Surrozen is a biotechnology company focused on discovering and developing novel regenerative medicines that unlock the powerful self-renewal properties of the body through specific control of the Wnt signaling pathway.

Surrozen was founded by five leading-edge scientists: K. Christopher Garcia, Ph.D., Roel Nusse, Ph.D. and Calvin Kuo, M.D., Ph.D. from Stanford University; Claudia Janda, Ph.D. from the Princess Maxima Center for Pediatric Oncology; and Hans Clevers, M.D, Ph.D. from the Hubrecht Institute and Princess Maxima Center. Each has conducted extensive research on Wnt signaling, with findings that together shape Surrozens technology and approach to therapeutic development.

We are currently recruiting a Bioinformatics Scientist to join our Discovery Biology group. This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented, enthusiastic, and motivated analyst/scientist to work in an exciting, collaborative environment with great colleagues who are dedicated to advancing Surrozens mission.

Responsibilities

* Analyze complex in-house scRNA-seq data with many experimental conditions in a range of tissues to contribute to mechanism of action and biomarker studies

* Interrogate in-house and public bioinformatics data such as functional genomics (_e.g_., RNA-seq, scRNA-seq, spatially resolved transcriptomics, ATAC-seq, Chip-seq) and imaging data
