At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we're not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we're driving excellence and improving outcomes. We're treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
In compliance with applicable New York and New Jersey State regulatory authorities, COVID-19 vaccination (2 doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) is mandatory for all MSK employees, contingent workers, and volunteers. Exceptions are permitted for those employees who request and receive an approved medical or fully remote exemption.
*Staff working at a MSK New Jersey location must be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, which includes having completed the primary COVID-19 vaccination series and booster once eligible as mandated by New Jersey State. All New Jersey staff not yet eligible for a booster must receive a booster within 3 weeks of becoming eligible as a condition of continued employment at MSK.
Note: Individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster five months after receiving the second dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two months after the J&J vaccine.
We are seeking a strong developer to join Sloan Kettering Institute's Single Cell Research Initiative (SCRI). The team's goal is to develop cutting-edge algorithms to interpret the flood of data emerging from single-cell technologies in order to explore questions in tumor heterogeneity, metastasis and the tumor-immune environment. If you would rather apply your superb programming and analytical skills towards a cancer cure than to finance and shopping carts, our dynamic multi-disciplinary team is the place for you.

We are seeking a strong developer to join Sloan Kettering Institute's Single Cell Research Initiative (SCRI). The team's goal is to develop cutting-edge algorithms to interpret the flood of data emerging from single-cell technologies in order to explore questions in tumor heterogeneity, metastasis and the tumor-immune environment. If you want to apply your superb programming and analytical skills towards a cancer cure, our dynamic multi-disciplinary team is the place for you.
SCRI is directed by computational biologist Dr. Dana Pe'er, a pioneer with a strong track record of developing new conceptual approaches and widely used tools in the single-cell analysis field. We collect big biological data, primarily from multi-dimensional single-cell technologies such as single-cell RNA and chromatin sequencing, and imaging with multiplexed molecular quantification. You will improve computational infrastructure and pipelines and implement algorithms that process, integrate and visualize the multiple data types, allowing data scientists, biologists and clinicians to interact with and interpret the data. A key focus is the profiling of patient samples, with the goal of improving immunotherapy and precision medicine. Join us if you want to make an impact!
As a Bioinformatics Software Engineer, you will:
Help to implement new software features for processing, visualizing and interpreting data from multiple modalities, including from single-cell and imaging technologies
Evaluate and compare best practices for processing and analyzing different data types
Maintain and test existing SCRI code infrastructure
Improve sample database and data intake workflows
Provide consultation, guidance and training to research scientists using SCRI tools
