You Will:

The mission of the Center for Molecular Oncology (CMO) is to promote precision oncology through genomic analysis to guide the diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients. The CMO brings together clinicians and scientists throughout MSKCC to conduct large-scale translational research involving molecular characterization of patient tumor specimens in order to identify correlations between genomic features and clinical outcomes.

The Platform Informatics group within the CMO is seeking a software engineer to build tools and improve existing infrastructure for patient sample tracking in next-generation sequencing analysis work flows. This technology is at the core of this center’s mission to advance our knowledge of cancer using clinical data, biological research, computer science and statistics. Work will be performed in a small group atmosphere (approximately 10 members from diverse disciplines) with several active collaborators, and in concert with other LIMS Engineers, Project Managers, and genomic sequencing core scientists.
