For the 26th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
The Clinical Bioinformatics group within the department of Pathology specializes in analyzing next-generation sequencing data to characterize the spectrum of genetic mutations in patient tumors. Analysis of this genomic data is guiding treatment decisions and the enrollment of patients onto clinical trials of novel targeted therapies.
The clinical data management system has rapidly grown from 40TB to approximately 1PB with a dozen production servers and over a dozen software systems and pipelines. As a Bioinformatics Software Engineer, you will work in a highly collaborative environment directly impacting patient care. You will be responsible for supporting production-scale analysis of clinical next-generation sequencing data on patient samples, building new and extending existing production systems, providing technical support, and participating in various aspects of the software development life cycle. You will also participate in developing full-stack web applications, RESTful web APIs, for our clinical variants sign out system.
