Bioinformatics Scientist I at Atreca
Redwood City, CA, US
Atreca seeks a bioinformatics scientist to generate insights into immuno-oncology through analysis of precise, comprehensive antibody and T cell receptor repertoire data generated using Atreca’s Immune Repertoire Capture™ (IRC™) technology. Your knowledge of molecular immunology, statistics, and bioinformatics will be used to elucidate how the immune system targets cancer and why some patients develop effective anti-tumor immune responses and others do not. Your software engineering skills and knowledge of bioinformatics algorithms will ensure that the bioinformatics group produces robust and scalable computational solutions. You will help us discover and develop novel immuno-oncology therapeutics as part of the team producing the richest and highest fidelity view of cancer immune responses in the world.

Atreca is looking for talented, entrepreneurial people who are dedicated to making a positive impact on human health. This is a unique opportunity for a highly motivated individual to become a key member of a fast-growing biotechnology company.

Strong candidates will:

have a PhD in computational biology, bioinformatics or a related field
have a solid track record of using computational analysis to make biological discoveries
understand the fundamentals of molecular immunology and immune repertoires
be familiar with bioinformatics algorithms
be fluent in SQL and Python
have experience analyzing large sequence data sets
have experience building bioinformatics pipelines
be Unix experts with shell scripting skills
