Bioinformatics Scientist/Senior Scientist, Immunology, ARDS and COVID

Company: Genentech
Location: South San Francisco
Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

The Genentech Bioinformatics department seeks a highly motivated Reverse Translation Scientist/Senior Scientist to leverage computational biology to study the molecular pathways that contribute to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), including those associated with COVID-19. The successful candidate will work with colleagues in the Translational Genomics and Immunology departments to pursue the development of novel therapeutics and biomarkers related to ARDS. The successful candidate will work as a member of a highly collaborative team to design experiments, interpret data, and develop computational solutions to address underlying biological questions. The successful candidate will lead a computationally-driven research program focused on leveraging high-dimensional data from patient-derived tissue and biofluids to develop a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms driving ARDS.


* You have a PhD and Postdoctoral training in Computational Biology, Biostatistics, Human Genetics, and some experience in Immunology.

* You have evidence of scientific achievements through first or corresponding author publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

* You are comfortable writing code in languages such as R, or Matlab, Python, etc. and have familiarity with UNIX and high-performance computing environments.

* You are able to define and lead a computational research program involving the creative analysis and integration of high dimensional datasets (e.g. single cell sequence assays, genotype or WGS data, proteomics data and CRISPR screen analysis).

* You are intensely curious about the biology of disease and eager to contribute to scientific efforts focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying disease biology.

* You have basic expertise in molecular and cellular biology.

* You are able to work successfully as the computational lead in cross-functional teams that contribute to drug and biomarker development.

* You have excellent scientific communication skills: verbally and in writing; with computational and non-computational audiences; in informal 1-1 settings, team meetings, and formal seminars.
