Full time
We are looking for a Physician Scientist to join our Immune, Respiratory and Infectious Disease Therapeutic Area Genetics (TAG) team. The position will be responsible for the translation of human genetic evidence into therapeutically-actionable insights in Immune, Respiratory and Infectious Diseases.

In this role, a typical day might include the following:
•Design and contribute to large-scale genetic association studies and refined analysis that will enable interpretation of human genetic analyses.
•Apply human genetics to target discovery, select indications for drug programs and identify subgroups of patients who are more likely to respond to treatment through genetic analyses.
•Work with a multidisciplinary genetics team consisting of human genetics scientists, bioinformaticians, statistical geneticists, and other required staff to design, execute, and interpret genetics studies related to immunologic, infectious and respirologic diseases.

This job might be for you if you:
•Bring innovative thinking to large-scale genetic studies and analysis.
•Have a strong work ethic and are proactive in providing solutions to foster scientific collaborations and drive projects forward within Regeneron.
•Are a motivated teammate with a desire to pursue genetic discovery in a fast-paced multi-disciplinary environment.

To be considered for this role, you must have a PhD and/or MD with strong background in and knowledge of human genetics or genetic epidemiology. Training and experience in translational human genetics, genetic epidemiology (or related disciplines) and strong quantitative skills.  Proven ability to design and lead human genetics studies delivering medically-relevant findings. Ability to use medical knowledge to define relevant phenotypes for genetic association studies and to formulate innovative research questions. Familiarity with clinical genetics concepts and genetic models of disease. Experience leading complex human genetics research endeavors. Knowledge of different study designs and analyses including GWAS, exome or genome sequencing in cohort, case-control or family-based studies. Ability to integrate different data resources to translate initial findings. Experience with the use of genetics in combination with other “omics” technologies (eg. metabolomics, proteomics, RNA-seq). Familiarity with the applications of statistical genetics to gain medically-actionable insights including polygenic risk scores, quantitative traits analyses and Mendelian randomization. Familiarity with command line interface, programming languages and statistical software (eg. Python, R, STATA).
