Janssen Research & Development, L.L.C., a Johnson & Johnson company, is recruiting a Scientist, Computational Genomics in our Population Analytics group. This position is located at our Spring House, Pennsylvania campus in the United States.
At the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, we are working to build a world without disease. Transforming lives by finding new and better ways to prevent, intercept, treat and cure disease inspires us. We bring together the best minds and pursue the most promising science.
We are Janssen. We collaborate with the world for the health of everyone in it. Learn more at www.janssen.com and follow us @JanssenGlobal. Janssen Research & Development, LLC is part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies.
Janssen Pharma R&D seeks an innovative scientist with expertise in creatively applying quantitative analysis to large-scale population-based studies and real-world data to advance our pharmaceutical and/or biomedical research, drug discovery, and development agenda. Candidates should possess excellent communication skills and broad biological interests that will enable them to effectively interact with laboratory-based scientists in our Therapeutic Areas.
He/she will be a member of the Population Analytics team, which resides in Computational Sciences within the Discovery Sciences organization. The Population Analytics team seeks to bring together researchers within and outside of Janssen with expertise in human disease genetics, statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology, computer/computational science, and high-performance computing. Its mission is to support longitudinal, population-based studies to increase our understanding of pathologies and contribute to Janssen's goals of preventing, intercepting, and treating human diseases. This team is responsible for the integration, analysis and interpretation of data collected on various cohorts and across geographical/time scales. They work on deciphering causal factors such as genes, the environment, and an individual's lifestyle with the aim to facilitate the discovery of novel targets, biomarkers, biological mechanisms and pathways implicated in diseases. The team's goal is to use biomedical data to build a best-in-class target identification and validation engine (TIDVALE) to feed our discovery pipeline. Role & Responsibilities:
Develop or use processes, methods, and software to efficiently process, integrate, and analyze a variety of high-dimensional data, including electronic health record, biosensor/imaging, and multi-omics data from large-scale cohorts and publicly available datasets. Contribute to the development of analytical pipelines to build our TIDVALE.
Contribute to the development and deployment of tools and workflows required to translate genotype/phenotype data from large population-based cohorts and targeted studies to help our researchers identify or validate potential therapeutic targets, pathways, and biomarkers implicated in disease.
Provide scientific expertise on some of the aforementioned areas in collaborations with internal and external partners.
Perform and publish high-quality research that is relevant to the mission of the organization; effectively communicate data and results to our partners within and outside of J&J and work productively with colleagues across J&J sectors.
