  • You are proficient with Bash, Python, and Git. R is a nice bonus

  • You have expertise in next-generation sequencing from wet lab techniques to data analysis workflows

  • You can communicate complex scientific concepts across a range of audiences and work effectively with others

  • You are comfortable with a high degree of freedom and commensurate responsibility

  • A PhD in microbiology, computational biology, molecular biology, bioinformatics or a related field with 2+ years of work experience
