The Human Genomics team at C4XD is a multidisciplinary group of data scientists and bioinformaticians who work with genetics and multimodal datasets to provide data-driven insight for complex diseases to advance drug discovery and precision medicine within C4XD. PatientSeek is C4XD’s precision medicine platform, which applies the unique mathematical approach of Taxonomy3® to stratify patients for novel treatments based on their genetics with multi-modal phenotypic data.

This role is a hybrid-based role.

  • Build and refine predictive models for precision medicine diagnostics using AI and ML approaches;
  • Analyse genetic, phenotypic and multi-omic datasets using C4XD’s precision medicine platform, PatientSeek;
  • Develop new analytical features for the PatientSeek precision medicine platform;
  • Coordinate with other researchers in C4XD and external collaborators to ensure the projects progress smoothly and efficiently;
  • Communicate results to the wider C4XD organisation;
  • Ensure record keeping and archiving of data is up to date and accurate;
  • Ensure C4XD and external data privacy policies are adhered to;
  • Support business development activities when required;
  • Support reputational building with publications and poster and oral presentations at conferences;
  • Support appropriate protection of genetic and biological intellectual property.

Education, Experience & Skills Required


  • Ph.D. (or M.Sc. + relevant experience) in data science, biostatistics, bioinformatics or equivalent experience;
  • Experience working with large biological datasets (omics, EHR, RWE, clinical phenotypes);
  • Experience working with Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence methods;
  • Knowledge and understanding of data privacy issues and requirements;
  • Experience with IT tools (e.g., cloud computing, AWS, Linux, HPC), programming languages (e.g., R, Python, SQL, bash), and version control management (e.g., git);
  • Highly self-motivated, flexible and organised;
  • The ability to work independently but know when additional input is required;
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills;
  • Creative thinking and enthusiasm for innovation.


  • Knowledge and understanding of Bayesian statistical methods;
