PhD Medical/Human Geneticist

A full-time PhD Scientist position is available at Molecular Vision laboratory, a full service clinical diagnostic laboratory that provides cutting edge genomic testing, focusing on ocular genetics. The position requires the candidate to engage in clinical molecular diagnosis, therefore, the position is not a research position.  You will be responsible for clinical NGS pipeline including sequence alignment, data analysis and interpretation. Additionally, the position will require wet-lab bench work. The candidate should be efficient at acquiring new technical skills, new knowledge of human genetics and driven to see clinical cases running through pipeline in a timely manner.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • NGS sequence alignment, data analysis and interpretation
  • Array CGH data analysis and interpretation
  • Manage mutation confirmation work flow (PCR and Sanger)
  • Writing clinical report drafts

 Key Experiences and Skills:

  • Knowledgeable in the fundamentals of molecular biology and human genetics
