In this role you will support the Development and Demonstration activities of Genomics England through the comprehensive analysis of (largely) sequence data sets from a variety of platforms. The position is based in Cambridge with some London based working required.

Your main responsibilities will involve:

You must meet the following requirements:

*Experience of comparing NGS data sets
*Experience with handling large data sets and setting pipelines
*Strong programming skills (Python, R); ability to develop codes as a part of team
*Practical knowledge and understanding of basic statistical tests
*A demonstrable ability to cope under pressure and deliver to deadlines
*Ability to communicate effectively within multidisciplinary teams and with others from other non bioinformatic disciplines
*Flexible and co-operative approach to colleagues
*Ability to work independently and to show initiative within a team
*Ability to prioritise and balance competing demands
Genomics England works at the cutting edge of science, technology and healthcare. Our mission is to deliver the ground-breaking 100,000 Genomes Project − the biggest national genome sequencing project of its kind anywhere in the world. As it moves beyond the 100,000 Genomes Project, Genomics England will work with NHSE to launch the world's first Genomic Medicine Service within a national healthcare system. In partnership with government, the NHS, academia, industry and the public, Genomics England aims to realise the potential of genomic medicine: to embed state-of-the-art care in the NHS; bring health benefits to UK citizens; and consolidate the UK's position as the 'go to' destination for international genomic research and investment.

There are some great benefits on offer with this role including a competitive salary, pension, generous holidays and more.
