Due to great commercial success, one of the UK's most exciting start-up companies is expanding their drug discovery function, and actively seeking a talented Senior Computational Systems Biologist to join their thriving team. Located in the heart of Cambridge, this award-winning business specialises in identifying and repurposing existing drugs so that they may be used as new treatment options for a host of rare diseases. This work has already had enormous impact on patients who had, until this time, incredibly limited treatment options available.
Working in a multi-disciplinary team with experts across a range of disciplines including Pharmacology, Bioinformatics, Data Science, Biocuration and Engineering, this is a rare opportunity where you will be able to see the impact of your work first hand.
As Senior Computational Systems Biologist, projects you may work on could include:
*Applying drug and disease matching algorithms to find novel drug repurposing opportunities for preclinical testing
*Elucidating drug and disease mechanisms of action from Omics and other data sources to assist pharmacologists in establishing an understanding of why a drug may treat a disease
*Optimising the company's drug repurposing workflows by investigating new ways of performing drug matching
The ideal candidate for this role will have:
*A PhD in Computational Biology, Systems Biology, Bioinformatics or similar
*Experience or knowledge of drug discovery and disease biology would be beneficial
*A proven track record of applying pathway and network analysis methods to investigate mechanisms of disease
*An expert in the analysis of -omics data from a variety of sources
*An excellent command of statistical programming languages such as R and Python
*Accomplished user of medical and biological databases to seek insight into mechanisms of disease
This is a fantastic position that would be well-suited to a curious, talented Computational/Systems Biologist, who is keen to see the real-world impact of their work. This opportunity is based in a modern, accessible office in the centre of Cambridge They company offers exciting projects, and a flexible work environment that encourages a good work-life balance.
