The Senior Research Scientist I, with input from senior scientists and leaders, works in collaboration with others on one or more projects which are complex in scope. The Senior Research Scientist I participates in or leads planning of projects and experiments, and is often the technical lead responsible for the successful execution of the project. This position involves independently making detailed observations, analyzing data, interpreting results and providing insights into the next steps and direction of the project, as well as independently determining methods and procedures on new assignments or projects.
Working in a team setting, the Senior Research Scientist I will be involved in Research and Development projects serving as a technical lead and/or a subject matter expert in next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies, providing ideas and concepts to improve or develop processes, and/or establish methods and processes for product development towards development of diagnostic assay products. This position will also mentor and provide technical guidance to junior scientists in project teams.
This is a creative position that focuses on creation and optimization of next-generation sequencing protocols. This role will be responsible for conducting hands-on wet lab work and coordinating the work of research associates to obtain high-quality nucleic acid, convert it to libraries suitable for NGS, enrich for desired regions, sequence and coordinate with biostatisticians to analyze and interpret results. This role is involved in the early stages of discovery, product design and feasibility testing, so a high level of flexibility and adaptability is required.
