Data Scientist, Machine Learning

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

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally measure and process our genetic makeup. We now have more data than ever before but providers often don't have the infrastructure or expertise required to easily extract the valuable insights that exist in said data. Here at Tempus, we believe the greatest promise for the detection and treatment of cancer lies in building a deep understanding of the interaction between molecular activity and clinical treatment, through the discovery of response patterns and unique biomarkers.

We're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. We are looking for data scientists who are passionate about developing and applying state of the art techniques to processing and analyzing vast amounts of clinical, genomic, and molecular data. Data scientists will collaborate with product, research, and business development teams to build the most advanced data platform in cancer care.
