This Early Talent postdoctoral fellowship (2 year) with the Computational Biology Department will support multiple therapy areas on the interactions between the microbiome and various pathogens with human host immunity. The roles of both beneficial and pathogenic microbes on human host pathways are being linked to the occurrences of many chronic and infectious diseases. With the rapid expansion of multiple genomics platforms, there is a significant opportunity for the development and application of new computational approaches to identify novel human gene targets that are modulated by microbial interactions for the treatment of infectious, respiratory, inflammatory and other diseases. The successful candidate for this position will provide computational biology insight and analyses to interdisciplinary teams of drug discovery scientists. A key role will be to develop and lead novel computational biology studies and lead the writing of manuscripts in high level international scientific journals. This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in applying their bioinformatics skills to translational and transformative medicine projects in a large pharmaceutical R&D organization.
