Job Description

Apply Now

We are looking for an enthusiastic Bioinformatics Scientist to work in close collaboration with scientists from diverse fields and who can lead independent scientific projects. You will develop and maintain innovative bioinformatics methods and computational pipelines running on high-performance computing platforms that help the Regeneron Genetics Medicines group create next generation therapies using gene editing and gene insertion. Your role will involve working on innovative technologies like Adeno-associated viruses, CRISPR-Cas9, deep mutational scanning, and using machine learning methods to treat of cure disease. Working in the Molecular Profiling and Data Science department will also give you the opportunity to participate in collaborations in many facets of research and development, ranging from machine learning and inference of statistical models for genotype-phenotype assay data through to the assessment of therapeutic antibodies and other biologics that drive Regeneron’s therapeutics.

As a Scientist-Bioinformatics, a typical day might include the following:

  • Develop and maintain bioinformatics pipelines and carry out bioinformatics analysis using languages such as Shell, Python, and R, and use HPC platforms in a Linux/cloud-based environments.

  • Develop machine-learning and statistical frameworks to get insights from large sequencing data sets and work on generative models to optimize and generate novel biological sequences with desired properties.

  • Building tools to characterize gene insertion and analyze NGS data using short and long-read sequencing.

  • Work with other bioinformaticians to enhance existing pipelines, share methodologies, and develop standard processes.

  • Conduct independent computational biology research aligned with the department’s overall goals.

  • Collaborating extensively with wet-lab biologists to design the best experiments and NGS readouts.

This job might be for you if:

  • Want to contribute to the advancement and design of next generation genetic therapies and improve health outcomes.

  • Like working at the interface between computation and experiments.

  • Have a strong computational background and enjoy creating new methods.

  • Like diving deep into data, including analyzing raw NGS reads.

  • Can effectively communicate complex concepts to collaborators from a wide range of backgrounds.

  • Want opportunities to showcase and publish your work.

To be considered for this role, you must have a PhD degree (or master’s degree with 4 years of relevant experience) in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Quantitative Biology, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Physics, or related quantitative fields. You must have experience conducting bioinformatics analysis at either the gene or sequence level, have experience with machine learning methods, and have a strong background (3+ years) in Python and/or R. Strong familiarity in working in a Linux environment, and shell scripting is desirable. Strong familiarity with HPC environments is also high valued. Familiarity with code version control systems such as git and testing code (e.g., unit- and functional-tests) a strong plus. Experience with front-end web application development would be a plus.
