Company Overview

At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes.  We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.

 

In compliance with applicable State regulatory authorities, COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for all MSK staff. Staff are considered fully vaccinated upon completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19 (i.e., one dose of a single dose vaccine or a final dose of a multi-dose vaccine series). Exceptions from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement are permitted for those who request and receive an approved medical or fully remote exemption.  Requests for medical exemption can take up to two weeks to review. Vaccination or an approved medical exemption is required to start work.

 

*Staff working at a MSK New Jersey location must be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, which includes having completed the primary COVID-19 vaccination series and booster once eligible as mandated by New Jersey State. All New Jersey staff not yet eligible for a booster must receive a booster within 3 weeks of becoming eligible as a condition of continued employment at MSK.

 

 

Note: Individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster two months after completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19.  Because vaccine-induced immunity can wane over time, MSK continues to strongly urge all staff to get a COVID-19 booster as soon as they become eligible to maintain their protective immunity for a longer period.

Job Description

We are seeking a creative developer with a strong statistics and machine learning background to join Sloan Kettering Institute’s Single Cell Research Initiative (SCRI). The team’s goal is to develop cutting-edge algorithms to interpret the flood of data emerging from single-cell technologies in order to explore questions in tumor heterogeneity, metastasis and the tumor-immune environment. If you would rather apply your superb programming and analytical skills towards a cancer cure than to finance and shopping carts, our dynamic multi-disciplinary team is the place for you.

 

SCRI is directed by computational biologist Dr. Dana Pe’er, a pioneer with a strong track record of developing new conceptual approaches and widely used tools in the single-cell analysis field. We collect big biological data, primarily from multi-dimensional single-cell technologies such as single-cell RNA sequencing and high-parameter imaging. You will develop and implement algorithms that process, integrate and visualize the multiple data types, allowing data scientists, biologists and clinicians to interact with and interpret the data. A key focus is the single-cell profiling of patient samples, with the goal of improving immunotherapy and precision medicine. Join us if you are an innovative thinker and want to make an impact!

 You Will:

  • Design and develop algorithms and software to process, normalize, organize, visualize and interpret data from multiple modalities, including from single-cell and imaging technologies
  • Design and implement novel machine learning algorithms to integrate genomics data collected from clinical cohorts
  • Implement new features, maintain and test existing SCRI code infrastructure
  • Evaluate and compare best practices for processing and analyzing different data types
  • Provide consultation, guidance and training to research scientists using SCRI tools

You Have:

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree with strong machine learning or stats components, and 3+ years of programming experience; or PhD in math, physics or computer science; or equivalent experience
  • Bioinformatics/genomics experience and familiarity with common concepts, terminologies and software currently used in the field
  • Experience designing large software tools and writing efficient code
  • Proficiency in the testing process; ability to debug and modify code and use Git workflows
  • Analytical, reasoning, mathematical and problem-solving skills to develop algorithms
  • Advanced knowledge of algorithms and statistics
  • Proficiency in Python (including building distributable Python modules)
  • Proficiency working in cloud and HPC environments
