Regeneron hiring Associate Scientist – Bioinformatics (Molecular Profiling and Data Science) in Tarrytown, New York, United States

We are looking for an Associate Scientist – Bioinformatics to assist in the development and maintenance of bioinformatics applications and analysis pipelines running on the Amazon Web Services cloud instances and on-premises computing platforms with an emphasis on developing and implementing new analytical approaches. You will primarily collaborate with other scientists in the Bioinformatics core subgroup of Molecular Profiling and Data Science, and the Pre-therapeutic Target Discovery (PTTD) department at Regeneron, in connection to high throughput phenotyping assays and gene expression analysis for mouse gene knockout experiments. The bioinformatics workflows typically perform statistical analysis on large amounts of quantitative data to determine the effects of gene loss-of-function mutations on metabolism, blood chemistry, hematology, body composition, splenic immune cells and behavior. Image data and annotations are also used to study temporal and spatial patterns of gene expression detected with a lacZ gene reporter constructs. You will develop and implement new algorithms, software and analytic methods in support of existing and new phenotyping assays, as well as analysis of accumulated data for 1000+ gene knockout experiments. The role requires understanding of complex workflow assembly and biostatistics analysis automation. You will help develop and maintain bioinformatics analysis and data reporting platforms supporting PTTD department.

In this role, a typical day might include performing the following:

  • Work with experimentalists in PTTD to understand the scientific drivers of their bioinformatics needs.
  • Develop and maintain automated analysis workflows for a variety of scientific purposes.
  • Use on-premises and remote computing platforms to automate and accelerate analyses.
  • Identify or develop novel data analysis algorithms and software.
  • Work with other bioinformaticians to enhance existing pipelines, share methodologies, and develop best practices.
  • Effectively communicate bioinformatics methodologies and scientific approaches to a variety of technical audiences.

This Job Might Be For You If

  • You enjoy working productively in a fast-paced collaborative environment.
  • You have an eye for detail and pride yourself on the quality of your work.
  • With your sleeves rolled up, you work on current problems while thinking of future solutions.
  • You have excellent interpersonal and communication skills.

To be considered for the role, you must have a PhD in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or related field as well as experience with conducting bioinformatics analysis and building pipelines (e.g. data integration, biostatistics, querying databases, etc.). Strong background (2+ years) in Python or R. Familiarity in working in a Linux environment command-line environment, including shell scripting. Strong familiarity with biostatistics, as well as advanced data plotting with Python or R packages. Familiarity with code version control systems such as git, subversion, CVS. Can effectively communicate complex concepts to collaborators from a wide range of backgrounds. A background in a biological field (eg. genetics, genomics, immunology, etc), preferred. Experience developing Python and shell scripts as command line applications, preferred. 2+ years of experience working with database queries, APIs and database management systems such as MySQL and Oracle, preferred.
