Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Epidemiology (BBE) at Fred Hutch is seeking an experienced Data Scientist to work on multiple projects investigating the immunological correlates of vaccine protection for novel tuberculosis, HIV and COVID-19 vaccine candidates. The immune response to a vaccine can be variable across individuals, particularly for new vaccines that are in active development. Understanding the factors that impact vaccine response and identifying the features of the immune response that confer protection can provide critical feedback for vaccine refinement. As part of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network supported by the NIH Division of AIDS and the Global Health Vaccine Accelerator Program, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation we are leading major computational efforts to integrate immunological datasets generated from human vaccine trials. Analysis datasets include those generated by multicolor flow cytometry, transcriptomics/RNAseq, T cell receptor repertoire sequencing, single-cell/CITE-seq, microbiome 16S and metagenomic sequencing, and multiplexed systems serology, among others. With this data we have the potential to understand the immunological mechanisms of vaccines and to accelerate efforts to improve their efficacy and get them to the clinic.

Responsibilities

The Data Scientist works closely with the PI, a computational biologist and biostatistician, and a growing team, to develop data pipelines, plan and conduct analyses, design and implement data visualizations, and help prepare figures for funding proposals and publication.
