Computational Biology Data Scientist Novartis NIBR San Diego
Location: San Diego, California
Internal Number: 334682BR
200+! That's the number of data scientists in the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) that are helping Novartis to reimage medicine to improve and extend people's lives. NIBR is the innovation engine of Novartis, focusing on powerful new technologies that have the potential to help produce therapeutic breakthroughs for patients.
The NIBR research site in San Diego, CA is seeking a computational biology data scientist with extensive experience analyzing Omics data (i.e., bulk and single cell RNAseq, spatial transcriptomic, epi-genomic, proteomic, genetic) to support drug discovery research in Regenerative Medicine. You'll work at the cutting edge of data science to solve important challenges by applying your technical abilities for curating, integrating, and mining complex biological data. You'll work closely with a multicultural and multidisciplinary team composed of biologists, chemists, and high throughput screening scientists to develop complex human cellular models that will be used to identify molecules that promote healthy tissue regeneration. The successful candidate will be highly motivated, creative and collaborative, and will possess effective communication skills.
Responsibilities will include: * Develop analytical workflows for the integration and mining of large collections of single cell RNASeq and other Omic data sets * Collaborate with teams developing human cell-based models of disease, based on key transitional cell types defined by analysis of integrated multi-omic data sets. * Contribute to drug discovery efforts by designing and analyzing Omic data sets derived from novel human cell models for the identification of molecules that promote healthy tissue regeneration. * Clearly communicating key findings through interactive data visualizations and presentations, and the development of facile data mining platforms (e.g., Spotfire, R Shiny).
