Occasionally, I get emailed information about open positions at bioinformatics companies, so I thought I’d pass along a couple today.
First and foremost, if anyone is interested, the company I’m looking forward to starting with next week is hiring, so I’ll pass along that link: http://www.omicia.com/jobs/ There are software engineer, bioinformatics and data scientist positions available, so I suggest checking them out.
Second, for those who are a little further in their career, I understand that Caprion is looking for a director of bioinformatics as well as a biostatistician (http://www.caprion.com/en/caprion/career.php). It’s a little far outside my field, given that it’s mostly proteomics work, but I’ve heard good things about Caprion, and they’re in Montreal, which is a pretty awesome place with excellent poutine. (I’ve only spent two days there, so yes, the poutine does stand out, along with the excellent smoked meat sandwiches and a very crowded hostel… maybe it’s best if you don’t ask my advice on Montreal.)
Otherwise, I’ve also been passed a description from what appears to be a startup company looking for an “important position” with the following description:
Experience in genomic research relating to the development of novel computational approaches and tools. Preference may be given to candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: Modeling and network analysis; Molecular pathways; Systems biology; Comparative genomics; Quantitative genetics / Genomics (QTL / eQTL). Knowledge and ability of applying bioinformatics programming languages to develop and/or improve computational analysis tools (i.e. algorithms, statistical analysis).
If you’re interested, I can cheerfully pass contact information along to the right people.
