Celgene Postdoc Fellow, Research Analytics / Bioinformatics in Summit, New Jersey


Celgene is a global biopharmaceutical company leading the way in medical innovation to help patients live longer, better lives. Our purpose as a company is to discover and develop therapies that will change the course of human health. We value our passion for patients, quest for innovation, spirit of independence and love of challenge. With a presence in more than 70 countries - and growing - we look for talented people to grow our business, advance our science and contribute to our unique culture.


We are seeking an independent scientist to integrate large-scale patient-derived molecular profiling datasets with clinical and biological data, to identify sub-types in key cancer indications and assess the association of new therapies with those sub-types. Research will center on compound positioning via the integration of extensive publicly-available cancer profiling datasets and biological information (including pathways and PPI networks) with internally-generated pre-clinical and clinical profiling data.

This position is intended to allow an experienced computational researcher the freedom to integrate public resources with the pre-clinical and translational inside-knowledge (including compound MOAs and synergies), and an opportunity to leverage the mentorship and expertise of a well-resourced research environment while exploring industry as a potential career prospect.

The individual selected will benefit from regular interactions with cancer biology and computational biology research teams, including a strong group of machine learning, patient stratification and pre-clinical studies experts. Publications are highly encouraged. Mentorship and experimental (lab) support will be readily available through various Celgene functions/teams.

The possibility exists for the position to be located either in Summit NJ (USA) or Seville (Spain).



  • PhD in computer science, physics, math, statistics or engineering

Skills/Knowledge Required:

  • Demonstrated experience in patient stratification and machine learning is required.

  • Demonstrated experience in data integration is required (continuous, categorical and relational)

  • Competent programmer fluent in Unix/Linux, Perl or Python, and R or Matlab or equivalent is required

  • Working knowledge and understanding of molecular and cell biology preferred

  • Deep understanding of molecular profiling and associated platforms preferred

  • Strong interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills in the English language

  • Previous experience in cancer biology is a plus
