  Research Scientist Principal

  University of Washington Department of Genome Sciences

  As a UW employee, you have a unique opportunity to change lives on our campuses, in our state and around the world. UW employees offer their boundless energy, creative problem solving skills and dedication to build stronger minds and a healthier world.

  UW faculty and staff also enjoy outstanding benefits, professional growth opportunities and unique resources in an environment noted for diversity, intellectual excitement, artistic pursuits and natural beauty. All of which has allowed the UW to be nationally recognized as a “Great College to Work For” for four consecutive years.

  The Department of Genome Sciences (GS) is part of the University of Washington School of Medicine (UW SoM) and is comprised of 26 labs addressing leading edge questions in biology and medicine by developing and applying genetic, genomic and computational approaches taking advantage of genomic information now available for a host of species. GS is making major contributions in the application of genome science to understand the fundamentals of biology and to improve human health and wellbeing. Genome Sciences is a collaborative department supported by very different academic disciplines. We work with a multitude of Program Investigators (PIs) in departments both on the UW campus as well as worldwide. The department has gone through significant expansion since its beginning in 2001 with annual grant awards of $67M in FY17.

  The Department of Genome Sciences has an outstanding opportunity for a RESEARCH SCIENTIST ENGINEER PRINCIPAL. The Research Scientist/Engineer Principal will establish and direct a CLIA-certified, next-generation sequencing laboratory in the Department of Genome Sciences. As part of a larger cutting-edge genomics group, this laboratory will provide clinical-grade whole exome, whole genome and targeted gene sequencing of subject-derived samples.

  Responsibilities:

  Perform primary data quality evaluation and review variant results

  Train and supervise new laboratory personnel

  Establish and oversee a CLIA-certified, next-generation sequencing laboratory to perform NGS-based testing using whole exome sequencing, whole genome sequencing and targeted gene panels

  Oversee CLIA certification and CAP accreditation activities required, including all necessary interactions with external regulatory agencies, committees, and auditors

  Ensure facility maintains compliance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations

  Establish laboratory SOPs for processing, test analyses, reporting and maintaining records of subject test results

  Establish and maintain Q/C, Q/A and proficiency test documentation

  Minimum Qualifications:

  MD or PhD in Genetics, Biology, Biochemistry, or related field

  Board certification by HHS approved board, preferably ABMGG

  Six or more years of laboratory supervisor experience with a minimum of three years’ experience working in a high-complexity, clinical molecular genetics testing laboratory (CLIA-certified).

  Must have prior experience with DNA sequencing technology and molecular biological technique

  Comprehensive knowledge of molecular biology, genetics, and/or chemistry

  Strong analytical and problem solving skills

  Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills

  Must be highly organized with a strong attention to detail

  Ability to work both independently and collaboratively

  Equivalent education/experience will substitute for all minimum qualifications except where there are legal requirements such as license/certification/registration.

  Desired Qualifications:
