About The Team
As a Molecular Biologist at Freenome, you will help develop the assay technology analyzing patient samples to contribute to our mission of early detection and intervention in human disease. As a Staff Scientist, you will be the internal subject matter expert in assay technology for the development of both existing and new or complementary techniques. You will work closely with Computational Biologists and Machine Learning specialists to rapidly iterate on improvements to the core analytical method and to evaluate new technologies that can drive improvements in our end-to-end test performance.
- Apply expert knowledge of molecular biology and biochemistry to refine existing and develop new next-generation sequencing-based assay protocols.
- Optimize protocols and workflow upstream of sequencing, including sample collection, extraction, and quantitation.
- Collaborate with Computational Biologists to evaluate the cost/benefit of integrating new molecular technologies into our analytical workflow.
- Collaborate with clinical laboratory members to transition development protocols into clinical production, including design of validation experiments and collaboration on SOP development.
