We are looking for a Research Scientist Independent Contractor who will support the laboratory development, experimentation, and management of innovative multi-omic assays for novel applications in Oncology. Flexible hours, including evenings and weekends available.
Key Duties and Responsibilities
At our Company, you will help develop multi-omic assay technologies, SOPs, and laboratory workflows used to analyze samples. You will provide expertise in next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based analyses of DNA and other biomarkers. You will contribute to developing, optimizing, and validating clinical-grade assays to measure complex, blood-based analytes (e.g., sequencing of cfDNA). You will use your analytical, clinical, and programming abilities to identify ways to rapidly iterate and improve on existing methods, run comparative experiments on various equipment, reagents, consumables and you will work closely with computational biologists to evaluate technologies that will validate our assay in an analytical, clinical, and end-to-end test setting. You will be performing quality control and quality assurance procedures, and tracking and managing data within our LIMS and Confluence systems. You will operate under the direction of the Head of Assay Development. This role requires meticulous recordkeeping, excellent attention to detail, and the ability to multi-task and be flexible with assignments and schedules.
