bioinformatics (MSc or PhD) and several years' work experience in the industry (rare disease, cancer, pipeline delivery)

Your main responsibilities as a Bioinformatician will involve:
-Ensuring the smooth operations of the pipelines and troubleshoot problems when they occur
-Liaise with the development teams to report any issues and design solutions
-Provide second line support to internal customers and the research community who are using Genomics England tools
-Developing tools to aid operations and being responsible for the intake pipeline, checking incoming data

The ideal Bioinformatician should fulfil the following requirements:
-Degree in Bioinformatics (ideally MSc/PhD plus several years' industry experience)
-Strong experience running NGS analysis pipelines for large numbers of samples (cancer, rare diseases ideally)
-Confident using Python and shell scripts and ideally HPC clusters
-Familiar with databases and resources available for variant interpretation
-Proficiency in Linux and using collaborative development tools such as Github, Confluence and JIRA

Genomics England works with key partners to collect, transport, store, quality check and sequence the samples from participants. This will be a fantastic opportunity for you to take part in the biggest national genome sequencing effort of its kind anywhere in the world, bringing health benefits to UK citizens. Patients may be offered a diagnosis where there wasn't one before. In time, there is the potential of new and more effective treatments.

You'll be able to work in their brand new offices in Central London and in return you will receive competitive salary and have the opportunity to work within a successful company in a fantastic location.
