Job Description

Candidates wishing for flexibility to work remotely from other Singapore locations may also be considered on a case-by-case basis.


Since 2001, the cost of DNA sequencing has dropped more than 100,000-fold, from $100,000,000 USD per human genome to less than $600 USD today. This is resulting in explosive growth of genomics data, which we are combining with machine learning for data-driven agriculture, cancer treatment, reproductive health, and other life-changing applications.
