The Molecular Research Analyst will contribute significantly to research projects initiated either internally or by collaborators by providing accurate data extraction, compilation and data analysis in a timely fashion.
The MRA will utilize the knowledge of molecular oncology and biotechnologies including NextGen sequencing, immunohistochemistry and in-situ hybridization to select the most appropriate statistical tool and to contribute on study design, planning and data interpretation.
The MRA will be responsible to ensure the progress and the quality of the assignment, by either performing the analysis independently or by working closely with the lead scientist on the assigned projects.
The MRA will ensure efficient communications with the medical affairs team and the collaborators via scientific discussions to increase the quality and strength of the study.
The MRA will summarize the finding and results of the assigned projects in various formats, including but not limited to tables and/or graphics, and contribute to conference abstracts, posters, presentation slides and/or manuscripts.
The MRA will work closely with the molecular team, clinical programs professionals and statisticians as needed.
PhD in a biological science related to cancer biology (preferred), biochemistry, or molecular and cellular biology or equivalent training and experience required.
Knowledge in cancer biology of solid tumors preferred, understanding of molecular genetics and biotechnologies including NextGen sequencing, immunohistochemistry and in-situ hybridization strongly preferred
Excellent written and oral communication skills required.
Proved attention to details, well-organized; proved ability to prioritize multiple projects and to meet strict deadlines.
