A major multinational pharmaceutical company, headquartered in the Northeast, has retained Bench International exclusively to identify an exceptional individual to lead the bioinformatics function within the Company's Global Drug Safety Evaluation organization. The Company recently has committed significant investment in emerging technologies dedicated to Drug Safety in order to make better, earlier decisions about which molecules should move forward in Development. Such technologies include proteomics, genomics, imaging and advanced pathology methods, which are used to generate fundamental data from assays performed in a wide range of systems including, cell-based assays, animal studies and clinical trials. 

The role of this position will be to work across multidisciplinary teams, including Drug Safety, Clinical Research and Drug Discovery, to develop and implement systems and applications for annotating and for visualization and mining of complex data sets obtained from the application of such technologies in the laboratory and the clinic. Additionally, the incumbent will have responsibility to integrate such data with conventional toxicology and clinical safety information and to develop new databases of molecular toxicology information. The incumbent will have a significant role in interoperation of information gained from these analyses and in guiding the company to apply such results appropriately to drug development decisions. 

The qualified individual will have a PhD, or equivalent, in life sciences or pharmaceutical chemistry with an emphasis on computational biology or bioinformatics. Experience in toxicology or other pre-clinical sciences will be a benefit. A substantial track record of achievement as evidenced by significant publication in peer-reviewed journals is highly desirable. The incumbent will have substantial experience in the use, development and applications of relational databases and querying, data mining and visualization tools as well associated programming languages (e.g., Perl, UNIX, JAVA, HTML). The successful candidate will have strong interpersonal, management and communications skills, as well as the ability and experience to work effectively within complex, matrixed teams and will be adaptable to changing needs and priorities.
