Full Time
To date, the collective research on transcription factors has been elusive to drug discovery. Flare Therapeutics, an early-stage biotech, has now reached a moment of light - with the prospect of forever changing the trajectory of how we treat disease. We are trailblazing the path to transcription factors by intervening at a previously hidden region we have identified as the 'switch site.' Join us and help illuminate the path to the possible.

In this role you will:

    • Build the computational biology function & capability by developing and applying, tools, algorithms, and data mining techniques for the integrative analysis of multi ‘omic datasets from internal and external data sources
    • Identify and source external datasets on patient tumor samples, particularly expression profiling and genetics.
    • Apply data visualization and analysis methods to extract knowledge from multi-dimensional genomics data sets and annotations.
    • Collaborate with internal team around experimental design, data analysis, generating, interrogating, and refining biological hypotheses using large-scale genomic data 
    • Regularly present scientific findings to scientific leadership teams 

About you:

    • You have at least 5 years of experience in a bioinformatics/data science role. You may even have experience working in biotech.
    • You have a passion and talent for performing integrated OMIC analysis including RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and ATAC-seq. You might even have experience using cutting edge OMIC capabilities (like single-cell techniques and/or software design)
    • You love science and possibly have a strong biology background
