The Company

Dyno Therapeutics is reshaping the gene therapy landscape through AI-powered vectors. Through the application of our transformative technologies and strategic partnerships with leaders in gene therapy, we believe a future with life changing gene therapies for millions of people is within reach.

Our team includes world-class molecular and synthetic biologists, protein engineers and gene therapy scientists working alongside software engineers, data scientists, and machine learning experts. Dyno was named Xconomy's 2020 start-up of the year and Endpoints 11 in 2021!

The Role

The Computational Biology team is responsible for analyzing biological data in a statistically rigorous manner and applying the resulting insights to subsequent rounds of experiments. In addition to developing methods for processing sequencing data from high-throughput viral screens, we collaborate with molecular biologists to design new experiments and approaches to data generation. The team communicates findings to experimental biologists and machine learning scientists with effective visualization and education. The Computational Biology team works closely with other teams and is instrumental in enabling decision-making based on the data collected at Dyno.

How You Will Contribute

As a Computational Biologist you will develop methods and build tools to analyze and process next-generation sequencing data. In this role you will help to develop technology and design experiments to ensure data is interpretable and actionable. This is a highly collaborative position working closely with our scientific and machine learning teams to enable data based decision making. The Computational Biology group works on challenging but highly focused problems with the potential to impact a wide range of diseases, and as part of this group you will have the opportunity to see your work to directly influence the direction of our research.
