We have a very exciting opportunity for a Principal Scientist - Computational Biology in Research Beyond Borders to join a Global Pharmaceutical Company at their site in Germany.
RBB is a therapeutic area which focuses on developing innovative technologies to drive novel drug discovery projects forward. These technologies have a strong computational biology component that includes pipeline development, advanced data analysis and implementation of novel visualization methods and tools. Examples of such technologies include gene therapy and indication expansion.
In addition, you act as key contact to multiple RBB research groups with the goal of furthering disease related new therapeutic concepts from large-scale multi-omics datasets.
Tasks & responsibilities
*In your new role, you are responsible for specific projects in gCBDS and cooperate closely with members of RBB.
*You work with multiple omics data, including transcriptomics (RNAseq, scRNAseq), proteomics and genomics datasets, while operating automated standard analysis pipelines with Linux-based local HPC and cloud-based environments.
*The work with queuing- and modern pipelining systems (e.g. Nextflow) is also part of your new profile.
*With your expertise, you are the interface between the therapeutic area and the NGS laboratory and you are responsible for the definition, coordination and implementation of strategies for ongoing projects.
*Furthermore, you undertake extensive data analysis for the generation and testing of hypothesis in the context of new therapeutic concepts in cooperation with other members of the Computational Biology group or scientists from RBB.
