    Opportunity: Sr. Scientist, Bioinformatics @ Ribometrix -- Durham, NC (US)
    Submitted by Kevin de la Cruz; posted on Tuesday, April 27, 2021


    Ribometrix is committed to delivering on the promise of addressing human disease through novel scientific insight into the structure of RNA. Unlike traditional drug discovery methodologies that target the product of RNA (proteins), we believe small molecule therapeutics can be designed to interact with RNA to deliver a meaningful therapeutic benefit to patients living with disease.

    We are a team of individuals driven by the spirit of innovation, collaboration, empowerment, and integrity who are committed to the goal of helping patients with our novel therapeutic approach.

    If you are looking for an opportunity to pioneer new science, collaborate with great people, and ultimately help those in need, then Ribometrix may be the place for you.

    We are seeking a highly motivated Senior Scientist to join our RNA Biology group and contribute to our bioinformatics capabilities. This person will be part of the bioinformatics team that is responsible for implementing and developing NGS software, developing and validating biological insights from complex datasets, and creating visualization methods and will have a key role in identifying and characterizing RNA targets for the Ribometrix platform. The position provides opportunities to collaborate extensively with other members of the RNA Biology, Lead Discovery, and Chemistry teams and to contribute to both the science and strategy of treating disease by targeting RNA. An ideal candidate will have experience with algorithm design for NGS data, have the capability to integrate genomics data in novel analyses, and have excellent understanding of key bioinformatic resources, including ontologies.


    Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
    • Design algorithms to answer biological questions and validate with statistical methods.
    • Implement existing NGS software in workflows and develop software to meet unmet needs.
    • Create unique visualization methods to communicate results to wet-lab biologists and leadership.
    • Perform complex data analysis and interpretation to generate conclusions and next steps that drive the science forward.
    • Support multiple tasks and maintain attention to detail in a fast-paced environmentWork collaboratively and lead by example to promote our Ribometrix Core Values: Integrity, Collaboration, Innovation, Empowerment, Resilience, and Fun.


    • BS in Bioinformatics or related field with 18+/ years experience; MS in Bioinformatics or related field and 15+ years experience; or PhD in Bioinformatics or related field and 6+ years experience (Level will be awarded commensurate with experience).
    • Extensive knowledge of next-generation sequencing (NGS) and associated technologies (e.g., RNA-seq) is required.
    • Experience integrating genomics and/or transcriptomics data types is required.
    • A track record of algorithm design is required.
    • Experience with RNA biology (e.g., mRNA quality control, RNA processing, or lncRNAs) is preferred.
    • Experience interrogating RNA structure, and/or analyzing RNA chemical modification data (e.g., SHAPE or DMS) is preferred.
    • Experience with SQL databases and/or interfacing with a LIMS system is preferred.
    • Strong initiative, problem solving skills, desire to learn, attention to detail, and ability to effectively organize and prioritize are required.
    • Ability to work independently and as part of a diverse and dynamic team is required.
    • Strong initiative, problem solving skills, desire to learn, attention to detail, and ability to effectively organize and prioritize are required.
