Bioinformatician

About Us

Concr is an emerging predictive software platform built to combat cancer. Concr combines cutting edge machine learning techniques with deep scientific understanding of tumour progression to accurately predict cancers evolution in response to treatment. This will enable clinicians to adapt treatments proactively, rather than reactively, to prevent treatment resistance and improve treatment efficacy through precision medicine.

Concr aims to:

• Reduce treatment resistance

• Cut cost of cancer treatment

• Enable proactive treatment adaptation

• Save lives

As such, we are looking to hire a bioinformatician. In this role, you will be responsible for processing and analysing the biological data that Concr uses. These data parcels consist of varied multi-omic sequencing, including spatial-omics, imaging data, clinical and preclinical data. You may also develop custom algorithms to model different aspects of biology. You will work with a broad team of software engineers, computational scientists, bioinformaticians, and research clinicians to produce work that will be directly commercialised.

To ensure success as a bioinformatician, you should have a good experience of analysing a broad range of biological data, in particular spatial-omics data.

Responsibilities

• Processing, analysing and validating various data-parcels that Concr uses to build its models

• Communicating learnings and understandings about the specific considerations of different data parcels

• Preparing materials to communicate scientific work achieved by the technical team.

Requirements

• MSc/PhD in bioinformatics or similar field.

• Experience in scientific/numerical Python ecosystem

Highly Favourable Skills

• Experience publishing first author research papers

• Bayesian inference and statistics

• Experience with statistical modelling
