G2D2 is home to Eisai’s Neurology Discovery Data Science Core (NDDSC). Members of the NDDSC have the opportunity to perform foundational data science research that impacts Eisai’s entire neurology discovery portfolio across Eisai’s four worldwide discovery sites in the US, the UK, and Japan. The Head of Human Genetics will be a key leader of the NDDSC team and will have specific responsibilities for genetics strategy and execution. While the focus is expected to be on impacting the discovery process, this position will also serve as the subject matter expert for genetics within neurology, providing expert scientific guidance to impact neurology-related translational science, clinical development, commercial, digital, and investment activities across the company.
The Head of Human Genetics will join an existing (and evolving) data science group at G2D2 and will encounter a corporate culture that is very motivated to apply human genetics and other data-driven approaches to R&D at every level of the organization. Given the expanding scope of the group’s operations, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to build out a small team to achieve this goal.
