  • 11/26/15--00:52: Sr Oncology Biomarker Sci
  • The comprehensive analysis of cancer genomes is nearly complete, but major barriers exist in converting this information into patient benefit. Now, a critical goal in cancer research is to predict essential genes/proteins across a diversity of tumor subtypes. Such a capability would allow for the elucidation of the molecular targets against which therapeutics should be developed, and the identification of specific patient populations likely to respond to such targeted interventions.

    We are launching a new initiative to screen small-molecules at an unprecedented scale in cancer models spanning the genetic diversity of human cancer, in order to identify compounds with genotype-specific patterns of killing. This initiative will generate an array of small molecule efficacy data across hundreds of genomically distinct cancer cell lines. It is anticipated that hundreds to thousands of potential hits will be uncovered over the course of this project. We are looking for a talented cancer biology expert to lead an effort to prioritize therapeutic leads based on pathway relevance to cancer, predictive biomarkers of sensitivity, and relative position in the clinical and pre-clinical drug landscape.

    The ideal candidate would have a demonstrated expertise in oncology signaling pathways, preferably with early drug development experience and experience corroborating empirical data with multiple databases to uncover interesting compound effect/cell signaling pathway connections. He/she would deliver synergized hypotheses based on evaluation of these multiple data sources to develop a biological prioritization of compounds for follow up work.

    This position would also have support from the computational chemistry team to help further refine priority lists with cheminformatic information and ease of synthetic optimization opinions. This position will be directly responsible for assisting project leadership evaluate and nominate top compound candidates and will have a direct impact on influencing subsequent drug development efforts at the Broad Institute. The Broad Institute provides a vibrant research environment with close links to top academic institutions across the Boston area and provides the potential for your contributions to be used and recognized worldwide.

    CHARACTERISTIC DUTIES
    Evaluate and prioritize oncology-related biomarkers of sensitivity of novel small molecule compounds for promising pathways of interest in oncology therapeutics space. Recommend selection of hit candidates for downstream validation and biological follow up including experimental design. Engage with the Broad Cancer Program subject matter experts to refine areas of particular interest and promise within the oncology therapeutic space. Correlate empirical screening data with pre-clinical and clinical databases including TCGA, CTD2, LINCS, Metacore, Cortellis, Integrity as examples. Assist Data Science team to develop a standardized analysis approach for basic high volume prioritization along with more focused manual review efforts on high value compounds.

    QUALIFICATIONS
    A MD or PhD in a biological discipline with demonstrated expertise in cancer biology with 3+ years experience in a pre-clinical drug discovery environment. In-depth knowledge of the underlying etiology and pathophysiology of various diseases within Oncology or Hematology area as well as familiarity with both current treatments and novel drug targets is required. Has a strong industry insight and strong secondary research skills especially scientific literature, patent searches, and previous experience and comfort level with pre-clinical and clinical database mining and analysis. Experience analyzing and evaluating genomics data sets with a proficiency in statistical analysis is a bonus. Proficiency with modern programming language such as R or Matlab, or a desire to learn is a bonus. Strong communication skills and ability to present findings to all staff levels.
