About Inivata

Inivata is a global clinical cancer genomics company utilising a proprietary, industry-leading liquid biopsy platform to transform patient care.  Using a simple blood test (liquid biopsy), the analysis of ctDNA is a new lower-cost, less invasive, highly sensitive method for oncologists to diagnose and monitor cancer progression and treatment.

The InVision™ liquid biopsy platform is based on pioneering research from the Rosenfeld Lab at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK-CI), University of Cambridge, combines industry-leading sensitivity with a select multi-gene panel to provide clinically actionable information to clinicians. Inivata has established collaborations with world-leading cancer centres and academic institutions, and is partnering with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.  The Company has a CLIA lab in Research Triangle Park, NC and laboratories in Cambridge, UK.

Act as an interface between lab/commercial teams and software developers to prioritise and organise projects

Contribute to quality management of computational biology processes and development of a system that conforms to regulatory standards

Provide scientific leadership by managing a team of computational scientists.



Expertise in software development, typically but not necessarily in an industry setting and knowledge of the bioinformatics field.


Skill Requirements:

Experience in constructing and running bioinformatics pipelines for high throughput sequencing datasets (Required)

Expertise in Python (required) and knowledge of R programming (Desirable)

Experience with the management of a computational team, ideally bioinformatics (Desirable)
