    Opportunity: Senior Scientist -- Human Genetics @ A life sciences company -- Germany
    Submitted by Eugene McDaid; posted on Friday, May 07, 2021



    Embedded in a growing Global Computational Biology and Digital Sciences Unit you will have an impact on reinventing R&D, thereby actively contributing to the discovery of breakthrough therapies that will increase human health.

    As Senior Scientist you are part of our newly established Human Genetics team. You are responsible for the identification of new and novel therapeutic targets, biomarkers and additional target information by investigating the human genome.

    The focus is to utilize human genetic data to further drive discovery. Our work supports all therapeutic areas with top quality data analytics platforms to ultimately drive innovation and increase the health of our patients.


    • As Senior Scientist you are fully responsible for driving portfolio innovation and success, maintaining a high-performance culture and thus ensuring a seamless, intradepartmental communication and collaboration.
    • You are working across all Therapeutic Areas and Computational Biology teams while ensuring that IT collaboration is always up to speed with the current need and technologies.
    • Ensuring a smooth collaboration with experimental, clinical and bioinformatics scientists is what you are responsible for to support the design of studies for target and biomarker discovery.
    • Together with other team members you are accountable for the evaluation and development of cutting-edge techniques in the area of human genetics.
    • You develop novel methods for genetic association test to targets. In addition, you are responsible for the integration of data such as GWAS summary statistics with eQTLs, transcriptomics, epigenetics and gene networks.
    • The establishment of analytical methods and the development of machine learning applications on novel data types is also part of your role.


    • PhD in Statistical Genetics, Computer Science, statistics or related fields. Post Doc experience, preferably in an international industry setting, would be of advantage
    • Expert knowledge in Human Genetics, as well as advanced data analytics skills paired with experience in Biobanks and huge data integration efforts. Expertise in statistical analytics and machine learning in Genetics is required
    • Professional experience in drug discovery and pipeline driven environments is a plus
    • Established international network from previous experience with links to academia
    • Strong communication and interpersonal skills with the ability to present and explain findings to people not familiar with specific topics
    • Team player with the urge of getting teams to work together


    This is a highly challenging, technical role offering a competitive remuneration package and some great benefits.


    Please do not hesitate to contact Harvey Uppal at huppal[at] or call (+44) 121 616 3407 to discuss this opportunity further.
