We are looking for a senior level scientist to be the first member of our Partner Research team. As the first member of this team you will manage and advance partner research collaborations that aim to develop new insights for partners and users. This work will involve the development and implementation of scalable algorithms for prediction across population-level genomic and phenotypic data. You will also work closely with our partner scientists, bioinformaticians, and engineers to develop these new insights into features that can be delivered to our customers. This role is ideal for a scientist trained in population genetics or genetic epidemiology, with a history of independent scientific inquiry, who enjoys team science and is interested in gaining cross-functional experience in a fast moving industry environment.
As Staff or Principal Scientist, you will:
- Keep up-to-date on the latest science in scientific areas related to large scale genotype-phenotype biomarker discovery and genetic prediction.
- Prioritize and manage Partner Research opportunities
- Work directly with lead scientists from Helix’s partners to ask key scientific questions and then perform novel analyses to test these hypotheses.
- Understand partner requirements to influence Helix’s technical roadmap.
