I'm working with a Start-Up Biotech who are bringing new technology and revolutionising the way genomic data is used in disease research. Their technology captures chromosome structure and enables a higher dimension of insight into the mechanisms of human disease, resulting in 30% of cancer patients finding a diagnosis.

The right candidate will drive innovation through new methods to derive actionable insights from chromosome conformation data and leverage ML or other tools to build highly accurate classifiers from chromosome conformation and other genomic data for translational applications.
