Job ID: R-92415
Location: South San Francisco, CA, US 94083

The Department of Genome Analysis Unit at Amgen South San Francisco (ASF) is looking for a Computational Biology/Bioinformatics Scientist with expertise in analyzing large-scale omics data and in handing high-content NGS RNA-seq and single-cell RNA-seq data. The primary responsibilities would be to conduct computational and statistical analyses on RNA-seq, proteomics, metabolomics, flow cytometry and other high-content data from in-house data as well as public datasets for disease/patient stratification and biomarker discovery. The tasks require applying sophisticated statistical methods and/or deep-learning machine learning models. Experience with analytical method development is preferable.

The Computational Biology/Bioinformatics Scientist will work with biologists, especially in immuno-oncology as well as cardiovascular relevant disease fields to leverage information on our targeted biological pathways along with computational algorithms to manage and mine internal and external NGS sequencing and other high-content databases. The successful candidate is expected to interface with the local statistical genetics/computational biology/bioinformatics community, particularly in evaluating new opportunities that advance the discovery and application of biomarkers.

Basic Qualifications

Doctorate Degree

OR

Master's degree and 4 years statistical genetics experience

OR

Bachelor's degree and 6 years statistical genetics experience

Preferred Qualifications

PhD in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Mathematics, Statistics, Statistical Genetics with five or more years of experience in relevant fields

A working knowledge of applied mathematics or statistics to analyze large-scale omics data sets/biobanks

Ability to translate biological and medical questions into analytical models providing actionable results

Programming experience in languages such as R, Python or Matlab

Enjoys working in collaborative team environment

Record of establishing and leading lead cross-functional teams

A strong scientific background with training in genetics and a proven track record of productivity

Strong written and oral communication skills, self-motivation, independence and leadership

Experience understanding the sources of bias arising from NGS high-content platforms, especially RNA-seq and single-cell RNA-seq
