About the position
We are seeking computational biologists for data analysis and interpretation roles in drug development. This role involves working closely with leading pharmaceutical companies, helping to facilitate the development of new medicines for serious diseases including neurodegeneration and cancer. Candidates should have PhD or postdoctoral experience using RNA-Seq data and/or applying statistical and machine learning methodologies to genomic data. Experience with CNS or neurodegenerative disease areas is a plus. In this role, you will contribute to both the analysis and interpretation of RNA-Seq or other genomic data, helping to identify mechanistic insights that can lead to new medicines for patients.
Analyze data such as gene expression, SNPs, NGS (RNA-Seq, exome, and whole genome sequencing), proteomic data, and clinical metadata
Apply statistical insights to develop innovative analysis methods and algorithms for biological data
Collaborate with colleagues to solve complex computational research problems
Interpret data from a biological and clinical perspective
Present scientific material (written and oral) to diverse audiences
PhD in Computational Biology, Statistics, or a related field (i.e., Biology, Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Bioinformatics, Neuroscience) or 5+ years of work experience at a leading computational biology focused institution
Experience working with RNA-Seq, microarray, SNP, exome, or whole genome sequencing data
Proven ability to work independently as well as contribute to larger initiatives
Strong experience in scientific communication, excellent writing and presentation skills
Extensive experience working in R or a similar language
Immuneering Corporation is a trusted advisor to the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, pioneering new analyses to identify biological insights that improve patients’ lives. Immuneering’s team of experts provides advanced data analysis services using state of the art technologies including proprietary algorithms. Headquartered in Cambridge, MA with a second office in NYC, Immuneering is a rapidly growing company with eight years of experience analyzing data sets including: gene expression (microarray), single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), proteomic, clinical metadata, and next-generation sequencing (NGS) including RNAseq, exome sequencing, and whole genome sequencing. Using these data sets, Immuneering captures difficult-to-find signals, generates biological hypotheses, and designs follow up studies, contributing to the development of medicines for patients with neurodegeneration and other CNS diseases, cancer, autoimmune disorders, and other serious diseases. We combine the fun, flexible, and collaborative setting of a startup with industry-level compensation/stability, all in a scientific environment most akin to a well-run academic lab.
