    Opportunity: Senior Data Scientist @ Mosaic Therapeutics (MOSAIC) -- Hinxton, UK
    Submitted by Charlie Hathaway; posted on Thursday, May 13, 2021

    BACKGROUND

    Mosaic Therapeutics (MOSAIC) was founded in 2020 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Genome Research Limited (GRL) with the aim of applying a decade of ground-breaking work in the Sanger Institute's Translational Cancer Genomics Laboratory to identify selective vulnerabilities in cancer cells that can be exploited therapeutically. MOSAIC's formation was enabled and its activities are being driven by the vision and management of Mathew Garnett and Adrian Ibrahim. MOSAIC also continues to benefit as a result of strong support from GRL, as GRL's most recent start-up company. We are looking for a Senior Data Scientist to provide data science support across a range of drug discovery activities using advanced statistical and artificial intelligence algorithms incorporating large scale patient, genomic and functional datasets to guide drug discovery.

    Our capabilities are based on a unique twin platform of experimental CRISPR gene-editing in next-generation tumour organoids and advanced machine-learning and statistical algorithms to selectively identify and exploit the vulnerabilities of different types of cancers. We draw upon a breath of public and proprietary curated data, validated computational pipelines, together with our deep knowledge of cancer therapeutics to provide data-driven insights for cancer drug discovery. The team at MOSAIC have pioneered the use of drug and genetic screens in next-generation cancer models for drug discovery, have generated widely used reference datasets and analytical tools, and have extensive experience working with pharmaceutical partners to develop new targets and therapies.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Use a range of computational skills to provide innovative solutions to complex biological problems to gain new insights into multiple aspects of drug discovery.
