A key aspect of the project will be integrating disparate public data sources relevant to both genetics (e.g. GEO, GTEX) and therapeutics (e.g. CMAP, LINCS, PubChem, DrugBank, SIDER) to allow for rich annotation of therapeutic candidates. Equally important, however, will be the design and implementation of intuitive and responsive web-based analytics tools that will enable researchers (and potentially clinicians) to easily submit data and rapidly receive interpretable results.
The successful candidate will have demonstrated aptitude in quantitative biology (or relevant fields), proficiency in web and scientific programming, and experience with successful self-directed research projects. He or she will be expected to build functional prototypes given minimal specification and then work with colleagues to make iterative improvements over time.
