At Boston Children's Hospital, the quality of our care - and our inclusive hospital working environment - lies in the diversity of our people. With patients from local communities and 160 countries around the world, we're committed to reflecting the spectrum of their cultures, while opening doors of opportunity for our team. Here, different talents pursue common goals. Voices are heard and ideas are shared. Join us, and discover how your unique contributions can change lives. Yours included.
Dr. Leslie Kean's system immunology lab is looking for a talented and highly motivated computational biologist to join our multidisciplinary research team. We are looking for a quantitative individual with experience in transcriptomic analyses, proficiency in R/Python and the ability to communicate the results and ideas to others. Ideally, you have demonstrated experience analyzing a broad range of genomic datasets.
Who We Are Dr. Kean's laboratory is working to solve the mystery of immune recognition and immune tolerance. Immune recognition is the process by which the immune system differentiates between healthy cells and both abnormal cells and external pathogens. Immune tolerance is the process by which the immune system specifically turns itself off to avoid autoimmune diseases. We use a variety of genomic approaches, including single cell RNAseq, to understand the role that disease-fighting T cells of the immune system play in cancer, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Principal duties and responsibilities include:
Analyze large-scale single cell RNAseq data
Integrate clinical data and biomedical knowledge
Visualize, interpret, and communicate the results of your analyses
Manage diverse genomic data from clinical collaborators on a cloud platform
Automate analytic pipelines on a cloud platform
Design accessible interfaces for data exploration by collaborators
A bachelor's degree (master's preferred) in Computational Biology, Biomedical informatics, Bioengineering, Biophysics, or a related field.
Hands-on experience working with large genomic datasets
Experience in developing robust data analysis pipelines in R or python
Ability to convey complex computational results to colleagues from various disciplines
Ability to learn and work independently as part of a collaborative team
