Full time

The Target Information Group (TIG) is looking to hire a Scientist, who will collaborate closely with the Metabolic Therapeutic Focus area (TFA), and curate multiple internal databases. We provide an extensive searching of the scientific literature and databases to provide a detailed review of all relevant publications. This includes biologic and genetic analysis for targets of interest in the indicated disease state. Working as a member of TIG, utilizing expertise in metabolic systems, data analytics and search tools, we expect this person will conduct in-depth analysis of protein targets and/or target families. You will be assessing gene expression, protein structure/function, and biological/medical relevance for these families. Investigations may include the analysis of large data sets from human and mouse studies directed to understanding the molecular basis of human disease.

A day in the life of the Scientist - TIG may look like:
•Searching, assembling and translating the biology and genetics of target-disease associations and providing an assessment of the strengths and weakness of different analytical methods and individual studies.
•Working closely with members of each of the Regeneron TFA’s to identify and evaluate specific target(s) and disease indications and to deliver in a timely fashion, a balanced analysis for each topic
•Management of some of the various databases maintained by the TIG and provide for their expansion or upgrades when needed to ensure easy access by multiple research and development groups
•Contribution to the development and optimization of “knowledge base” intranet resources and facilitate archiving, sharing and leveraging of development program review information.
•Conducting text-based searching using state-of-the art tools involving natural language processing(e.g. Linguamatics)

This may be the role for you if:

  • You want to bring to bear your passion for science, but are ready to move away from the bench

  • You are the self-taught, default IT group specialist, and want to explore the intersection between data and biology in your new role

  • You want broad exposure to disease biology from many therapeutic areas

  • You want a role that is flexible in taking on new tasks and establishes credibility and rapport as well as communicates effectively with research colleagues and senior management

  • You enjoy probing large biological data sets and developing new tools to investigate large literature collections and proprietary databases

​ To be considered for this position you should submit a cover letter explaining your interest in this role, thanks! You should have a Ph.D. and 3+ yrs of industry experience in a highly collaborative environment, non-Phd's will be considered at an appropriate level. This experience should include a proven ability to identify key information sources and analyze public literature, to mine gene, protein, patent and proprietary databases and to prepare concise summaries on a range of topics. Self taught coders particularly encouraged to apply! Experience working with cross-functional teams or in a matrix environment is highly desired. A preference given to candidates with experience in bioinformatics and metabolism/diabetes/obesity.
