development and demonstration of proof of concept.  The
responsibilities of this position can evolve over time to include

Biostatistics, as well as a minimum of two years statistical
consulting experience in applying statistics to the understanding of
biological problems, preferably in a laboratory science environment.
Ideally, this experience would include exposure to the design and
analysis of “omics” data (e.g. gene expression, siRNA, etc.) .

Preferred candidates will have strong computational skills in R, S-plus or SAS.

statistics and a genuine interest in working to develop medicines for
