Fusion Genomics is looking to hire a full-time Senior Computational Biologist to join our software development team in an exciting and highly dynamic start-up environment.
The successful applicant will participate in developing, improving and maintaining bioinformatics tools that will advance our NGS assays. This will entail the analysis and interpretation of assay results from genomic clinical datasets, developing genomic models using machine learning, and providing analysis support to our colleagues and external collaborators. The successful candidate will work independently but will interact with software programmers, database developers, other bioinformaticians and laboratory personnel. This role requires a broad knowledge of bioinformatics statistics, and programming, paired with effective communication skills, meticulous attention to detail in analysis, and timeliness.
Develop and maintain bioinformatics pipelines to analyze genomic data from infectious diseases.
Provide bioinformatics support for clinical/analytical validation of genomic assays.
Produce thorough but concise written documentation of algorithms, validations, SOPs, and other processes and procedures as required.
Perform literature search, testing and validation of new data analysis software / techniques.
Foster effective and collaborative working relationships with fellow employees, management and external partners.
Support and assist colleagues in data preparation and bioinformatics analysis.
Contribute to manuscript drafting for peer-reviewed journals.
PhD or MSc from a quantitative field with strong programming experience (bioinformatics, computational biology, data science, statistics, applied math, computer science, or an allied field). At least 2 years of recent related experience.
Experience in implementing and validating bioinformatics methods.
Experience working with NGS analysis tools such as SAMtools, BWA, and Bowtie2.
Proficiency in working in a Unix environment, including experience with shell scripting and common command-line tools.
Working knowledge of distributed version control systems, such as GIT.
Proven expertise with Python, C/C++ and or other similar high-level languages.
Demonstrated ability to effectively communicate in spoken and written English.
Demonstrated ability to efficiently organize work assignments and establish priorities.
Proven interpersonal skills with the ability to work collaboratively as a member of cross-functional team.
Background in molecular biology and/or infectious diseases a plus.
Experienced in the application of machine learning algorithms a plus.

The Ready to Rocket list comprises companies that show the “greatest potential for revenue growth.” Of the 5 category winners chosen this year, Fusion Genomics was the winner in the Life Sciences category. We are pleased to be awarded this honour! Although we are glad to see us mentioned in this article published by Vancouver’s own Georgia Straight, we do wish they had done a better job of describing what we do; supplying a simple test for diagnosing difficult-to-identify diseases using modern Next Generation Sequencing technology and our proprietary bioinformatics database and platform!
“Manitoba is at the heart of a region that is perfectly positioned to build a strong infrastructure for research and discovery in clean technologies,” says Dr. Simon Potter, Director of Manitoba at Genome Prairie. “We are proud to partner with Fusion Genomics to build the Genome360 program and create an innovative platform to advance genomics tools used for commercialization opportunities in clean technology and contribute to the bioeconomy.”
“It is an exciting and historic time for innovation in Canada. The Digital Technology Supercluster is a generational opportunity – one that holds significant promise for companies in BC and across Canada,” says Bill Tam, Co-Chair of Canada’s Digital Technology Supercluster consortium. “Now the important work begins. As a collective, we’ll apply data and use technology in new ways, such as mixed reality, which can digitally transform companies, solve industry problems and advance economic opportunities throughout BC, Canada and the world.”
