At Genospace, our mission is to deliver the platform that makes biomedical data useful and usable by everyone.
Working from our headquarters in Cambridge, MA, our interdisciplinary team is merging the tools and techniques of genomics, healthcare, analytics, and cloud computing. We serve research, clinical development, pathology and clinical care customers who work with high-dimensional genomic and other biomedical data. Many of the most advanced precision medicine organizations are powered by Genospace.
Genospace is looking for talented team players who enjoy a challenge and want to help us deliver our platform. As the leading provider of information technology services in molecular medicine, our software is used today by clinicians and researchers across the country and around the globe to improve patient care.
What You’ll Do:
The Curation Scientist is responsible for the detailed curation of clinical trial protocols to support Genospace Trial Match. Genospace Trial Match matches patient data from electronic medical records and molecular testing reports to curated clinical trials to identify opportunities for patient enrollment, thereby promoting patient access to innovative therapies and therapeutic approaches.
Responsibilities include the careful review and translation of clinical trial protocols into a highly structured format in Clarify, a Genospace curation tool that builds the Genospace knowledge base. This role requires the integration of scientific and clinical knowledge in a complex manner. This is a dynamic position that demands critical thinking, high attention to detail, and the ability to work independently as well as in a team environment.
As a Curation Scientist you will:
- Review clinical trial protocols and identify key elements of the trial that will be included in descriptive summaries of certain elements of the trial
- Use ontologies and terminologies to translate inclusion and exclusion criteria of clinical trial protocols into complex rules
- Use online resources to identify relevant medical codes and targeted therapies and review the literature to research certain types of genomic alteration
- Collaborate with a team of individuals with diverse backgrounds, including genomics researchers, oncologists, and software engineers, to develop evolving curation standards and to further optimize the capture of clinical trial protocols
What We’re Looking For:
- Excellent knowledge of molecular biology, genetics, genomics, and biomedical research, including genomic technologies and experimental methods used for molecular analysis
- Extensive knowledge of key biological signaling pathways and processes of cancer biology, especially those influencing response of targeted agents
- Detailed knowledge of ontologies relevant to clinical and molecular data
- Familiarity with medical terminology and ICD-10 diagnosis codes as well as FDA-approved therapies and clinical practice guidelines
- Excellent attention to detail in analyzing scientific and medical information
- Self-motivated with strong organizational and analytical skills
- Strong communication and interpersonal skills and demonstrated ability to work independently as well as a member of multidisciplinary teams
Education & Background:
- PhD in a biological science or other relevant field, including fields related to medicine or genetics or genomics, exceptional candidates with Master’s degrees will be considered
- At least 2 years’ experience working in biomedical research, biomedical informatics, precision medicine, or related field
