At Nemours, our Associates help us deliver on the promise we make to every family we have the privilege of serving: to treat their child as if they were our own.
The primary function of this role is to provide molecular biology support to research scientists and clinicians at Nemours. This position will manage and execute genomic sequencing based-projects, including development, testing, validation, and implementation of new genomic technologies and protocols. This position will manage the Illumina NextSeq platform / instrument, including implementation of standard operating procedures (SOPs) and best practices. The candidate will provide regular updates to the Director and leadership. Additionally, this role will help drive new and innovative techniques for conducting next generation sequencing library preparation and analysis.
The candidate will be responsible for helping to create a sample management / tracking / LIMS system that will be fully integrated with the genomic “big data” generated from NGS assays. The candidate will manage all wet-bench laboratory aspects for NGS and will work closely with computational scientists on data analysis and data management.
Our dedication to professionals who are dedicated to children frequently earns Nemours a spot on the list of top workplaces in the communities we serve. Our Associates enjoy comprehensive benefits, including our unique “Bridge to a Healthy Future” pediatric health plan, an integrated wellness program, opportunities for professional growth, and much more.
