Job Description - Senior Research Investigator (1700879) We invite applications from highly motivated candidates for a Quantitative Biologist/analyst working on Next generation sequencing data analysis using computational biology tools. The successful candidate will support various data analysis needs of the Next generation sequencing core group which supports all BMS therapeutic areas.

We are looking for quantitative/computational scientists to work at the exciting interface of mathematics, single-cell genomics, and cancer biology, in close collaboration with experimentalists and clinicians. The scientist is expected to exhibit resourcefulness and independence, developing new statistical models of high-dimensional data and implementing computational pipelines. Previous experience working with and developing new NGS data analysis tool is desirable.

Requirements

Qualifications • Ph.D with two years experience or Masters degree in the quantitative sciences (i.e.,Bioinformatics, physics, mathematics or computer science) with 5-6 years of experience. Candidates with a degree in the life sciences but with a proven quantitative research record will also be considered.

• Expertise in scientific programming, e.g. Python, Perl or R. Proficiency working in a Linux environment, with large data sets, computer clusters, and databases.

• Research publications in computational biology, machine learning or physics is desirable. The ideal candidate will have experience dealing with NGS data and/or cancer biology.

• Effective communication skills, both written and oral.

• Above all, a passion for solving difficult research problems at the frontiers of big data in Biology

A research duo finds that science and technology graduate students who turn away from academic careers do so because of changes in their own interests.

Students whose classmates are interested in science are more likely to think about a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, a new study says.
