About the role

Computational Biologist – Applications

We are looking for an outstanding individual to join our Computational Biology group. You will work closely with talented biochemists, microfluidics engineers, chemists and software engineers to analyze data generated from our single-cell and spatial genomic assays. Our products have allowed researchers to study biology at unprecedented resolution and scale yielding insights in diverse fields such as cancer biology, immunology, neuroscience, developmental and basic biology.

You will apply existing computational methods and develop new ways to analyze and understand large, multimodal, and complex datasets. Working with our R&D group and with external partners you will solve problems by developing insights into high-resolution and high-throughput biological data. You will then communicate those results in presentations and reports.

You will also contribute to the development of our software tools so that all our users can benefit from your abilities to extract information from the data generated by our assays.

You have a strong background in computational biology or bioinformatics and you have experience working with single cell and/or spatial data. You have a deep understanding of biology at the cellular and molecular level and you can interpret the results of your analyses within their biological context. You are a good programmer who can take an idea and quickly implement it in code. You are able to communicate your ideas and work effectively with an interdisciplinary team and incorporate their feedback into your analysis. You are a strategic thinker, highly motivated, proactive and flexible in changing direction and methods. You thrive in a fast paced environment, excel at managing multiple priorities, communicate clearly and get the job done.

 

What you will be doing:

Use existing and novel computational approaches to analyze complex single cell and spatial datasets

Work with internal groups at 10x as well as external partners to solve problems with data analysis

Communicate findings to multiple parties

Contribute to 10x software tools

 

Minimum Qualifications:

PhD or MS plus equivalent experience in a quantitative field (e.g. biology, bioinformatics, computational/systems biology, physics, mathematics, computer science)

Experience working on problems involving complex biological systems at high-resolution

Experience using computational methods to extract insight from large datasets

Experience with the analysis of NGS data

Strong grounding in the state-of-the art with respect to single cell biology and computational analysis

Ability to quickly conceive and implement custom computational methods and algorithms and apply them to large data sets

Strong programming ability in a language such as Python or R

Ability to work in a fast-paced and quickly changing environment

Ability to communicate complex ideas with an interdisciplinary team

Ability to work independently

 

Preferred Skills:

Creative problem solver who obsesses over finding useful biologically relevant information in data

Experience working in an applied biological field such as immunology, tumor biology, neurobiology or similar
