Science Writer

Passionate about making a difference in the world of cancer genomics?

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers don't have the infrastructure or expertise to make sense of said data. Here at Tempus, we believe the greatest promise for the detection and treatment of cancer lies in the deep understanding of molecular activity for disease initiation, progression, and efficacious treatment based on the discovery of unique biomarkers.

We are seeking an independent and motivated Science Writer to join our Computational Immunology group. This individual will work in an interdisciplinary team to communicate important new biological and clinical insights.

What You’ll Do

  • Collaborate with a fast-moving team of computational biologists, data scientists, and immunologists to prepare research articles for publication in top-tier peer reviewed scientific journals.
