Exciting 2024 Summer Internship Opportunity in Translational Genetics Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals! (Location San Diego)

We are looking for a passionate intern to join our team in San Diego and gain hands-on experience in computational biology. As an intern, you will work on siRNA target validation for neurodegenerative diseases. You will use state-of-the-art computational tools, artificial intelligence (AI) and delve into extensive omics databases to identify and validate potential siRNA targets. Your work will be pivotal in making a tangible impact on drug discovery for neurodegenerative disorders.

Here's what you'll do:

  • Compiling a bioinformatics workflow to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and multi-omics data (genetics and RNA-seq, scRNA-seq, proteomics data etc) to identify neurodegenerative disease target
  • Conduct in-depth computational validation using sophisticated in silico data and models.
  • Analyze and compile crucial datasets, contributing directly to our understanding of neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Exploring the therapeutic potential of new siRNA targets and publishing your groundbreaking findings.

Who we are looking for:

  • A current student in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or Biostatistics, with a passion for making a difference in the medical field.
  • Skilled in programming (R or Python), with a solid foundation in data processing and omics data analysis.
  • Eager to apply your knowledge in a real-world setting, with a particular interest in neurodegeneration and drug discovery.

This is a temporary full-time, non-exempt position requiring your on-site presence to foster collaboration and innovation. If you're ready to contribute to significant advancements in healthcare and have the qualifications we're looking for, we'd love to hear from you!

Join us in our mission to unlock new therapeutic avenues in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases. Apply now to embark on a fulfilling summer internship that promises not just professional growth but the opportunity to make a real difference!
