Bioinformatician – Biotech Start-Up – UK

AL Solutions are exclusively partnered with a small start-up Biotechnology company, based in Cambridge (UK).

This company, founded last year, have managed to grow to a team of 15 and have just received another round of funding – expecting to grow to a team of 35 by Q2 2019.

Focused within the study of Genomics, and a niche focus within cancer research, they would like to run their own clinical trials next year and to truly impact the way in which cancers are diagnosed, treated, and cured.

My client is truly focused on their culture and environment. Therefore, you must be someone that’s able to fit into their quirky, fun, and energetic team. Perhaps you’re a 6 a-side champ? A Playstation guru? Maybe you’re always willing to buy the first round.


Your Responsibilities will be to work as part of their bioinformatics team to develop, launch, and scale bioinformatics pipelines to a delivery of analyses. You’ll also maintain core analysis infrastructure, develop reports and documentation for results and support wet lab scientists in procuring NGS datasets.



  • Bachelor’s degree within Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, or a related field
  • Programming experience with Python
  • Experience and understanding of bioinformatics tools for large-scale NGS datasets
  • Experience with Unix/Linux environments
  • Ability to work concurrently on multiple projects
  • Ability to work independently to tight deadlines

As a small, flexible, and growing company – they can offer 1 day p/week working from home, as well as flexi-working hours. Therefore, you can work on the train, you can start-early and finish early, or start-late and finish late etc. They have an open, honest, and trustworthy culture.



AL Solutions are a niche Life Science recruitment consultancy. We place professionals across the UK/EU for a variety of biotechnology, pharmaceutical and CRO companies ranging from small start-ups to large global organisations.
