The Position

The Data Management Vision (DMV) is a multi-functional effort in order to advance our data management structure + technologies.  In the next five years, we will seamlessly connect our information, our strategic asset, empowering us to work efficiently, make new discoveries, and quickly bring quality medicines to our patients.  The automated reporting effort is one facet of the DMV; automated reporting will significantly reduce the resources needed to generate the various reports (technical reports, regulatory filings, etc.) in support of the development efforts in pipeline projects.  This will be achieved by automating data transcription, data transformation/calculations, and automating the report generation process itself for various reports originating in several different functional areas.  

This effort is originating in the Early Stage Cell Culture (ESCC) department; ESCC is responsible for generating cell lines (mammalian and E. coli) capable of producing the product of interest, as well as developing robust cell culture (or fermentation) processes for production in manufacturing scale bioreactors in support of toxicological and early clinical trials.

The automated reporting effort is one facet of the DMV, with the end goal of automating the many routine reports (Word documents, PDF files, PowerPoint files, etc.) that are required in support of pipeline projects.  

The Intern will help develop various automated report functions.  This can be coding the report itself, setting up the various data connections with relevant databases, and/or mapping out the source data to where it is needed in the final report.  The Intern will also help by working to standardize the various data inputs (sources) and standardize the various report outputs.  The automated report portal is a web based solution, so the Intern may also help develop the web portal that serves as the gateway for all of the reporting scripts.

As this project involves interaction with many functional areas, the Intern will get exposure to those other functional areas and learn about the overall development process at Genentech.

Who You Are

This project is heavily focused on data management and programming; the candidate must have a Bachelor's or Master's degree and a background in computer science.  The Intern will need to be able to develop scripts in the R programming language, and preferably be able to develop scripts in R Shiny as well.  A knowledge of RESTful APIs is desired for data connectivity.  The Intern will interact with multiple functional areas, so the ability to communicate effectively is highly desired.  

The ideal candidate will have a background in chemical engineering (in order to understand the development work) and computer science (in order to develop scripts for automation).
