Verge Genomics is looking for a talented and creative biostatistician to accelerate the discovery of life-changing treatments for patients with neurodegenerative diseases. We need your help developing a world-class statistical pipeline to analyze drug screen data. Verge screens hundreds of small molecules in various pre-clinical model systems that are relevant to neurodegenerative diseases. We are searching for a biostatistician that can ensure the statistical rigor of our study plans, analyze their results for efficacy, and automate the process into our existing computational platform. Overall, you will play a critical role in determining which drugs have a therapeutic effect in our model systems, and which drugs we advance into our development pipeline towards human clinical trials. Verge Genomics is a growing startup, with countless opportunities for your personal and professional development as a scientist and a leader.
Help us revolutionize the way drugs are discovered & developed:
Currently, it takes 12 years and $2.6 billion to get a single drug to market, with the drug discovery and development process costing $1.4 billion. At Verge Genomics, we believe there is a better way: we aim to improve the traditional drug discovery process with approaches based on systems biology, machine learning on human patient data, and drug screening in human cell cultures.
We recently raised $32 million in Series A financing to build a next-generation biopharmaceutical company focused on accelerating development of life-saving treatments for patients with neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, and Alzheimer’s Disease. We are looking for outstanding individuals to join our motivated team. Our employees are our most important assets: we are a team of founders, excited to learn, apply our scientific expertise, and make a real impact.
The startup nature of Verge Genomics provides multiple growth opportunities into other areas of the company. As one of the early employees at Verge, your work will have a direct impact on the foundation of a groundbreaking new drug development model. In addition to competitive compensation and benefits, we offer perks like unlimited vacation/sick days, free lunch, and weekly happy hours.
Verge actively seeks a diverse applicant pool in order to build the strongest possible workforce. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
