Creating A New Universe Of Genetic Medicines

Duration: Full-Time


About Us
Deep Genomics is a Toronto-based startup company that is building an AI-powered discovery and development platform to significantly expand the universe of medicines available for genetically-defined diseases. Founded in 2015, Deep Genomics brings together a multidisciplinary team of world-leading experts in machine learning, genomics, chemistry, and biology. Together we are on a mission to rapidly discover and develop oligonucleotide drugs for the treatment of patients with severe disorders of the liver, central nervous system, and eye.

Ideal Candidate
We are seeking a highly motivated bioinformatician (positions open in multiple groups) with strong programming and scripting skills to help us advance our therapeutic programs to the next level. The successful candidate will work in a multidisciplinary team of biologists and computational scientists, and take on tasks spanning analysis and visualization of experimental data, processing of genomics data, designing antisense oligonucleotide compounds, and supporting pre-clinical development programs. The ideal candidate would have a good understanding of molecular biology, human genetics, and basic statistics.

Requirements:

  • BSc in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or related fields and two years post-graduate experience, or MSc in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or related fields.
  • Solid knowledge of Python, and some knowledge of R is desirable.
  • Understanding of basic concepts in molecular biology and human genetics.
  • Comfort working in a fast-paced and rapidly growing work environment

Preferred but optional qualifications:

  • Solid statistics knowledge with ability to perform various statistical analyses independently.
  • Experience with human genomics data (including next generation sequencing).

What we offer:

  • A highly competitive salary and meaningful equity compensation.
  • Exceptional opportunities for learning and growth.
  • Leading role in developing the future of genomic analysis and therapy.
  • A bright, collegial, highly-motivated team working at the intersection of the most exciting areas of science and technology.

Deep Genomics thanks all applicants, however only those selected for an interview will be contacted. 

Deep Genomics welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.

About Deep Genomics

Deep Genomics is using artificial intelligence to build a new universe of life-saving genetic therapies. The future of medicine will rely on artificial intelligence, because biology is too complex for humans to understand. At Deep Genomics, our geneticists, molecular biologists and chemists develop new ways of detecting and treating disease using our biologically accurate artificial intelligence technology.
