About Omega Therapeutics:
Omega Therapeutics is a Clinical-stage biotechnology company pioneering the first systematic approach to use mRNA therapeutics as a new class of programmable epigenetic medicines by leveraging its OMEGA Epigenomic Programming--- platform. The OMEGA--- platform harnesses the power of epigenetics, the mechanism that controls gene expression and every aspect of an organism's life from cell genesis, growth and differentiation to cell death. Using a suite of technologies, paired with Omega's process of systemic, rational and integrative drug design, the OMEGA platform enables control of fundamental epigenetic processes to correct the root cause of disease by returning aberrant gene expression to a normal range without altering native nucleic acid sequences. Omega's engineered, modular, and programmable mRNA-encoded epigenetic medicines, Omega Epigenomic Controllers---, target specific intervention points amongst the thousands of mapped and validated proprietary and novel DNA-sequence-based epigenomic loci, EpiZips--- to durably tune single or multiple genes to treat and cure disease through Precision Genomic Control---. Omega is currently advancing a broad pipeline of development candidates spanning a range of disease areas, including oncology, regenerative medicine, multigenic diseases including immunology, and select monogenic diseases.
About the Role:
Omega Therapeutics, Inc. is seeking a Director of Data Science to lead Omega's computational biology, machine learning, and scientific data platform efforts across the R&D organization. Working within a highly integrated Genomics, Data Science, and Therapeutics Discovery department, the successful candidate will champion quantitative assessment and interpretation of non-clinical data (Platform, Discovery, Translational, TechOps, etc.), lead novel algorithmic platform growth, and contribute to experimental designs for program and platform data generation. Essential skills include excellent communication across diverse biological/technical backgrounds, an expertise in functional genomics data analysis and novel ML model development, and the ability to drive hypothesis-driven research goals through multidimensional omics datasets. We are looking for an enthusiastic, detail oriented and highly motivated individual with a passion for bringing novel medicines to patients and is comfortable working in a fast-paced scientific team.
