Description

We  are excited to be expanding our scientific Data Science group in our Boston and Cambridge offices. We are looking for Senior Data Scientists and Scientific Software Developers to join or lead our Scientific Data Analytics Group.

Essential Duties & Responsibilities

Our Scientific Data Analytics Group is in charge of:

 

  • Understand chemical proteomics workflows and proteomics data structure to develop automated data process, analysis and visualization tool
  • Identify and integrate relevant internal and external data and knowledge resources to enable data mining in biological context
  • Working with in house, open-source and/or commercially available software platforms to enable target annotation and enrichment infrastructure and pipelines
  • Combine target annotation and analysis with chemical proteomics data to enable deep understanding of compound-target affinity relationships and their functions at system level cross cell lines, tissues, in the context of disease and healthy state
  • Enable intra-/ inter-experiment knowledge integration: define pathway, networks, co-regulators, upstream regulator, substrate analysis, others.
  • Build molecular phenotyping/ compound connectivity maps at protein/ phosphoprotein level and integration of compound protein binding profile and cellular functional profile
  • Be abreast with most current systems analysis methodology and algorithms and introduce them in-house when appropriate.
