Sr. Scientist/Scientist - Product Development

San Mateo, CA

At PrognomiQ, we aim to transform healthcare by generating and using systems biology data to develop and commercialize tests for early detection and treatment of cancer and other complex diseases.  PrognomiQ leverages leading proteomics technology, including the Proteograph product suite from Seer, as part of a multi-omics platform that provides an unprecedented molecular view of health and disease. We are a team of experienced and accomplished scientists supported by a group of leading investors in healthcare and technology.

Would you like to be part of a team that is at the leading edge of molecular data generation and analyses that changes how cancer and other complex diseases are detected and treated? Do you aspire to be on the cutting edge of ‘omics technology and data science development? Are you looking to be part of a world class scientific team striving to bring disruptive solutions to market? Do you thrive in an environment of cross-functional disciplines and innovation?

As an early member of the PrognomIQ multi-disciplinary scientific team, you will help drive the development of a platform for the scalable, high-throughput and reproducible multi-omics analysis of cancer and other complex diseases. Your expertise will provide a significant contribution to the scientific and technological direction of the proteomics that are core to our multi-omics platform development. You will work within a highly interdisciplinary team uniting scientists with a broad range of expertise and collaborate to integrate multiple omics signals into a full systems biology view of every patient as we discover, develop, and commercialize solutions to save patients' lives.

 PrognomIQ is leveraging game-changing advances in proteomic methods (Seer Bio’s Proteograph Suite) with cutting edge next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies in order to revolutionize non-invasive diagnostics. Highly motivated experts passionate about creating disruptive diagnostic technologies for early disease detection are valued and critical to our success.
