The NCATS Informatics group seeks a self-motivated, collaborative research scientist to join its programs, studying therapeutic translation on a system-wide level as a scientific and operational problem. The candidate will develop research and methods in the areas of target prioritization, therapeutic drug discovery, knowledge representation, recommendation algorithms, network modeling and inference, and the quantitative analysis of the bottlenecks in translation. The Center convenes expert teams from diverse scientific disciplines — including, among others, therapeutic discovery preclinical development, toxicology, biomarkers and clinical application — to reduce, remove or bypass significant bottlenecks across the entire continuum of translation and to train the future translational science workforce. The candidate is expected to assess the current research program and take on projects related to the Center’s mission and provide guidance > where required to the other members of the program.
