You would help design experiments and conduct analyses to nominate novel drug targets, enable patient enrichment strategies, and guide pre-clinical drug development decisions. You would communicate with colleagues across the organization and influence R&D at BMS, from target discovery through early-stage development.

Responsibilities

Collaborate with teams of multi-disciplinary scientists to define and execute analysis plans to address key gaps in early drug discovery programs using internal and external data (e.g. multi-omics, CRISPR, and single cell datasets)

Develop statistical models and computational tools to enable data-driven target prioritization and drug combo nomination

Drive implementation of predictive models to enable patient stratification, and illuminate biological mechanisms

Communicate findings and recommend follow up actions in multiple settings (including 1:1, seminars, group, and project meetings)

Work with external partners in academic and pre-competitve industrial collaborations (e.g. NIH Accelerating Medicines Partnership, Open Targets) to collect functional genomics data and integrative methods to empower future discovery efforts in immunology

PhD from a recognized institution in a quantitative field such as computational biology/ computer science/ statistics/math with a good understanding of biology OR PhD from a bio-related field such as genetics, genomics, molecular biology with a good grasp of quantitative knowledge

1-2 years of post-graduate experience in computational biology research

Experience analyzing and integrating high-dimensional molecular datasets such as multi-omics (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, proteomics etc) , single cell (CITE-seq, scRNA-seq, scATAC-seq), and/or CRISPR screen datasets

Proficiency with at least one high-level programming language such as R or Python

A good understanding of statistical methodologies and machine learning algorithms often applied in the computational biology/bioinformatics field

Track record (such as scientific publications) in driving and advancing research projects/programs with computational/bioinformatics approach
