Job Title: Senior Computational Biologist

About Us:

Entact Bio is a preclinical stage biotechnology company developing a new class of drugs that enhance the function of beneficial proteins. Launched by a founding team deeply rooted in deubiquitinase (DUB) biochemistry, chemical biology, disease biology, and small-molecule drug development, Entact has designed its proprietary Encompass™ platform to create enhancement-targeting chimeric (ENTAC™) medicines. ENTACs harness the ability of DUBs to regulate proteins. By leveraging this natural cellular mechanism to enhance protein function, Entact is expanding the universe of treatable diseases. 

Responsibilities:

  • Lead the methodological development and implementation of Entact Bio’s in silico drug discovery platform
  • Inform target/DUB selection and prioritization with testable hypotheses by identifying, curating, and analyzing large-scale omics datasets/databases with existing or new computational approaches
  • Collaboratively support internal mass spectrometry-based proteomics, including the design, prototyping, and implementation of computational pipelines for MS-based assays
  • Actively contribute to research efforts with project-based support and collaboratively proposing and designing experiments with other scientists
  • Maintain frequent and clear communication across internal and external team members, providing timely and interpretable analysis results to the scientific team and management
  • Maintain up-to-date awareness of emerging computational biology methods and applications

Who You Are:

  • Highly versatile and motivated computational biologist:A scientist with strong foundational knowledge and skillset with the willingness to expand into new and dynamic areas of science
  • Openly collaborative and communicative: An outward facing scientist and teammate who thrives in a scientifically diverse, fast-paced, team-oriented, start-up environment and is comfortable interfacing across disciplines
  • Growth mindset: An individual that is continually learning and willing to adapt and succeed in a dynamic environment
  • Highly organized: Strong time management and planning skills

Qualifications:

  • PhD or Master's degree in computational biology, bioinformatics or other related discipline with one or more years of experience applying quantitative approaches towards biological applications.
  • Experience developing methods for processing and analyzing high-throughput omics data
  • Experience in development of computational methods for processing and extracting biological data from mass-spectrometry-based proteomics datasets
    • Familiarity with current state of the art methods for mass-spectrometry based proteomics data analyses and methodologies (e.g. TMT and Label free) and their underlying statistical principles
  • Experience in delivering testable hypotheses and insights from complex high-dimensional biological data
  • Strong knowledge of applied statistics and machine learning, experience with generative models a plus
  • Strong scientific programming skills in Python or R, and experience with cloud computing platforms (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure)
  • Demonstrated ability to lead cross-functional projects, collaborate with other scientists and effectively communicate scientific challenges, solutions and results
  • Demonstrated ability to work as a team player in a dynamic, fast-paced environment focused on deliverables
  • Exceptional communication skills as demonstrated by notable publications and presentations
  • Continuously seeking education with an ability to quickly adapt to new information
