Eisai Inc.
Andover, MA, United States


Company Description:

~~Eisai Inc. has recently launched a new, autonomous and dedicated R&D innovation unit of over 80 scientists focused on integrating our diverse scientific strengths to deliver novel targeted medicines, discovered and robustly validated by human genetics and related sources, to patients. This Andover, MA, unit is premised upon three strategic pillars (human biology, chemistry innovation and entrepreneurial collaboration) and is organized around five scientific engines (Human Biology and Data Sciences; Integrated Biology; Integrated Chemistry; Imaging Center of Excellence; Target Modulation). The predominant research focus of the new unit is precision medicine therapeutics for the subset of dementia and oncology patients with immune-driven pathology (i.e., immunodementia and immunooncology), with a sharp strategic focus on employing entrepreneurial, collaborative, and business models to accelerate delivery of innovative medicines that address unmet patient needs.

Job Summary

The Data Scientist is responsible for accessing, analyzing, and interpreting genetic and functional data to inform the AiM Institute’s preclinical drug discovery research program. He/she leverages deep biological knowledge of and experience in the fields of neurology and/or immunology to design and execute analyses tailored to answer biologists’ key scientific questions. The Scientist is also responsible for designing and maintaining analysis pipelines (e.g., RNAseq and NGS) and accessing and managing large human biology datasets. Specific responsibilities include contribution to experimental design, analysis of preclinical experiments, data quality control, reporting of results, and biological interpretation of findings. In addition, the Data Scientist provides and implements recommendations of novel or existing technologies and analytic methods to improve experimental design and inform decision making. He/she also identifies externally available datasets that can be internalized to inform drug discovery and development efforts, coordinates access to those datasets, and manages their use at Eisai. To facilitate interactions between data scientists, informaticians, and biologists, the Data Scientist will occasionally serve as a “translator” across disciplines to ensure that team members are all able to understand and answer key questions. Data Scientist will collaborate with Informatics and IT colleagues to help Biology colleagues manage laboratory experimental data for drug development projects in neurology. Clear communication and data visualization skills will be critical for this position.

The Human Biology & Data Science Engine emphasizes a cross-disciplinary approach using internal and external resources to advance understanding of drug targets from robust human biology based evidence. Our research team is committed to supporting professional development.
