The Immuno-Oncology group within the Molecular Profiling and Data Science Department is looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Associate Computational Scientist who values independent research in an open and collaborative working environment. You will participate in original studies that span from basic research to translation studies, directly impacting the lives of patients. You will also have the opportunity to develop novel computational methods from internal and external big data resources. You will join a diverse and inspiring team which cultivates discussion across scientists of differing backgrounds at the exciting intersection of genomics, technology development, machine learning, and immuno-oncology. We work closely with biological researchers from different scientific functions, especially the departments of Immunology and Inflammation, Oncology and Angiogenesis, and Precision Medicine, to address critical scientific questions.

In this role, a typical day might include the following:
• Lead computational efforts in the Immuno-Oncology (IO) field by developing or applying cutting-edges methods from single cell genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics and other sequencing technologies.
• Work in concert with IO pre-clinical and clinical teams to design next-generation sequencing experiments, draft data analysis plans, and provide critical analytics support.
• Prepare presentations and documentations for collaborators and senior management.
• Publish and present novel findings in peer-reviewed journals and conferences.
• Contribute to our team efforts in formulating analytical pipelines and benchmarked standards.

This job might be for you if:
• You are passionate about understanding and utilizing efficient computational techniques to address biological questions.
• Bring innovative thinking to multi-omics data analysis.
• Have a strong work ethic and are proactive in providing solutions to foster scientific collaborations and drive projects forward within Regeneron.
• Can effectively communicate with collaborators with various background
• Value teamwork and team excellence.

To be considered for this role, you must have a PhD degree in Computational Biology, Systems Biology, Quantitative Biology, Bioinformatics, Computer Science or related field. Experience with conducting bioinformatics analysis (e.g. single cell RNA-seq, single cell ATAC-seq, bulk transcriptomic analysis). Strong background (2+ years preferred) in at least in one of the following scripting languages: R, Python, MATLAB. Experience working with single cell analysis tools such as Seurat, Scanpy, etc. Experience working with clinical samples is a plus. Familiarity in working in a Linux environment, shell scripting and Jupyter Notebook environment. Experience with public transcriptomics database such as human cell atlas, mouse cell atlas, and TCGA is preferable. Experience with cloud-based big-data analytics and machine learning to develop predictive models of immunotherapy response is highly valued.
