PacBio's R&D team performs hundreds of experiments a month, comparing and contrasting different chemistry and software configurations in order to optimize our DNA sequencing platform. To help the scientists easily identify the differences between experimental conditions, we've built a web portal that can provide quick summary statistics and plots of a large swath of features of interest.
We need help to build out the analysis backend component of this tool, so we are looking for a strong R programmer with general software engineering experience and strong statistical acumen.
PacBio is a very exciting place for people with strong scientific curiosity!
-Maintaining, and innovating on, our in-house R APIs to enable scientists to easily analyze experiments.
-Writing R APIs to wrap existing C++ APIs.
-Helping to design new experiments and analyze results.
