Senior Bioinformatics Scientist, Proteomics

The Position

The Microchemistry, Proteomics, Lipidomic (MPL) and Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Department is seeking an experienced Scientist/Senior Scientist with a record of high impact research involving the development and application of novel bioinformatic or machine learning algorithms for proteomics to join the group. The new hire will have the opportunity to develop an independent research program and work collaboratively to develop groundbreaking tools and algorithms essential to the high-throughput analysis of cutting-edge proteomics techniques, including single cell proteomics, and apply them to biological questions essential to Genentech’s drug discovery efforts.

Advances in mass spectrometry proteomics and associated areas have revolutionized the study of cellular proteins and motivated in depth molecular characterization of normal human physiology and disease biology. The MPL group is a world leader in the application of technologies, including mass spectrometry and plate-based proteomic methods, to elucidate new models of the molecular mechanisms of disease and the development of novel therapeutics. The successful candidate will lead efforts to create the algorithms essential to transform data generated by new proteomic technologies into actionable biological results. As is true across Genentech, research in MPL is fast paced and highly collaborative, drawing on the expertise of some of the world's leading experts in biochemistry, technology, computational biology and disease.

WHO YOU ARE?

• We are looking for a computational leader with rich, demonstrated experience at the intersection of algorithm development and complex biological problems.

• This position requires a PhD in the computer sciences, Bioinformatics, or a scientific field of study such as Biology, Chemistry, or Biochemistry.

• A high priority will be placed on demonstrated experience in the application of machine learning approaches, including deep learning, to biological data.

• Experience with data generated from analytical instrumentation such as mass spectrometers and/or prior proteomics experience is highly desired.

• A working knowledge of both Python and R, with a mastery of either or both languages, is required.

• Familiarity with modern software engineering best practices is a must, as is the ability to make project decisions independently.

• Strong communication & interpersonal skills are essential for success in this collaborative role.
