About the job

Cyclomics is looking for an Intern to join the Bioinformatics team for a 6-9 month internship. Within the team, several exciting projects are available for motivated students in the last phase of their bachelor’s/master’s degree. As part of the bioinformatics team, you will have the opportunity to work with tools and data that are at the basis of next-generation sequencing-based life sciences. The scope of these projects ranges from data analysis and visualization to algorithm development and machine learning, with a solid scientific foundation in a commercial setting.

About Cyclomics

Cyclomics has developed a novel sequencing approach based on the Oxford Nanopore Technologies sequencing platform. Our technology works by creating copies of the original input DNA and linking them together physically, thus allowing us to sequence the same DNA target multiple times. This improves sequencing accuracy by orders of magnitude over the original platform, enabling us to observe tumor mutations in a single vial of blood confidently.

The idea behind Cyclomics was initially developed in 2018 at the UMC Utrecht. Later that same year, experiments to show its effectiveness started—and a business was born! Currently, a dedicated and ever-expanding team is working on this technology and other technologies.

Within the technological development at Cyclomics, a substantial amount of computational work is involved. For more information, please visit
