The ideal candidate should have a strong combined background in computer science, immunology and molecular biology, as well as experience in bioinformatic analyses of NGS data from different sequencing platforms.

Responsibilities:
- Develop and refine programs to analyze NGS data on antigen receptor repertoire
sequencing.
- Automate NGS analysis on antigen receptor repertoire sequencing.
- Evaluate novel engineered mouse models based on NGS analysis.
- Extend analysis pipelines for BAC and L TVEC sequencing applications.
- Extend analysis pipelines for exome and whole genome sequencing applications of human
and mouse samples.
- Apply and develop computational methods to model and refine protein structures based on
available experimental data.
- Model protein interactions (e.g. antigen/receptor) using computational structural biology tools.
- Set up and follow collaborations within and outside the company to acquire structural data for
proteins of interest.

Requirements

This position requires a minimum of a  Ph.D degree in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering or related fields, with 1-3 years research experience analysis of NGS data.
