SPOTLIGHT ON JOBS

Members of the Brandeis GPS Community may submit job postings from within their industries to advertise exclusively to our community. This is a great way to further connect and seek out opportunities as they come up. If you are interested in posting an opportunity, please complete the following form found here.

Where: Zhao Research Laboratory at the Hospital for Special Surgery and Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, NY

The Zhao Lab is particularly interested in the key inflammatory cytokine TNF-mediated osteoclastogenesis and bone resorption. By comparing with the physiological osteoclastogenic inducer RANKL, the lab has aimed to distinguish and identify novel regulators, for example IRF-8 and RBP-J, that predominantly control pathological bone resorption, thereby providing specific therapeutic targets for clinic with minimal side effects on physiological bone remodeling. The lab employs a combination of molecular and cellular approaches as well as various mouse models, including the inflammatory arthritis model and osteoporosis model for our research. Besides the coding genes, the lab recently challenged a new field- genome wide study of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). By using modern genomic approaches including second-generation deep sequencing and bioinformatics analysis they have successfully identified a few promising novel ncRNAs that were unable to reveal by traditional methods. The lab has opened a pioneering research area studying non-coding genes in osteoclast biology and osteolysis.

Position: Bioinformatician

Position Details: 

Seeking a laboratory technician who is interested in and has expertise in epigenetic and genome-wide studies. The lab uses bone marrow macrophages as osteoclast precursors and study the role of TNF and Notch/RBP-J signaling in their differentiation process. Competitive salary and an excellent benefits package (Medical, Dental, Life insurances and housing supplement) are available and will commensurate with experience and accomplishments.

Requirements:

  • Recent master’s in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or a related field

Where: Pfizer Inc: Cambridge, MA

Position: Several Positions available in Human Genetics and Computational Biomedicine

The advance of human genetics in recent years driven by the large scale human genome-sequencing and genome-wide association in multiple disease areas has brought the research community and pharmaceutical industry an unprecedented opportunity to utilize this information and technology to facilitate innovative drug discovery and development. Pfizer has now reached a key point at which human genetics is sufficiently mature to aid the drug discovery process in several important areas.

Inflammatory and autoimmune diseases and Neuroscience stand out as areas where genetic research has been successful, suggesting that increased emphasis and resource may yield ever more safe and efficacious precision medicines. A combination of genetic epidemiology and functional genomics will facilitate our ability to identify mechanisms, indications, patients and biomarkers, all of which would be guided by an evidence base in humans.

Opportunities also exist to integrate human genetics with other types of data measured in clinical research such as gene expression via RNAseq, protein measurements in peripheral blood, structural and functional brain imaging, and immune cell responses to treatment. This will enable holistic view of biomarker response. Carefully designed and implemented pharmacogenetic studies of drug responses in clinical trials could provide novel mechanistic learnings to support combination therapy or biomarkers for patient stratification.

Pfizer is looking for experts in human genetics with sound knowledge of applying human genetics and genomics as tools for target discovery/validation, biomarker/indication identification, patient stratification through genetic association analyses and functional biology studies.
