Centre for Population Genomics


Interested in joining the Centre for Population Genomics?

The Centre for Population Genomics is on a mission to drive genomic discovery and equitable genomic medicine in Australia, through the establishment of respectful partnerships with diverse communities and the collection and analysis of genomic data at a transformative scale.

About our work:

These roles will be remote-first: the CPG is geographically distributed across Sydney, Melbourne, and New Zealand, and operates under a fully-remote model, allowing for flexible approaches to working. However, office space is available at both the Garvan Institute of Medical Research (Garvan) in Sydney and the Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI) in Melbourne, and all-staff in-person events are held quarterly.

The Centre is not a traditional academic environment and consists of a highly collaborative team that pairs researchers with software developers, project and operations managers, and community engagement specialists. While these positions will involve direct exposure to cutting-edge genomic science (including WGS and scRNA-seq generated at population scale, and additional research using novel long-read and cellular genomic technologies), these are professional roles. As such, career progression and performance evaluations are based on team outcomes and impact measures rather than more traditional metrics such as publications.

Current Opportunities:

We are seeking a Senior Computational Biologist to join the Population Analysis team at the Centre for Population Genomics. The Senior Computational Biologist would be involved in core aspects of project delivery across the domains of Genetic Diversity and Gene Function, including contributing to the development of cloud-based analysis pipelines, analysing diverse genomic datasets to produce core data resources, leading the development of user-facing products to maximise accessibility of these resources, and leading novel research projects that leverage these resources to impact the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. We are looking for a highly motived person with a PhD in human genetics or computational biology (or related field) and experience with large scale human genome studies, including GWAS or QTL association studies.
