Data Scientist
Deserve
About the Role:
Deserve is currently releasing and developing novel credit products and services that require new data modeling, data analysis, documentation, review and presentation across groups and clients.

In this role, your initial primary responsibility will be to support the data science team with existing python, R libraries as well as redshift and postgres databases in a technical capacity. However, as you gain experience (or if you already have it) you will help us in capturing new data (investigating possible new data sources), building models, testing models, documenting models, confirming
adherence to government rules and compliance as well as presenting, teaching and showing how said models, data and processes work across the company and clients. The initial communication required will be with PhD level data scientist or experts that have similar experience.
Eventually though, the communication will expand to include individuals that do not possess a technical background.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Pre-Therapeutic Target Discovery R&D
Regeneron Pharmaceuticals
We are seeking an individual to join the Pre-Therapeutic Target Discovery (PTTD) group at Regeneron, to investigate the genetic and molecular mechanisms that 1) transcriptionally control of genes specific to vascular endothelial cells, 2) confer endothelial-cell identity and diversity (e.g. arterial, venous, organotypic), and 3) underlie vascular disease when dysregulated. Within this research, emphasis will be placed on strategies that genetically profile and target endothelial cell subtypes in vivo. These approaches include the generation of transgenic reporter and TRAP-seq alleles, next generation sequencing of RNA and translating RNA, and CRISPR-Cas9-mediated genome editing.

In this role, a typical day might include the following:

Develop and validate in cell-based systems for evaluating transcriptional regulatory elements that govern endothelial-specific gene expression

Engineer and validate transgenic and allele-targeted mouse lines for the in vivo characterization of genomic sequences required for endothelial-specificity

Generate TRAP-seq alleles for the study translating mRNAs in subtypes of endothelial cell populations (e.g. cardiac, arterial, capillary, tumor)

This job might be for you if:
You possess knowledge of methods for the study of mouse embryonic development – microdissection, whole-mount imaging techniques, immunohistochemical and in situ mRNA detection methods in whole-mount and histological preparations

Molecular biology / biochemistry: cloning, PCR, RNA/DNA purification, protein analysis techniques (western blotting, ELISA)

You have knowledge and analytical interpretation of RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, scRNA-seq
