Biological Data Scientist

We are currently looking to hire a Biological Data Scientist to help analyze and mine genome-wide datasets (such as single cell and bulk RNAseq data, and epigenetic data) to find insights into ovarian cell biology.

You would be working closely with a talented group of biologists on a broad range of projects. Routine work includes data set processing, pipeline development and generating accessible visualization tools for scientists with more limited computational experience. You will also be working with biologists to identify ways the computational data can be leveraged to generate new hypotheses and scientific directions that can then be tested in the lab. Your work would include many opportunities to find custom solutions to interesting biological problems.

Experience implementing workflows in a Google Cloud environment and experience with image analysis is a plus.

Our Mission

Conception is a startup with the mission of generating viable human eggs from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Successful development of our research could have many benefits, such as removing age limits on motherhood, allowing for easy screening of eggs with harmful genetic mutations, and allowing same-sex couples to reproduce. This has been done in mice, and now we are working to translate it to humans.

Our Research

To accomplish our goal, we must derive human germ cells from iPSCs (human germ cell-like cells, hPGCLCs) that resemble both the transcriptional and epigenetic profile of in vivo germ cells (PGCs) that are able to enter meiosis and develop to viable human eggs. We create ovarian organoids from primary cells and stem cell derived cells to help the eggs develop properly.
