Pfizer’s Rare Disease Research Unit (RDRU) is dedicated to the development of novel therapeutics for orphan diseases. The recent and rapid emergence of large databases of genotype/phenotype data has led to many new and exciting opportunities for human genetics to advance rare disease drug development projects. The RDRU Integrative Biology team is searching for a computational geneticist with a deep passion for extending our understanding of the genetics of rare disease and translating these insights into novel therapeutics. As a member of our Integrative Biology team located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, you will be responsible for designing and delivering analyses that incorporate both proprietary and public genetics and other ‘omics datasets for target discovery and target validation. You will work with laboratory biologists, computational biologists, geneticists, and statisticians within the RDRU and across the broader Pfizer community in a highly collaborative environment to deliver impactful and actionable insights from human genetics. A successful candidate will also be comfortable working with external collaborators from industry and academia to advance our understanding of the genetics of rare disease.

Pfizer reports payments and other transfers of value to health care providers as required by federal and state transparency laws and implementing regulations. These laws and regulations require Pfizer to provide government agencies with information such as a health care provider’s name, address and the type of payments or other value received, generally for public disclosure. Subject to further legal review and statutory or regulatory clarification, which Pfizer intends to pursue, reimbursement of recruiting expenses for licensed physicians may constitute a reportable transfer of value under the federal transparency law commonly known as the Sunshine Act. Therefore, if you are a licensed physician who incurs recruiting expenses as a result of interviewing with Pfizer that we pay or reimburse, your name, address and the amount of payments made currently will be reported to the government. If you have questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your Talent Acquisition representative.
