About the role:

Syapse is looking for a Cancer Informatics Specialist to build on our efforts to enable clinical decision making using a genuinely unique set of real world evidence and Syapse software.  

We’ve created a large real-world data set which aggregates and standardizes patient clinical history and molecular profiling results with treatments, and outcomes from multiple disparate sources. This unparalleled comprehensive set of real world evidence can be used to extract insights such as new treatment paradigms and more efficient research pathways. Not only are the data insights you will be able to generate uniquely possible at Syapse, but these insights will be applied directly to improving patient outcomes at the point of care.

This San Francisco-based position will report to the VP of Oncology and collaborate daily with a cross-functional team of product managers, software engineers, ontologists, physicians, data scientists and others in a fast-paced and mission driven environment.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Expertise: Be a domain expert on the field of oncology as it relates to clinical data
  • Deliver: Ability to multi-task and execute on concurrent projects
