Celgene is a global biopharmaceutical company leading the way in medical innovation to help patients live longer, better lives. Our purpose as a company is to discover and develop therapies that will change the course of human health. We value our passion for patients, quest for innovation, spirit of independence and love of challenge. With a presence in more than 70 countries, and growing - we look for talented people to grow our business, advance our science and contribute to our unique culture.
We seek a talented, collaborative inter-disciplinary scientist to lead innovative application of next-generation sequencing (NGS) methods in close collaboration with Celgene colleagues and strategic research & development partners.
This individual will play a key scientific role in the development of internal sequencing resources and the optimization of Celgene NGS assays with focus on novel protocols to elucidate disease and therapeutic mechanisms during the early stages of drug discovery.
The role presents an exciting opportunity to build a scientific team that partners and collaborates with laboratory and analytical research colleagues to drive new experimental and data capture strategies, alongside assessment and selection of external NGS groups to procure well-established assays at scale.
Key collaborators and stakeholders include researchers in our thematic centers of excellence (TCoEs) and colleagues in the Research Informatics and Knowledge Utilization (RIKU) department, engaged in work towards key objectives for Celgene Research and Early Development (R&ED). Scientific focus is on development of novel therapies for patients with diseases of unmet need in cancer, autoimmune and neurological indications.
As part of the RIKU organization, an additional component of the role will be to partner with bioinformatics and data science colleagues to align data generation with computational infrastructure, and novel experimental methods with innovative analysis and data integration strategies that enable full leverage of NGS output towards research across the R&ED organization and beyond.
The position would suit an individual with demonstrated scientific leadership experience and excellent communication and collaboration skills. Keen interest in inter-disciplinary application of high-throughput molecular profiling methods to life sciences data is imperative. Applications are encouraged from those looking to impact delivery of truly innovative and life-changing therapies for complex diseases of unmet medical need.
