Job Description

SomaLogic is a privately-owned biomedical science company that developed a revolutionary proteomics technology capable of measuring thousands of different human proteins in a single small sample. We are now moving towards commercializing the health-related information derived from that technology to help people worldwide proactively manage their health for life. As a part of our commercialization effort, we are seeking additional expertise to join our dedicated team of scientists, bioinformaticians, statisticians, and software developers to help us realize that vision.

The production Bioinformatics team works at the intersection of assay development and assay outcomes; we employ a wide range of data visualization and statistical methods in support of assay reporting and quality monitoring. The production Bioinformatics Analyst will use strong communication skills to interact daily with other bioinformatics analysts, laboratory personnel, project managers, and external customers and collaborators. Strong attention to details and deadlines is critical. This is a great position for someone looking to break into the biotech and bioinformatics industry.
