Passionate about making a difference in the world of cancer genomics?

With the advent of genomic sequencing, we can finally decode and process our genetic makeup; however, computer technology has had limited impact in healthcare. With the expansion of multi-modal healthcare data and recent advancements in AI, that’s about to fundamentally change. Tempus is a healthcare technology company at the forefront of that change to leverage data to improve patient lives.

Tempus' proprietary platform connects an entire ecosystem of real-world data to deliver real-time, actionable insights to physicians. Our data empowers researchers to better characterize and understand disease, and to drive better outcomes through precise, individualized care.

We built Tempus to collect, structure, and organize data from disparate data silos into a comprehensive dataset to accelerate the pace of  innovation and discovery in healthcare. And now we are looking for a Director of Translational Science to join our rapidly growing Life Sciences team. This role will focus on leading a team of translational scientists in collaborating with the world’s leading biopharmaceutical organizations utilizing the Tempus platform to enable multimodal analysis and Artificial Intelligence across the entire drug development lifecycle. Our Translational Scientists are comfortable on a whiteboard designing studies or a board room with an Executive, providing trusted technical advice for our partners and clients. 

This candidate will be responsible for building and leading a team of translational scientists to cultivate and grow Tempus's partnerships with pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients to support them in advancing their research, clinical and/or commercial programs.  The Tempus precision medicine platform brings multiple capabilities together such as Multimodal Datasets, Artificial Intelligence applications, Sequencing and Clinical Trial recruitment services to change the future of drug development.

  • Develop the educational material necessary to onboard our clients onto multimodal analysis using Tempus data and platform
  • Contribute to the development of the Life Sciences portfolio by providing feedback to Leadership regarding client responses and suggestions; maintain a solution-oriented mindset
