Job Description

The ability to analyze and interrogate the diverse molecules in metabolomic data directly enables the success of Nuanced Health’s mission to change drug discovery. A critical aspect of that is the ability to incorporate analyses from mass-spectrometry based datasets with those from other high-throughput data in order to compile multi-omic results.

As part of the computational team, you will deliver research that directly impacts and supports the growth of the organization through the design, execution and analysis of experiments. You should be excited about analytical solutions that provide actionable insights from biological data. These results will be derived from robust, scalable, and reproducible cloud-based computational workflows that rely on fundamental biological concepts and integrate novel methods in bioinformatics or machine learning where appropriate.

As a Computational Biologist, Metabolomics/Microbiome, you will be primarily responsible for driving scientific progress as it relates to the metabolomic program as part of the larger platform. You would be joining a team of microbiologists, immunologists, researchers and computational scientists and engineers, so an ideal teammate is intentionally curious, highly adaptable, committed to learning, and passionate about innovation, all within a dynamic startup environment.

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Lead experimental design and analysis of metabolomic, proteomic, and lipidomic data from diverse biological samples
  • Design, build and refine the bioinformatics pipelines for mass-spectrometry based metabolomics, proteomics, and lipidomics to support scientific projects
  • Apply established and novel methods to investigate complex biological samples
  • Collaborate closely with teammates across multiple teams to drive multi-omic discovery research
