About Serotiny

Inspired by life – Serotiny digitally encodes nature’s features and functions into a biologically aware API for the high-throughput, rational design of multi-domain synthetic proteins.

By coupling state-of-the-art mammalian synthetic biology and a finely-tuned software architecture, Serotiny aims to embrace one of the greatest opportunities of the 21st century to improve people’s lives. Serotiny designs custom proteins with cutting edge capabilities including treatment of cancers and genetic disorders. We partner with leaders in the life sciences to give proteins wholly new functions for more effective, safer, and customized therapies.

With support from world-class investors including Nanodimension and 8VC, Serotiny is proud to build a cross-disciplinary team of passionate individuals with varied experiences.

Bioinformatics
San Francisco, CA, Full Time

Description:

This person will lead Serotiny’s capabilities for creating, manipulating and interpreting biological data. This person will collaborate with software engineers and biologists to ensure Serotiny’s data is high-quality and intelligently structured.

Quality data is key to the success of Serotiny’s design/build/test loop that couples a finely tuned software architecture with wet-lab mammalian synthetic biology. Serotiny is looking for bioinformaticians who are excited to enable Serotiny’s software architecture to invent new modalities for cell and gene therapies.

Role:

  • Design and evaluate novel data architecture and bioinformatic algorithms
  • Efficiently identify and analyze biological datasets
  • Design in-silico and in-vitro experiments to test the efficacy of data structure, algorithms and data-quality
  • Collaborate with software engineers and synthetic biologists to develop protein design and analysis methodologies

Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in bioinformatics or Ph.D. with equivalent experience in computational biology
  • Direct experience with algorithm development
  • Expertise in mammalian synthetic biology
  • Flexibility and desire to work at the early stages of a startup

Perks:

  • Full health benefits
  • Budget to host and attend developer events
  • Opportunities to develop and publish open-source standards for synthetic biology
  • Opportunities to architect and deploy novel interfaces & services for use in biology
