We are seeking a strong developer to join Sloan Kettering Institutes Single Cell Research Initiative (SCRI). The teams goal is to develop cutting-edge algorithms to interpret the flood of data emerging from single-cell technologies in order to explore questions in tumor heterogeneity, metastasis and the tumor-immune environment. If you would rather apply your superb programming and analytical skills towards a cancer cure than to finance and shopping carts, our dynamic multi-disciplinary team is the place for you.
SCRI is directed by computational biologist Dr. Dana Peer, a pioneer with a strong track record of developing new conceptual approaches and widely used tools in the single-cell analysis field. We collect big biological data, primarily from multi-dimensional single-cell technologies such as single-cell RNA and chromatin sequencing and high-parameter imaging. You will improve computational infrastructure and pipelines and implement algorithms that process, integrate and visualize the multiple data types, allowing data scientists, biologists and clinicians to interact with and interpret the data. A key focus is the single-cell profiling of patient samples, with the goal of improving immunotherapy and precision medicine. Join us if you want to make an impact!
As a Software Engineer, you will:
Maintain and test existing SCRI code infrastructure
Improve sample database and data intake workflows
Evaluate and compare best practices for processing and analyzing different data types
Help to implement new software features for processing, visualizing and interpreting data from multiple modalities, including from single-cell and imaging technologies
Provide consultation, guidance and training to research scientists using SCRI tools
Bachelors or Masters degree with strong machine learning/stats components, or 2+ years of programming experience;OR equivalent experience
Bioinformatics/Genomics experience and familiarity with common concepts, terminologies and software currently used in the field
Experience designing large software tools and writing efficient code
Proficiency in the testing process; ability to debug and modify code and use Git workflows
Analytical, reasoning, mathematical and problem-solving skills
Knowledge of algorithms and statistics
Proficiencyin Python (including building distributablePython modules)
At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes. For the 28th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We are proud to be on Becker’s Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2018, as well as one of Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Best Place to Work for 2018. We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
