To support our growth, we are looking for bioinformatics professionals, especially with the profiles listed below. If you think you'd be an asset to us working on an area not mentioned below, please send us an open application.

We are on a mission to create the best place in the world in which to work on bioinformatics. For technology specialists we think this means that you will be working with, and developing, the best bioinformatics tools to use in infinitely varying projects and applications. For business development, management and technology sales professionals this means creating new ways of working in technology and exposing yourself daily to new research areas, companies and technologies.

For every team member, we offer an energetic team of colleagues with interdisciplinary backgrounds, a chance to tailor your job description to your liking, the possibility of traveling to meet our clients globally, participation into the decision-making process, a competitive salary, flexible working hours, and an office in a historic building on the main street of Tampere.


GENEVIA TECHNOLOGIES’ Production Team is recruiting! We are looking for a seasoned bioinformatics scientist with a passion for providing bioinformatics services to research groups in the academic and industry sectors. As a Project Manager, your most important responsibilities include 1) planning the required bioinformatics workflow with our clients on a high level, then 2) dissecting that workflow into more specific analysis tasks to our production bioinformaticians, and 3) integrating, interpreting and reporting analysis results back to the client’s team. In addition to scientific management, you will be responsible for general management of your projects such as all communication, budgeting and allocating resources.

OUR CLIENTS are researchers who are using a wide variety of omics technologies from the basic bulk mRNA sequencing to completely novel experimental platforms. You are already familiar with standard computational methods for omics data analysis, such as how to ascertain the quality of an experiment, statistical testing, as well as the specialised computational tools of the trade, such as genome alignment, genome assembly and annotation, SNP calling, peak calling, pathway analysis, and are excited to learn new tools for new technologies. The biological applications our clients are working with range from microbiology, to plants and animals, to biomedical applications, such as immunology or cancer. We don’t expect that you are an expert in all areas, but you will have enough base understanding to be able to quickly grasp the essence of our clients’ research questions.

SUCCEEDING IN THE POSITION REQUIRES understanding of omics data types, typical analysis workflows, enthusiasm to learn new biology and technology, and a knack for science outreach and communication (in written text, data visualisations and conversation/presentations). This is not a programming position, but you still need to read R/bash/Python scripts fluently. If you have practical experience in publishing biological research papers with a bioinformatics component, and/or have worked in a bioinformatics core laboratory, for example, you are already quite familiar with our projects. The position would be ideal for an academic bioinformatician who wants to work in management, but also to remain firmly within the research realm of life sciences and bioinformatics.
