The Department of Translational Genome Sciences in Translational Biology (Research & Early Development) is responsible for applying human genetic & genomic discoveries to support Biogen’s drug discovery research teams and clinical development programs.
We seek to discover transformative medicines for patients with neurodegenerative disease by leveraging new understanding of human disease biology, genetics, and cutting-edge technologies allowing deeper analysis of pathogenic mechanisms. Pushing back the frontier of neurological disease therapeutics lies at the center of Biogen’s mission.
The RNA Biology and Functional Genomics group, within Translational Genome Sciences, is seeking a highly skilled and motivated scientist to join a dynamic team dedicated to understanding the molecular basis of and developing novel therapeutics for neurological disorders.
The candidate will work independently and with other experimentalists, computational biologists, and statistical geneticists to further our understanding of how genetic variation and RNA metabolism impact disease and to define novel therapeutic hypotheses. This is primarily a laboratory based position for a scientist with strong molecular and cellular biology skills and deep understanding of RNA biology to study the effects of genetic variants on the transcriptome and proteome. The key elements for success are deep technical expertise, a passion for doing science, and ability to communicate effectively with molecular and computational scientists.
