Genentech - Santa Clara, CA

THE POSITION

Roche Diagnostics Solutions (Santa Clara) is developing nanopore based sequencing dedicated to making clinical genetic testing easy and affordable. We are developing a revolutionary, low cost single-molecule DNA sequencer that can potentially improve the lives of people in a wide variety of ways including timely screening for diseases and diagnosis of various cancers.

The Senior System Engineer in the protocols and metrology team will focus on research and early development of processes encompassing fluidics, reagents, and signals to optimize performance of our nanopore sequencing platform. The chosen candidate will become an expert on the operation, theory, and data analysis for the Roche nanopore sequencing platform. Drawing on experience, the Senior System Engineer will design and implement experiments on the Roche sequencer and will help develop and analyze instrument processes to establish high yield of sequencing protein pores across the sensor array. Using data analysis packages, the candidate will analyze and present experimental results to answer various questions related to system performance and robustness. The candidate must be self-motivated, details-oriented, and able to work well in a team.

Responsibilities:

  • Become an expert on the operation of the Roche Nanopore Sequencing Platform
  • Be a key contributor to the creation of protocols and measurement methods for the sequencer instrument operation and control, and consumable device testing.
  • Help troubleshoot instrument and consumable device protocols and measurements in a fast-paced environment.
  • Build custom analyses to understand system performance and consistency
  • Work across teams in different functional areas to support research activities

Who are you:

You’re someone who wants to influence your own development. You’re looking for a company where you have the opportunity to pursue your interests across functions and disciplines. Where a job title is not considered the final definition of who you are, but the starting point.

  • B.S. with 5+ years of experience (or M.S./PhD with 3+) in bioengineering, engineering, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, or related disciplines.
  • Experience handling wet reagents and operating laboratory equipment.

- Familiarity with Python or Matlab - able to understand/modify existing code, write custom analysis scripts.

  • Good understanding of statistical methods and ability to perform statistical analysis of data with programs such as JMP, Matlab, R.
  • Basic understanding of analog circuits is a plus.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Meticulous attention to detail and excellent written and electronic record keeping skills
  • Self-motivated and able to work well in a multidisciplinary team
