Job Description

The Genome Technologies and Computational Sciences (GTCS) group at Biogen is seeking a bioinformatics scientist/computational biologist to join in the mission of developing analytical algorithms, data processing pipelines and fit-for-purpose tools to support next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis needs in Gene Therapy Accelerator Unit (GTxAU). The goal of GTxAU is to develop a gene therapy pipeline from exploratory research through preclinical development. The scientist in this role will apply analytical skills and bioinformatics tools to analyze next generation sequencing data to guide the rational design of Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) capsids, evaluate promoters, and the selection of AAVs with desire tropism. The successful candidate will work closely with GTxAU scientists, computational biology experts, the NGS lab, and structural biologists to design and analyze data from various in vitro and in vivo studies.
