NaturalAntibody is seeking a Senior Data Engineer to work on its computational antibody drug discovery product portfolio.
Antibodies are natural proteins of the immune system tasked with identification of noxious molecules for elimination. This extraordinary molecular-recognition capacity of antibodies was harnessed for the purpose of drug discovery, with multiple antibody-based blockbuster drugs on an ever growing market. Antibody-based therapies are typically developed using arduous experimental protocols. Computational approaches now hold the promise of accelerating this drug development and this is the focus of our company.
NaturalAntibody is a company specializing in development of computational methods for antibody-based drug discovery. Our goal is to understand the biology of antibody molecules, their therapeutic context and how such knowledge can be translated to improved antibody therapy design. We pursue this goal by collecting, generating and analysing antibody data, with an end goal of applying our findings to antibody discovery.
As a Senior Data Engineer you will design and work on our data and analytics stacks. You will contribute to our data stack by analysing our existing databases and creating novel datasets. You will employ this data to improve our analytics stack by creation of suitable computational models addressing pertinent needs in antibody-based therapy development. The work will be a combination of software development and research so you should be well suited to tackle open-question challenges in an independent fashion. The work will bring you with a close collaboration with leading experts in the field of drug discovery in the pharmaceutical industry so communication and teamwork skills are very important.
