Who you are
The ideal candidate has a PhD in biological sciences, with 1-3 years’ post-graduate experience in the laboratory conducting their own research, and an excellent knowledge of molecular and cellular biology. Candidates with experience of research in an industrial setting will be preferred. The role is for a scientist to use their expertise to search and analyze the scientific literature, define the molecular pathology of a biological process or a disease pathology, and recreate the signaling pathway map that describe it in a clear and logical manner.
- Deep analysis of the scientific literature to define the molecular mechanisms of a cellular process in a normal/diseased cell.
- Reconstruct the molecular mechanism in the form of a pathway map in accordance with the existing research, following the internally-defined mapping rules.
- Update and maintain pre-existing pathway maps
- Accomplish objectives to tight deadlines.
- Adhere to editorial publishing schedules and quality standards.
- Establish, build and maintain relationships with customers and stakeholders.
- Contribute to the development of less experienced team members.
- Keep up to date with the latest scientific knowledge in the biological sciences.
- Suggest ways to improve the map reconstruction process and collaborate across departments to implement the improvements.
