Vertex is a biotech company, committed to bringing transformative medicines to people with serious and life-threatening diseases. We are growing a Computational Biology group dedicted to Genetic Therapies, such as CRISPR-based therapeutic gene editing. One example therapy we have worked on is CTX001, a CRISPR-based gene editing treatment for Sickle Cell Disease and Beta-Thalassemia, which is currently in clinical trials: https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/11/19/7805102...
We are currently looking for an excellent computational scientist to develop and improve cutting-edge methods and software to answer scientific questions and bring these genetic therapies to patients. A key task for you will be to develop robust computational software tools and systems that will be leveraged for the development of genetic therapies. Experience in analyzing genomics data and developing bioinformatics tools is essential, as are strong software engineering skills.
We offer competitive benefits and compensation, including salary, bonus, and equity. Our office is in the Seaport neighborhood of Boston. You would join a great work environment of motivated, smart, fun, and supportive people.
