At Bristol Myers Squibb, we are inspired by a single vision - transforming patients' lives through science. In oncology, hematology, immunology and cardiovascular disease - and one of the most diverse and promising pipelines in the industry - each of our passionate colleagues contribute to innovations that drive meaningful change. We bring a human touch to every treatment we pioneer. Join us and make a difference.
We have recently re-created this role and started a new search!
We are seeking a collaborative and innovative scientist to join the Immunology, Cardiovascular, & Fibrosis (ICF) Computational Biology team. You would be responsible for helping advance Bristol Myers Squibb's cardiovascular pipeline through the application of bioinformatics, machine learning, network analysis, and statistics approaches on omics data sets. You would help design experiments and conduct analyses to nominate novel drug targets, enable patient enrichment strategies, and guide pre-clinical drug development decisions. You would communicate with colleagues across the organization and influence R&D at BMS, from target discovery through early-stage development.
Responsibilities:
- Represent the Computational Biology team for cardiovascular translational research activities
- Collaborate with teams of multi-disciplinary scientists to define and execute analysis plans to address scientific questions using internal and external omics datasets
- Drive implementation of predictive models that can illuminate biological mechanisms and enable patient stratification
- Communicate findings and recommend follow up actions in multiple settings (including 1:1, seminars, group, and project meetings)
Qualifications:
- Ph.D. in bioinformatics, computational biology, engineering, statistics, molecular biology, immunology, genetics, or similar. Or MS plus additional relevant experience.
- Demonstrated ability to advance multi-disciplinary team projects
- Proficiency with at least one high-level programming language such as R or Python for data analysis and reproducible research practices
- Experience analyzing high-dimensional molecular datasets such as RNA-Seq, Exome and Whole Genome Sequencing, single-cell sequencing, high-throughput proteomics, and multiplex flow cytometry
- Working knowledge of statistical tests and machine learning algorithms and their application to health care datasets
- Scientific curiosity with an ability to identify questions bioinformatics approaches can address, and the skills to develop solutions both independently and collaboratively
- Strong communication, data presentation, and visualization skills
- Background in cardiovascular diseases (e.g. heart failure, cardiomyopathies, etc.) is a plus
