Current Positions

Computational Oncology

The Computational Biology group focuses on developing integrative probabilistic models for prediction of disease phenotypes and validating of hypotheses generated by novel methodologies. Currently opportunities include: positions in Oncology focused on conducting original research in analyzing large-scale high dimensional genomics data to develop predictive models of cancer phenotypes. Positions in collaboration with the recently merged Sage/DREAM effort, focused on designing and implementing crowd-sourced collaborative challenges around cancer phenotype prediction problems. Positions in stem cell bioinformatics with a focus on development of the data and analysis bioinformatics portal for the Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium, as well as research projects on modeling molecular mechanisms underlying stem cell differentiation.

Digital Health

Sage Bionetworks’ digital health program is designed to improve disease characterization through the use of sensor-based technologies and bi-directional feedback to improve health monitoring and provide quantitative metrics to assess disease impact on health and on quality of life. We maximize the insights gained from these efforts by providing them through Synapse, a collaborative compute platform. Our mHealth team includes expertise in software engineering (both iOS and Android), clinical study design and development, data governance and data analysis. We are actively involved in projects across a range of disease areas and within the Precision Medicine Initiative.
