Computational biologist - epigenomics

Organization: 
Seven Bridges Genomics
Job Location: 
Cambridge, MA
Job Description: 

You know genomics and you like to share your knowledge. You have broad competence in the field and expert knowledge of some part of it. You know how to tell good information from bad; how to draw interesting and intellectually responsible results from good information; and how to communicate those results in an accurate and engaging way. You are ready to refine your knowledge and to keep learning about a quickly changing field.

You know enough about upstream ChIP-Seq lab protocols to be able to interpret their results, and you are familiar with motif-analysis tools. You understand the state of the art: you can explain the IDR framework as well as tools like PeakSeq and MACS. You know the basics of peak detection and normalization with controls. You’re familiar with ENCODE data and are conversant with other major databases, data sets, and standards.
You know the relevant biology, including epigenetics and the mechanics of transcription factors and chromatin modifications.

You will work with our industry-leading team and data to plan, write, and publish articles and results. You will find the best venues and methods to explain your results to the community. You have academic publications, a good blog, or other experience writing about science.

We are also looking for a strong cultural fit, as we value our team more than anything else and we like to learn from each other and share the knowledge. In return, we offer a relaxed and open work environment, great work conditions, and first-hand involvement in one of the most exciting fields of science that is laying down the foundations of modern personalized medicine.
