The job you requested, Scientist - Bioinformatics/Data Scientist, is no longer available. We have found a similar job.
Veracyte is pioneering molecular cytology; we are dedicated to helping people avoid unnecessary invasive procedures just to get a diagnosis and to reducing healthcare costs at the same time. We use rigorous science to unlock genomic answers from tiny numbers of cells obtained through minimally invasive methods before surgery is needed. We launched our first product the Afirma® Thyroid FNA Analysis, with a genomic test at its core in record time and have already helped save thousands of patients from unnecessary surgery due to ambiguous thyroid nodule biopsy results. Our genomic test is offered by hundreds of physicians around the country, is covered by Medicare and private payers, and is clinically validated, including in a multicenter study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The Wall Street Journal named us to its list of top-50 venture capital-funded companies in 2011, BayBio honored us with its Fast Start award in 2012, and In Vivo: The Business and Medicine Report featured us recently as a model for how to build a molecular cytology company.
We are seeking an exceptionally talented bioinformatics scientist to join our R&D team. This individual will be responsible for the analysis of complex genomics data sets, the design of experiments and statistical analyses along with communicating data and results to audiences with a wide variety of technical expertise.
In Addition You Will Bring The Following Expertise With You
The successful candidate should be motivated by the opportunity to contribute to the discovery and development of clinically vital diagnostic tests that dramatically improve patient outcomes and quality of life. S/he should be familiar with leading edge platforms and technologies and be driven to develop new bioinformatics methods.
