Moderna is hiring a statistical genomics co-op in 2022 to work on single-cell genomics applications for immunology research (masters or PhD with experiences in single-cell omics data analysis, method development).
Moderna is seeking a talented and highly motivated master-level student to benchmark and implement single-cell computational methods. You will learn about current single-cell applications for immunology research and mRNA therapeutics. Candidates pursing a master's degree or PhD with experiences in R/Bioconductor and cloud computing are encouraged to apply.
Here’s What You’ll Do
- Review and benchmark computational methods and tools for multimodal data integration, cell-cell communication modeling, cell type assignment, etc.
- Formulate biological hypotheses using internal data and design experiments to address them
- Collaborate with immunologists to carry out single-cell multiomics data analysis
- Present results to cross-functional teams of computational and experimental scientists on a regular basis and at the end of the co-op
