We have a problem: we have a truckload of material sitting around waiting to be published, but no time to actually write the papers. So we're looking for someone who will help us convert this computational biology goldmine into cold hard Nature Biotech/Methods papers.

This is a great opportunity for an early-career, postdoc-level scientist who has experience publishing papers, demonstrated writing ability, and is not afraid of wrangling complex technical material.

Make no mistake, we're not looking for a ghostwriter; this will involve intellectual contribution worth the authorship in high-profile publications. But the basic material is ready and waiting.

Here is the complete job description; feel free to ask questions in the comments or by private message to me (Geraldine):


Scientific Technical Writer

The Genome Sequencing and Analysis group seeks a scientist with excellent writing skills and experience with scientific publication to work with scientists and engineers on transforming notes and technical documentation for existing analytical methods and tools into polished papers aimed at high-profile journals such as Nature Biotechnology and Nature Genetics. In collaboration with researchers working at the forefront of bioinformatics, including the group that develops the gold-standard Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK), the writer would be responsible for designing paper structure and identifying necessary content to (1) better explain the theory that underlies methods and tools and (2) powerfully illustrate use cases based on public datasets. The writer would focus their writing on the introduction, results, and discussion sections of the papers, expanding existing technical material, while the team will provide the methods sections.

The writer will be hired as a consultant, with a minimum of 20 hours/week of work (more hours are possible if desired).

Requirements:

  • Ph.D. in a scientific discipline (not necessarily bioinformatics or computational biology, though familiarity with those fields is helpful);
  • experience and skill in writing scientific papers (experience with other scientific writing activities, e.g., grant-writing, is also helpful);
  • ability to craft a logically structured text from unstructured material;
  • ability to synthesize information from diverse sources;
  • ability to write clearly and concisely without sacrificing precision;
  • ability to communicate effectively in a team setting;
  • ability to work in a highly collaborative team environment; and
  • desire to take direction and iterate drafts with team members.

Yep, we're hiring again; we need even more compbios!

Do you dream of working on challenging problems, in a stimulating environment with plentiful resources? Or do you simply love the GATK and wish you could spend every waking moment playing with it? Good news! We have a position open for a computational biologist to join our team. You can find out more about us on this page. The job itself? In a nutshell, help develop and apply methods in NGS to medical genetics projects. You can find more details in the Broad Career Center -- look for Requisition Number #1107.

If you're interested (and who wouldn't be?) please message @rpoplin directly. That's Ryan Poplin, now leader of the Computational Methods Development group since Eric Banks became big chief of GSA last week.

We are of course happy to answer questions here in this thread about what it's like to work in the GSA group (awesome!) and how interesting it is to work on the bleeding edge of genome research (amazing!). Feel free to private-message us about it if you don't want your supervisor to know that you're thinking of jumping ship ;-)

Hello all,

My sister company Bereina has been retained by Personalis, a young startup in Palo Alto, CA, to help recruit for their open positions. Personalis’ goal is to use genome sequencing technology to develop products for clinical research and medical diagnostics. Their team is still fairly small right now, but they are looking at consistent growth for the foreseeable future.

Currently they are seeking bioinformatics engineers and scientists for their platform and applications teams, and one of the key traits they are prioritizing is experience with GATK. As this is a forum for GATK discussion, I thought it might be a good place to post about this. Some of the other skills they are looking for include experience with Python, Java, C++, and R.

I’ll try to keep this updated with information about the current openings. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask, and I’ll do my best to ask answer thtem. I can also pass along resumes for review, so if you are interested, please send them to thomas@nwsecurecheck.com.
