At AbbVie the Genomics Research Center (GRC) is a center of
excellence for genetics and genomics that supports both Discovery
and Development. Within the GRC, the Department of
Bioinformatics/Computational Biology is responsible for data
analysis and provides analytical insights for both internal and
external data. AbbVie's Neuroscience Discovery advances research to
identify novel therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative
disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Computational
Biologist/Bioinformatician, based in Cambridge, MA embedded in
Neuroscience Discovery. The successful candidate will work closely
with bioinformatics and wet-lab groups in Cambridge (MA),
Ludwigshafen (Germany) and North Chicago (IL) to contribute to
target and biomarker identification, validation, and project
advancement by OMICS data analysis.
* Develop strategies for and perform integrated analysis of high
dimensional OMICS data, with a special focus on mass spec
proteomics data analysis and its integration with transcriptomics.
* Support early stage drug discovery for neurological diseases
especially Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease by analysis
of data from consortia, preclinical models, and clinical studies. *
Evaluation, development and implementation of computational
methods, pipelines and tools for data analysis and visualization. *
Work in close collaboration with disease biology experts,
statisticians and bioinformaticians within AbbVie. Objectives,
strategies, and results are discussed in interdisciplinary

of academic or industry experience. * 5-10+ years' experience in
hands-on analysis of OMICS data (including PhD), optimally in
analysis of mass spectrometry protein quantification, other
proteomics technologies and post translational modifications. *
Experience in basic Neuroscience research and/or Neuroscience drug
discovery is a plus. * Fluency in one or more relevant programming
languages, such as R or Python. * Very good communication skills
demonstrated in inter-disciplinary teams.
