Job ID 4007: Data Manager

We are a young, collaborative, and driven company with innovation at our core. As we grow and continue to take on the most challenging scientific problems, we are looking for a data manager to take the lead in the implementation and maintenance of a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) for our scientists. 

Our ideal candidate is someone who can build and grow with us - an expert multitasker who loves finding order in large datasets from complex experimental pipelines. If you’re self-motivated, creative, and thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative environment, we would love to hear from you.

How you might spend your days:

  • Assessing AbCellera's scientists' functional data management requirements
  • Attending scientific meetings and R&D updates
  • Standardizing and centralizing scientific data
  • Developing, executing, and maintaining data management plans
  • Supporting individual scientists’ and team-wide data management needs
  • Monitoring and addressing AbCellera's scientists' ever-changing data management requirements as: (1) we implement new equipment with associated data types and files; (2) the volume of data we generate and analyze increases; (3) associations of data across equipment and experiments become more complex; and (4) our data become more complex
  • Evaluating existing LIMS tools and determining which ones will best satisfy the aforementioned requirements
  • Interfacing with representatives for commercial LIMS products to optimize internal implementation
  • Training scientists on LIMS tool features and updates
  • Interfacing with the Bioinformatics team to coordinate the integration of novel LIMS with existing in-house data management systems

Required qualifications and experience:

  • A minimum of an M.Sc. with a strong biology background
  • Experience managing large volumes of complex laboratory data
  • Friendly and personable with excellent communication skills
  • Excellent documentation and organizational skills
  • Eagerness to solve problems both big and small

Offers & benefits:

  • The opportunity to work with an inspired team on challenging problems that matter
  • An attractive compensation package, including health and lifestyle benefits
  • Family-friendly benefits, including a corporate membership with a local daycare
  • A minimum of 3 weeks’ vacation
  • A seat in our beautiful new office in Vancouver, BC, Canada (just off Cambie Street, with plenty of good lunch options nearby)
  • Opportunities for personal and professional development

About AbCellera:

We’re revolutionizing how our scientists explore antibodies and the scale at which they can do so. This is life-changing research and you could be a part of it.

You’ll join a diverse and multi-disciplinary team of biologists, biochemists, engineers, bioinformaticians, computer scientists and physicists - all working together to bring better therapies to patients. We’re a growing company with a high-throughput pipeline and the drive to be the best in the industry. This isn’t just about having the best technology. We know we need a world-class team of visionaries and innovators. We look for people with drive and energy. Idealists. People we love and people we trust.
