Basecamp Research is a London-based biotechnology company. We explore the most exciting, diverse, and extreme environments on our planet and sample these environments for microbial sequences (metagenomics). We negotiate benefit-sharing agreements with the localities we go to, ensuring that our data is collected ethically and sustainably. Our in-house metagenomics & ML cloud pipeline generates taxonomic, genomic, and protein annotations that we embed into our knowledge graph together with geographic, geochemical, and environmental metadata. From our knowledge graph, we then design AI-guided protein and genomics solutions for our customers across the Bioindustry.
We pride ourselves on being an exciting, fun and flexible place to work. If you feel passionate about the power of biology to build a better world, we’d love to hear from you.
The Product Bioinformatician will work closely with the Data and Commercial teams on customer delivery and product design projects with a special focus on genome editing & genomics solutions. Key responsibilities will include the expansion of our computational approaches and workflows in this field, and overseeing customer panel selection. Furthermore, the successful candidate will interact with research partners to discuss experimental designs & outcomes.
