Data Scientist - Drug Design & Augmented Intelligence
Key words : medicinal chemistry, biology, biosignatures, data sciences, drug discovery, augmented intelligence, imaging
Within the Discovery Technology and Molecular Pharmacology (DTMP) within Discovery Sciences (DS) group, we provide sophisticated technology support to drug discovery projects in Janssen, the High Dimensional Biology Drug Discovery Sciences (HDBDDS) department is responsible for comprehensive analyses of high-dimensional datasets and MultiTask and DeepLearning machine learning applied to small molecule programs.
The position will be opened on the Beerse campus, which is the flagship R&D center for small molecules within Janssen, investing over 1 billion euros each year in R&D.
Activities cover the integration of information from the broadest possible spectrum of data sources (chemical structure, microscopy images and omics, ) to accurately infer biological activities of millions of chemical compounds, and to apply these predictions to advise projects.
Janssen is looking for a candidate with a track record in DeepLearning and chemical synthesis lab experience to reflect and discuss a medicinal chemistry test and design cycle in discussion with medicinal chemists colleagues.
The aim is to support this by an augmenting disease area insights and data analytics. The usage of biosignatures, chemistry data, as other data insights will be used for suggesting novel compounds to make.
Our mission is to make diversity & inclusion our way of doing business. We will advance our culture of belonging where open hearts and minds combine to unleash the potential of the brilliant mix of people, in every corner of Johnson & Johnson.
In the context of the latter task, the department is opening a position for a full time data science and machine learning position for biosignature molecule design.
The goal will be to focus on the creation and application of deep learning approaches to advise medical chemistry projects, also by using high-dimensional imaging data (biosignatures)! The full time position will do world-class research on biosignatures and molecule designs.
This will enable hit expansions and phenocopy strategies (replace antibody biosignature response by a small molecule biosignature response).
This will also include the incorporation of high-dimensional datasets to identify interventional strategies for neurological, cardiovascular and metabolic, infectious, immunological or oncological diseases.
The candidate will be responsible for
