He/she will also have responsibility for establishing and maintaining analysis pipelines geared toward the identification of disease signature genes, proteins and pathways from experimental system response profiles. He/she will have the opportunity to apply and when necessary develop methods for systems wide analysis of data from various mass-spectrometry experiments, as well as design biological experiments using proteomics techniques.
Specifically, you will:
• Establish innovative computational analysis for identification of deregulated pathways in various disease states.
• Provide analysis of large scale systems toxicology data (genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics).
• Apply machine learning and statistical algorithms to study time series expression experiments and to combine high throughput biological data sources to model biological disease networks.
• Function as a member of a multidisciplinary team which executes scientifically and technically challenging projects.
• Have a strong interest in collaborating with experimentalists to elucidate biological mechanisms
QUALIFICATIONS
• PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology, mathematics or related field
• Academic or industrial experience in bioinformatics with focus on integrated analysis of biological systems (gene/protein expression data, array CGH, M
• You are skilled in the application of computational biology tools and techniques with focus on novel algorithms for integrative omics analysis in cancer research
• You have demonstrated ability to manage and interpret large biological data sets
• Good programming skills in Perl, C/C++,or Java , you have also solid expertise in R/Bioconductor, or Matlab
• You are a great team player with an excellent communication skills
• Fluency in English is a must
WHAT WE OFFER
You will be part of the PMI Research & Development Department, whose primary mission is to research and develop new products which may have the potential to reduce the risks of smoking related diseases.
