The Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD, gnomad.broadinstitute.org) is the world’s largest public database of human genetic information and has been a pioneer in genomic data aggregation since 2013. gnomAD is the default resource used in virtually every clinical variant interpretation pipeline today, and our browser has generated over 39 million page views to date, with tens of thousands of unique monthly users.
We’re looking for an experienced computational scientist to help design the open-source cloud pipelines we use to produce our exponentially growing data releases, to develop new features and scientific analyses, and to eventually manage team members. Your work will directly support patient diagnoses in the clinic as well as transformational research in human genetics and disease etiology.
Our group is part of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, one of the world’s leading biomedical and genomic research centers. You’ll work alongside colleagues with deep expertise in genetics, computational biology, software development, and machine learning. In particular, you’ll have the opportunity to interact closely with Hail (hail.is) developers at the Broad to play a role in the feature design of the field’s most cutting-edge toolkit for massively parallel, high-throughput computation of genetic data.
