The state-of the-art Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and genomic applications group at Genentech is looking for a motivated computational scientist to join our team.

Working in a highly collaborative environment, the successful candidate will develop and apply bioinformatics approaches and tools to support rapidly evolving genomic applications in addition to methods for advancing novel sequencing technologies and platforms. He/she is expected to play an active role in subsequent analysis and interpretation of data in close collaboration with wet lab scientists. Ultimately this work will deepen our understanding of genomic technologies and provide insights into their utility and contribution towards advancing diverse biological systems.

As a member of the NGS group, he/she will work both independently and as a member of cross-functional teams to lead the effort on experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, data integration across various domains as well as to develop/apply best-in-class algorithms in support of evaluating and implementing cutting edge genomic technologies. Regular publication of both scientific and methodological results is strongly encouraged. Finally, the successful candidate will be able to effectively present complex results in a clear and concise manner to a diverse scientific audience.


PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, or related discipline.

At least 5 years of post-doctoral or industrial work experience is required.

Strong publication record demonstrated by several first author publications.

Exceptionally strong communication, data presentation and visualization skills.

Deep understanding of analytical approaches and tools for genomic data analysis plus familiarity with genome databases. Candidates with proven expertise in the analysis of NGS data generated on sequencing platforms such as Illumina, Oxford Nanopore, or 10x Genomics will be prioritized.

Demonstrated understanding of the statistical principles, machine learning methods and current best practices in high-throughput sequencing data analysis.

Strong experience in the use of a high-level programming language such as R (preferred) or Python for computational data analysis. Familiarity with Linux and high-performance computing environments.

Ability to work both independently and collaboratively, to manage multiple concurrent, fast-paced projects and to work with multidisciplinary teams.
