Bioconductors, a bioinformatician position is currently open at Pfizer, Cambridge, UK. An excerpt from the job description is reproduced below (as well as the full job description). You can contact Caroline Benn <caroline.benn at="" pfizer.com=""> or Lee Harland <lee.harland at="" pfizer.com=""> for more details. Alexandre --- Excerpt Job Focus An exciting opportunity has arisen at our Cambridge, UK facility for a skilled bioinformatics scientist to assist in the generation, analysis and interpretation of large-scale molecular profiling data. A key focus of the role initially will be to utilise genomic profiling to construct a comprehensive map of the molecular basis of retinal cell generation. Reporting to the head of bioinformatics, the successful candidate will work closely with our molecular biologists to design and implement transcriptomic and epigenetic experiments. Responsibilities Key responsibilities include: . Provide informatics-support to the design of Pfizer Regenerative Medicine molecular profiling projects. . Creation of data analysis pipelines for the Q/C and normalization of genomic data . Development of algorithms and methodologies for integration of multiple datasets . Identification and/or development of analysis algorithms to analyse high-throughput data . Biological interpretation through Gene Set, Pathways & transcriptional network analysis .Presentation & publication at internal and external meetings/journals. . Be responsible for analyzing large datasets from molecular profiling studies and interpretation of these results within the biological system under investigation . Lead the design & implementation of strategies concerning integration of multiple genomic datasets. . Build a strong relationship with key groups within Pfizer, and form strong, productive collaborations with academic groups and groups in companies outside of Pfizer. Qualifications The successful candidate will have the following attributes: . Recently qualified with a PhD in a relevant scientific discipline or a PhD and experience in a similar role . Interest in stem cell biology and its application to human disease. . Good understanding of the scientific principles of high-throughput genomic data such as microarray, ChIP-Seq and next-generation sequencing.. . Practical experience with primary data analysis such as QC, normalization and statistical modelling through tools such as R/Bioconductor . Knowledge of third-party and public domain software for the analysis of genomic data . Practical experience with the integration of transcriptome, epigenome and micro-RNA data and the interpretation of this data across different domains . Good working knowledge of scripting languages such as Perl and genomic resources such as Ensembl, GEO etc. Experience with pathways and transcription network analysis would be desirable. --- Full job description: Job Title: Bioinformatician: Genomic Profiling Job ID: 932674 Location: United Kingdom-Cambridge Full/Part Time: Full-Time Regular/Temporary: Regular Org Marketing Statement Imagine a career that touches the lives of people everywhere. Imagine an opportunity to reach beyond your area of expertise to make an impact on something greater than the bottom line. Imagine playing a key role in some of the most critical issues facing healthcare today. This is your career at Pfizer - a career unlike any other. Department Marketing Statement Pfizer Regenerative Medicine is a new biotech like research unit, with research facilities in both Cambridge UK and Boston USA. We work at the forefront of science using the latest developments in stem cell biology to bring novel treatments straight to patients to prevent disability, repair failing organs and to treat degenerative diseases. We currently have a number of exciting programmes, including efforts focussing upon neuroregeneration and pancreatic beta cell generation. In addition we have recently announced a pioneering collaboration with Professor Pete Coffey at the Institute for Ophthalmology in London to develop stem cell therapies to treat macular degeneration. As a key step towards clinical trials we are seeking to further understand the biological events in the differentiation of stem cells into therapeutically relevant retinal cell types. For us, this is the start of a new era of medicine - and Pfizer Regenerative Medicine will not only be part of it, but shape it.
