What You will Be Doing:
As a (Senior) Research Scientist of Statistical Genetics, you will be responsible for analyzing large-scale human genetic data-sets (e.g., whole genome sequencing, whole exome sequencing, array genotyping) to identify potential genetic targets for oligonucleotide therapeutics. You will lead these efforts by utilizing variant effect predictors on the genomic data, and refining or developing statistical techniques to nominate candidate genes. You will collaborate with machine learning scientists for the development and improvement of variant effect prediction models. You will work closely with the statistical genetics and bioinformatics teams, and interface regularly with the target biology team.
