We are seeking a highly motivated and collaborative Bioinformatics Scientist to join our Translational Genomics group and help drive the increased use of functional genomic approaches across the Genentech Research organization. Our Translational Genomics efforts span the interface of human genetics, functional genomics, molecular biology, disease model engineering, and advanced computational methodology. This group works closely with our disease area scientists to identify new therapeutic hypotheses and advance transformative medicines.
You will work as part of a team of researchers working in a fast-paced and highly collaborative environment to address important questions from our research community. You will be expected to take a leading role in the development and application of computational and statistical methods to maximize the integration of insights from human genetics with those from functional genomics. We will expect you to leverage the opportunities that arise from cellular profiling in relevant tissues and cell types and high throughout perturbation approaches in cellular and other models, to generate robust functional inference that advances understanding of disease biology. You will work very closely with the rest of our Translational Genomics team and Therapeutic Area scientists, as well as with the broader team of computational biologists and bioinformaticians at Genentech.
