We seek an exceptional full-time Informatics specialist with a strong background in bioinformatics and chemoinformatics to establish an informatics group at Dice. The informatics group will be charged with storing and processing NGS (next-generation sequencing) data and developing chemoinformatics algorithms to enable directed evolution of small molecule compounds. The group will also be responsible for developing a LIMS system to interface with the NGS data. Experience with database management systems and NGS data analysis is a must. Familiarity with chemoinformatics platforms such as Knime, statistical packages like R, parallel cloud computing (e.g. AWS), and cloud laboratory APIs are preferred.
