What Does A Computational Biologist Do At Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

* Collaborate with T/TA/AG genetics teams to gather requirements for producing intuitive biologically-relevant subsets (“views”) of high throughput association results emanating from comprehensive genotype-phenotype association studies produced by the analytical genetics team.
* Produce and extend these views of the high throughput association results for general consumption by T/TA/AG genetics team stakeholders for the purposes of drug target identification.
* The ideal candidate will be able to rapidly iterate over versions of these views to suit customer requirements, as well as collaborate with analytical genetics team members to design and execute follow-up analyses.
* Collaboration with GI R
* D and Variant Interpretation teams to leverage in-house annotation resources, distributed computing infrastructure and data representations, and bespoke visualization tools for the purposes of recovering biologically impactful findings from high throughput association analysis results.
* Collaboration with AG high throughput operations team members to access, manipulate, and extract biologically meaningful findings from high throughput association results.
* Communicate and report study findings and analyses with analysis customers, RGC leadership, and collaborators
* This role does NOT include:
* Generating primary genetic association analysis, which will remain the primary responsibility of the AG team; primary emphasis of the high throughput association results mining team is on supporting genotype-phenotype association interpretation in support of downstream translational goals
* Development of tools for displaying data, which will remain the primary responsibility of the GI R
* D team.
* Primary emphasis will be on developing heuristics for filtering and presenting views of high throughput association results that are intuitive and interpretable

* Drives project specific interrogation and data mining of research database to support hypothesis-driven target discovery
* Ensures the data infrastructure and analytics lab meets operational and regulatory requirements associated with the management and interrogation of clinical patient data
* HIPPA compliant data management and sharing
* Must be willing to work flexible hours as necessary, and work beyond 40hrs is likely to be required
* Oversees the development of the required IT and data infrastructure of the lab (including cloud-based data interfaces and relevant databases) and ensures data protection.
* Provides bioinformatics and computational biology support related to the identified goals of the TTMS
* Support of basic data security standards
* Works with and reports to the scientific founders and the TTMS Pre
* Clinical Program Coordinator to investigate the most promising targets within the tumor microenvironment for the development of therapeutics

* Oversee and monitor regulatory compliance for utilization of the data.
* Use system reports and analyses to identify potentially problematic data, make corrections, and eliminate root cause for data problems or justify solutions to be implemented by others.
* Create complex charts and databases, perform statistical analyses, and develop graphs and tables for publication and presentation.
* Serve as a resource for non-routine inquiries such as requests for statistics or surveys.
* Test prototype software and participate in approval and release process for new software.
* Provide documentation based on audit and reporting criteria to investigators and research staff.
* Complies with and supports University and government health & safety regulations & policies.
* Other duties may also be assigned
* Qualifications

How To Become A Computational Biologist

Most jobs for computer and information research scientists require a Ph.D. in computer science or a related field. In the federal government, a bachelor’s degree may be sufficient for some jobs.

Education

Most computer and information research scientists need a Ph.D. in computer science or a related field, such as computer engineering. A Ph.D. usually requires 4 to 5 years of study after earning a bachelor’s degree, typically in a computer-related field, such as computer science or information systems. During their first 2 years in a Ph.D. program, students take a variety of computer science classes. They then choose a specialty and spend the remaining years in the program doing research within that specialty.

Computer scientists who work in a specialized field may need knowledge of that field. For example, those working on biomedical applications may have to take some biology classes.

Advancement

Some computer scientists may become computer and information systems managers.

Important Qualities

Analytical skills. Computer and information research scientists must be organized in their thinking and analyze the results of their research to formulate conclusions.

Communication skills. Computer and information research scientists must communicate well with programmers and managers and be able to clearly explain their conclusions to people with no technical background. They often present their research at conferences.

Critical-thinking skills. Computer and information research scientists work on many complex problems.

Detail oriented. Computer and information research scientists must pay close attention to their work, because a small programming error can cause an entire project to fail.

Ingenuity. Computer and information research scientists must continually come up with innovative ways to solve problems, particularly when their ideas do not initially work as intended.

Logical thinking. Computer algorithms rely on logic. Computer and information research scientists must have a talent for reasoning.

Math skills. Computer and information research scientists must have knowledge of advanced math and other technical topics that are critical in computing.
