Alzheimer’s disease is a complex disease affecting millions of people in the US and worldwide, with no disease modifying therapeutic. Vivid Genomics is a startup focused on using genomics to understand and define heterogeneity in Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias, with the ultimate goal of changing the way Alzheimer’s disease patients are stratified for clinical trials and drug development.
We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, process-driven, and highly motivated Genomic Data Scientist to work as part of the Vivid Genomics team, in a full-time position to work on cutting edge machine learning problems with large genomics datasets.
The successful candidate will be comfortable with developing cloud-friendly pipelines, integrating and analyzing multiple datasets for genetic association studies, and statistical analysis of variation and its effect in Alzheimer’s disease and related phenotypes. As part of this project you will have the opportunity to work with academic and private collaborators. You will be expected to travel for meetings and conferences where required.
