The ideal candidate will utilize next-generation sequencing
technologies, prepare NGS libraries and perform high throughput
sequencing in the NGS core to support GTM's proprietary pipeline
and platforms for cancer and pathogens. Primary duties include:
Work closely with the research groups to identify unmet needs and
opportunities to utilize NGS technologies to facilitate research
projects, such as recombinant AAV vector quality control, vector
optimization and screening using DNA barcoding, omics profiling
through genome sequencing, transcriptome sequencing and epigenetic
Collaborate with end users to design experiments, prepare libraries
and conduct high throughput sequencing to support various research
projects and advance departmental goals
Develop, optimize and validate NGS library preparation and
sequencing methodologies based on specific needs and ad hoc
requests from research groups.
Establish quality control metrics, implement quality control
measures for NGS workflows in the core. Troubleshoot and ensure
accuracy and precision of data generated in the NGS core.
Interface cross-functionally with other teams in the company such
as the R&D, Clinical and Wastewater-based epidemiology teams
and our data scientists team to automate library preparation
protocols and ensure smooth data flow to improve operational
efficiency and robustness of the NGS core.
Job Function And Description:
Routine NGS operations from sample receiving, nucleic acid
extraction, library construction, data generation and quality
control to ensure high level of quality and reliability of
generated results. Maintain laboratory equipment.
Develop new protocols and optimize existing protocols to meet
clients' ad hoc needs. Improve operational efficiency of the core
through automation and innovation. Troubleshoot sequencing
experiments as needed.
Research literature. Author SOPs and reports. Contribute to
interpretation of the data as needed.
Provide support to the Research Teams, engage in cross-functional
communications with different departments.
