Program Leader to Sr. Director, Bioinformatics - United States
- Our company is committed to making a difference in the lives of patients through scientific discovery.
- Rigorous science is at the core of everything we do to discover, develop and deliver novel medicines that will meet serious unmet medical needs in oncology and other diseases.
- Translational Sciences at our company has been established to bridge the research findings at the Discovery and Development levels within each of our clinical programs.
- In collaboration with academic, clinical and industrial scientists, this group utilizes the knowledge that has been developed around each of our existing programs to examine patient samples from human studies to validate specific target modulation, to identify biological changes that correlate with target modulation as well as study patient characteristics that could be utilized to predict response to therapy.
- The results are used to enrich and refine the Development program strategy as well as inform and guide future Discovery efforts.
- The Translational Sciences group at our company is seeking an individual with an MD or PhD degree, or with equivalent experience, and 5 -15 years of scientific training and experience in the fields of medicine, cell biology, immunology, molecular biology, or bioinformatics with particular expertise to develop methods and identify software tools for working with the program leads within Translational Sciences to analyze complex biological data sets from different translational platforms.
- Our company is focused on developing targeted therapies and immune-oncology agents for cancer, and the individual will be responsible for developing novel bio-marker strategies for use in human clinical studies.
- The individual will also have the opportunity to explore new technology platforms in collaboration with a number of internal and external investigators and implement these new strategies into human clinical trials.
- We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to work in a collaborative laboratory environment focused on pushing the boundaries of science in the context of interpreting human clinical studies.
- Develop methods and identify software tools for working with the program leads within Translational Sciences to analyze complex biological data sets from different translational platforms.
