Brief position description:We have a new opening for a Bioinformatician (PSC 8 - $103,409 -$111,927 p.a.).

## What would I be doing?

We are looking for a bioinformatician who will provide vital support to the [UoM Clinical Genomics Platform][1]: assisting with the flow of data through our systems, providing quality control assessments of sequencing data and helping to troubleshoot bottlenecks. You would help drive our ongoing WGS/WTS accreditation effort and be responsible for managing, analyzing and interpreting genomic data for accreditation, with corresponding documentation, and assess the DRAGEN environment using both HPC and cloud computing to improve our clinical reports.

The team is inclusive and diverse, spans the whole range from biologists over bioinformaticians to software engineers, with junior and senior members. We collaborate with a number of international groups, e.g., the Broad Institute, Genomics England and global initiatives such as the Global Alliance for Genomics Health. This particular role will work in close collaboration with Illumina.

The role comes with 17% superannuation. We offer flexible working arrangements including working from home. Applications for part-time work are welcome!
