Our Functional Genomics program studies what roles variants classified as "of unknown significance", "possibly damaging" and "likely deleterious" play in human health and disease. Your job will include taking deep dives on suspected pathogenic SNPs and other variants to determine if they are indeed deleterious to protein/cellular/systems-level function, taking the SNP from gene(s) to phenotype.
In this position at ICR, you'll get to:
- Research the potential functional impact of any given SNP on protein or cellular function: from RNA to protein to cell to systems-level analysis including work on known disease-associated SNPs and VUSs in the context of various human primary and iPSC-derived cell types
- Project manage out-sourced work with CROs to maximize your productivity
- Collaborate with other ICR scientists to solve complex human medical mysteries
Please apply if you have:
- An advanced degree in biomedical science
- In-depth knowledge of and experience with modern molecular and cellular biology techniques, preferably experience doing functional genomics
- Experience project-managing out-sourced work with CROs
- A solid background in human genetics
And you'll need:
- The ability to work in the United States without sponsorship
- To have an easygoing, hard-working personality
Starting base pay range: $125,000/yr - $165,000/yr
Starting additional compensation range: $7,500/yr - $17,500/yr
Starting position title and compensation are commensurate with experience.
