Job DescriptionResearch Scientist, Computational BiologyProduct Attributes Sciences, Analytical Ops, Process DevelopmentJob OverviewThe Research Scientist will be responsible for dissecting and analyzing large amounts of datasets generated at the molecular level, e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics, in order to gain insight into the biology of cell therapy products. They will work in a cross-functional team to enhance in-process attribute and product understanding to identify biomarkers predictive of manufacturability. In this role, the ideal candidate will create or select mathematical models, develop simulations, and perform pattern analysis of biological systems to identify opportunities for continuous process improvement.We are seeking a highly motivated and passionate Computational Biologist build analytical models to observe trends, discover patterns, and use that information to predict process performance and product manufacturability. The successful candidate will utilize bioinformatic tools to enhance understanding of key pathways that drive T cell response, proliferation, and differentiation within product manufacturing along with elucidating the mechanism of action of final product. The candidate will also be responsible for establishing and documenting the workflow for bioinformatic platforms from analysis through data visualization. The successful candidate will represent Analytical Development in multiple cross-functional teams projects and opportunity to learn about process development and enable next generation of cell therapy development using computational biology approaches.Job Responsibilities and Duties
