    Opportunity: Associate COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGIST (#931) @ The Broad Institute -- Cambridge, MA (US)
    Submitted by Laura Bonfitto; posted on Friday, December 07, 2012

    BACKGROUND

    The Broad Institute was launched to pioneer a new model of collaborative biomedical science that would transform medicine. To accomplish these goals, we have built an amazing team of talented Broadies who work together to realize this transformation.

    The Broad community includes professional scientists from many disciplines, administrative staff, and students. We seek to cultivate an interdisciplinary, goal-oriented work environment that unleashes scientific creativity and empowers our people to pursue ambitious and critical projects. Our work transcends traditional academic boundaries, giving Broad employees and affiliates access to an unparalleled biomedical research community across the Harvard and MIT communities and beyond.

    We are always looking for new Broadies to join our team and help us tackle important problems at the cutting edge of science. The Broad Institute is committed to providing its employees with a competitive compensation and benefits package. We recognize the need for our employees to have a balance between work and personal life. To that end, our benefit plans and options reflect our desire to promote an environment that supports the health, diversity, and general wellbeing of our employees. All Broadies also have access to world-class research and state of the art technology and are fully supported in their professional development, pushing the envelope for further growth.

    The Broad Institute is an equal opportunity employer.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    The Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard is looking to hire an exceptional candidate to join an initiative whose goal is to translate cutting-edge genomics into novel therapeutics. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team of computational biologists, genome biologists and clinicians who are working together to understand how genes that normally protects us, can turn our immune system against us. Gaining such an understanding will allow us to identify therapeutic leads that can subvert autoimmune and inflammatory processes and potentially help diabetic patients, for example.

    We are looking for individuals who are enthusiastic about taking a hands-on, problem-solving approach, and collaborating with engineers and scientists in a collegial environment that is infused with intellectual rigor. The successful candidate will be an innovative and analytical thinker, and will enjoy working in an interdisciplinary team.

    The Broad Institute provides a vibrant research environment with close links to MIT, Harvard and the Harvard-affiliated hospitals across Boston. Being a member of our initiative will provide the opportunity for your contributions to be utilized and recognized across the vast global network of researchers in the fields of genomics and chemical biology.

    Characteristic Duties:
    • Develop data analysis strategies, write algorithms, and deploy computational tools for the exploration of large data sets.
    • Conceive, implement and test statistical models; work with wet-lab researchers to translate these models into testable experiments; analyze the data produced from these experiments.
    • Explore novel data visualization and text-mining tools with an emphasis on integrating diverse data types.
    • Implement algorithms and develop software for application in disease pathway discovery.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • B.S in Computer Science, Engineering, Math, Statistics, Physics, or a related quantitative discipline
    • Practical experience with programming languages Java and C; and analytical programs MATLAB, R, or Python
    • Experience with computational analysis, algorithm development and statistics
    A background in biology is not required, though an interest in applying one's analytical and programming skills to developing research tools is necessary.
