Tempus is a technology company that is building the world’s largest library of molecular and clinical data and an operating system to make that data accessible and useful. We enable physicians to deliver personalized cancer care for patients through our interactive analytical and machine learning platform.

Clinical Molecular Technologist I – PM Shift at Tempus

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're on a mission to connect an entire ecosystem to redefine how genomic data is used in clinical settings. We're looking to build a laboratory operations team who are passionate and focused on developing state of the art techniques to processing and creating and interpreting vast amounts of genomic and molecular data. Scientists will collaborate with product, research, and business development teams to develop the most advanced sequencing platform in cancer care.

What you’ll do:

  • Work with a cutting-edge genomics workflow to provide high-quality next-generation sequencing data with rapid turnaround times in a clinical laboratory
  • Utilize automation and robotics to standardize the discovery pipeline from sample acquisition to sequencing output
  • Maintain quality metrics and data generation for next-generation sequencing platforms
  • Work to maintain CLIA/CAP compliance in a novel field

Qualifications:

Must have:

  • MS in medical technology, clinical laboratory science, chemical, physical or biological science and experience with molecular biology

OR

  • BS in medical technology, clinical laboratory science, chemical, physical or biological science and 2 years of experience in molecular biology
  • Ability to work PM shift starting at noon
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Thrives in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to work with others to plan and carry out scientific programs
  • Self-driven and works well in an interdisciplinary team with minimal direction
  • Strong desire to build products that will save lives and change the course of cancer
  • Impeccable attention to detail

Highly Desirable:

  • Experience with next-generation sequencing
  • Work in a CLIA/CAP high-complexity laboratory
  • Experience with robotics and automated liquid handling systems
  • Knowledge of LIMS platforms and various computer systems
