Superb communication and interpersonal skills. Phenomenal teammate contributing to a positive, collaborative working environment.
Extended work hours may be required to meet business demands.
Master’s or PhD in Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Data Science, Biostatistics, Biology or related field.
Experience processing biomarker data such as high-content flow cytometry, high-throughput or targeted gene expression assays (e.g. Nanostring, RNA-Seq), or other specialty lab data (e.g., immunoassays, IHC, SNP genotyping, qPCR)
Experience with genomic data and / or public databases (e.g. TCGA, dbGaP). Relational databases such as MySQL and with source code management systems such as git.
Precision for Medicine supports life sciences companies in the use of biomarkers essential to targeting patient treatments more precisely and effectively. Precision applies novel biomarker approaches to clinical research that take advantage of the latest advancements in science and technology, focusing predominantly on genomics, immune-response assays, global specimen logistics, biomarker analytics, companion diagnostics, and clinical trial execution. Precision for Medicine is part of Precision Medicine Group, with nearly 2,000 employees in 34 locations in the US, Canada, and Europe.
We believe that the era of one-size-fits-all medication is giving way to a next generation of treatments, medicines that will be more effective because they are prescribed according to the unique biology of an individual patient. Our mission is to help innovative biotech and pharmaceutical companies accelerate the development of these life-changing treatments. Precision does this by developing assays that utilize biomarkers to help identify the right patient for the right drug. We also handle every aspect of clinical trials from initial strategy and design to selecting sites and managing trial data.
