Verge Genomics is looking for a computational biologist to develop algorithms, statistical methods, and software to analyze large-scale gene expression and genomic datasets. You will implement these methods to identify new disease targets and mechanisms, and drugs that target these disease gene networks. As one of the first employees at Verge, you will develop cutting-edge methods that will serve as the foundation of a revolutionary drug development model.
- Develop and implement methods for integrative analysis of microarray, RNA-sequencing, and GWAS data to identify gene networks involved in disease.
- Develop and implement novel pattern-matching methods for querying drug response databases with gene expression signatures.
- Integrate gene expression, behavioral, and biochemical datasets (and potentially patient EMR and prescription records), to predict which drugs are more likely to succeed in clinical trials
- Collaborate with internal and external research scientists in big pharma, small biotech, and patient advocacy organizations on analyzing genomic data for novel target discovery and drug development.
