    Opportunity: Data Scientist -- Bioinformatics @ A world leader in innovative approaches to drug discovery -- Cambridge, UK
    Submitted by Eugene McDaid; posted on Monday, July 22, 2019



    A world leader in innovative approaches to drug discovery, and global pharmaceutical company based in Cambridge is currently recruiting for an experience Data Scientist to join their thriving bioinformatics team. This role would be responsible for providing expert statistical guidance to support across multi-disciplinary teams throughout the drug discovery, pre-clinical and clinical pipeline.

    The ideal candidate would be highly technical with expertise in either mathematical modelling, predictive analytics or machine learning as applied to complex biological data sets.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented Bioinformatics Data Scientist/Mathematical Modeller who loves the challenge of developing innovative approaches to analyse complex, multi-layered biological data. This company is making huge advancements in the field of cancer and neurology, and this position would have a huge impact on the lives of real patients.


    Primary responsibilities may include:
    • Developing and implementing novel analytic approaches to analyse diverse multi-layered omics data to identify novel drug targets and biomarkers
    • Develop predictive models using mathematical, machine learning, AI or statistical approaches for biomarker development and patient stratification.
    • Integration and meta-analysis of public and proprietary data sets to generate testable hypothesis


    The ideal candidate will have:
