Quantitative Scientist, Cancer Genetics

| Greater NYC Area

Flatiron Health has built a unified data set that is unparalleled in its depth and accuracy and gives our partners the capability to ask questions about data that weren't answerable until now. Our Quantitative Sciences team answers these questions.

We are looking for a Quantitative Scientist who is excited to make an immediate impact in a critical space. This position requires outstanding problem-solving, analytical and communication skills; experience with multitasking and prioritizing; and the tenacity to execute against deliverables in a timely, high-quality fashion. You will collaborate with a team of account directors, oncologists, product managers, and software engineers to help develop, commercialize, and deliver our analytics products.

Working in a rapidly expanding business, you will partner with Flatiron colleagues and clients to answer important questions in cancer research.

Responsibilities:

  • Become a subject matter expert on our clinical and genetic data and its capabilities
  • Support our clients in generating insights and evidence that link tumor genetics with longitudinal treatment and outcomes data, by providing training, developing analytic methods and carrying out custom analyses. Use robust statistical methods and compelling data visualizations to make insights accessible to a wide range of end users
  • Work with a cross-functional team to create curated datasets of linked clinical and genomic data, defining analytic requirements, ensuring data quality standards, and identifying areas for automation and process efficiencies
  • Generate ideas for analyses to shape future projects and publications, contributing to a pipeline of opportunities that will help Flatiron achieve its ambitious growth goals

Requirements:

  • You hold a Master’s degree or PhD in a quantitative discipline, such as biostatistics, epidemiology, statistical genetics, or applied statistics
  • You have at least 3-5 years of relevant work experience analyzing clinical data from patients
  • You are familiar with the fundamentals of genetics, genomics and bioinformatics and are enthusiastic to learn more
  • You are proficient in a statistical programming language (we primarily use R, but are open to people with experience in any language)
  • You are an effective communicator, both oral and written
  • You are self-motivated and flexible, thrive in highly uncertain situations, and enjoy coming up with elegant and innovative solutions to challenging problems
  • You are a “do-er”-- you know how to balance attention to detail with execution against tight timelines
  • You are passionate about our mission to improve healthcare through technology
  • You are a highly-effective collaborator and are motivated by the opportunity to work with oncologists, software engineers, product managers, and other members of the Flatiron team

Bonus Points:

  • Oncology experience
  • Experience working with longitudinal EMR data
  • You have led independent analysis of large-scale cancer datasets, including the incorporation of data from a genetic or biomarker panel

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

Abhishek

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
