We are seeking exceptional Data Scientists interested in the challenge of developing state of the art personal risk prediction algorithms that build on Genomics plc’s data engine. As a Precision Health Data Scientist, you will integrate diverse genomics and environmental data to make precision health care a reality. While a background in genetics or risk prediction is not required, an interest in learning about genetics, and how to solve big problems in healthcare is a must.

You should have:

  • A strong quantitative background, and most likely a PhD, in a STEM subject
  • Experience with scientific programming languages, either Python or R.
  • Proven experience of learning from large-scale data sets in a scientific or engineering context.
  • The ability to summarize and visualize complex datasets to look for patterns and potential biases
  • The ability to discuss and explain complex ideas to both specialists and non-specialists.
  • Working knowledge of risk prediction and survival analysis
  • The ability to understand complex concepts from outside your own field.

In return we offer:

  • The opportunity to work alongside talented colleagues in a growing company that combines a focus on cutting-edge science with commercial delivery.
  • The chance to do work that directly benefits healthcare, and improves people’s lives.
  • Access to amazing data – the chance to work with one of the largest and fastest-growing genotype-phenotype databases in the world.
  • Dedicated time for hacking on blue sky projects and research.
  • A competitive salary with pension, private healthcare, share options and other benefits.

Given the sensitive nature of data used in Genomics plc you will be expected, as with all other employees, to ensure high standards of information security in your work.
