Principal Bioinformatics Scientist I
Company: F. Hoffmann-La Roche Gruppe
Location: Santa Clara
Posted on: April 2, 2021
You will join a group of Scientists in our--Bioinformatics
Research and Early Development--team dedicated to building
innovative products and approaches for the analysis and
interpretation of next-generation sequencing data. The science of
interpreting the human genome is an exciting work in progress.
Next-generation sequencing and genomic technologies are providing
us with unprecedented visibility into the origins of health and
disease. However, the main challenge is enabling the analysis,
management and interpretation of massive datasets being produced by
scientists and researchers around the world. We know the ability to
analyze and manage these datasets will revolutionize how we
diagnose disease, develop drugs, and treat patients, especially in
complex cases such as cancer. With a strong interdisciplinary
knowledge in science and technology, we are elevating the speed and
quality of genomic analysis, bringing us one step closer to
solutions that will change and save lives. The Bioinformatics
Research and Early Development team--is part of Roche Sequencing
and located in Santa Clara, California. Position Summary: We are
seeking a committed and driven Bioinformatics Scientist for our
Bioinformatics Research and Early Development team. We have a team
