Day Zero Diagnostics is a bacterial genomics start-up in Boston that is seeking to recruit a highly motivated bioinformatician to join our team. At Day Zero Diagnostics we are modernizing the way infectious diseases are diagnosed and treated by developing a rapid diagnostic that sequences the genomes of pathogenic bacteria, and then uses machine learning methods to identify the cause of the clinical infection.
As a bioinformatician, you will work with a senior computational biologist to implement NGS data pipelines and microbial genomic data analysis tools. These tools will be used both to aid internal R&D projects, and to provide lab-based services for customer-facing projects. Candidates will gain experience in a multidisciplinary and fast-paced start-up environment, and will have ample opportunities to acquire new skills, work closely with an accomplished team, and communicate results through patents, conference presentations, and peer-reviewed publications while working in a supportive and energetic environment. We value intellectual curiosity and a strong work ethic, and look for candidates who are both excited to contribute their expertise and eager to broaden their skillset to new areas.
Under the direction of a senior computational biologist, the applicant independently carries out bioinformatics and software engineering tasks, including:
