Company Healthcare R&D Data Sciences seeks biological data engineering support for data analysis activities, to build our FAIR data environment, and to streamline our data handling.  Omics Data Engineering will play a pioneering role in establishing this new group and a leading role in building tools and setting standards for biological data.  Our Data Engineers will work in Company's X-Omics Platform, which won the 2022 BioIT Innovative Practices Award.

‘Omics Data Engineers will work on clinical and pre-clinical datasets but their focus is biological data types (e.g., DNA sequencing, proteomics, gene expression, collectively “omics data”).  While the group will be responsible for routine data engineering tasks, its success will be measured by the extent to which activities can be automated, problems anticipated, and attention focused on our data strategy.  Data engineers will collaborate daily with scientists at Company's other R&D hubs and across departments.  Ideal candidates will have a background with biological data, perhaps through bioinformatics or data management experience.

      • building tools to automate data transfers and QC
      • working with other Data Sciences functions on an R&D-wide data catalog
      • developing and implementing standards for data formats, processing, and documentation
      • training internal users on data standards, data formats, and data assets
      • running pipelines for raw data analysis
      • arranging and managing data transfers with CROs and data providers

      • attention to detail and ability to lead work with multiple parties (analyst, data type subject matter expert, external lab, etc.) to accomplish data transfers efficiently
      • experience with R and Python programming, as well as other tools/technologies such as RShiny and SQL
      • experience with Linux command line, shell scripting, and AWS S3
