10/23/20 Computational Biology Scientist, Cancer Immunology Individual contributor South San Francisco, California

Genentech seeks a talented and highly motivated computational biology / Bioinformatics scientist to pursue reverse translational data-driven projects in close collaboration with our Cancer Immunology and Oncology Biomarker Development Departments.

Recently, exciting developments at Genentech and elsewhere have demonstrated the potential of leveraging the human immune system for effective and durable control of cancer. Our extensive bulk and single-cell RNA-seq characterization of samples from cancer immunotherapy clinical trials provide an outstanding opportunity for rapidly taking clinical insights back into the laboratory.

The primary focus of this position is the identification of signals in single-cell and bulk RNA-seq data that are associated with the variability in human immunotherapy treatment response. This will form the basis to further investigate the mechanistic basis for the clinical observations.

Applicants should be able to work comfortably on an interdisciplinary team, have a strong desire to carry out data analysis and integration across various domains (High-throughput Transcriptomic, Proteomic, Epigenomic data), and apply best-in-class algorithms — or develop new algorithms — that directly address the motivating biological and clinical questions.
