RiSE Roche internship for Scientific Exchange in Neuroimmunology (as soon as possible, 9 months)

 

Who we are

At Roche, we believe it's urgent to deliver medical solutions right now - even as we develop innovations for the future. We are passionate about transforming patients' lives and we are fearless in both decision and action. And we believe that good business means a better world.

That is why we come to work every single day. We commit ourselves to scientific rigour, unassailable ethics, and access to medical innovations for all. We do this today to build a better tomorrow.

The Position

The RiSE program (Roche Internships for Scientific Exchange) is a highly competitive student research program at Roche. It offers the most talented postgraduate PhD and medical degree students the opportunity to be fully integrated into our interdisciplinary and international industry R&D environment. As a RiSE student you will enhance your competencies, gain valuable work experience with us, and eventually become part of a world-wide network of RiSE Alumni.

The Neuroscience and Rare Diseases Discovery and Translational Area (NRD DTA) is developing medicines for a range of serious neurological diseases, including multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, autism, spinal muscular atrophy, and Huntington's disease.

As a RiSE student in the NRD DTA you will join the Neuroimmunology group at the Roche Innovation Center Basel, Switzerland. You will be actively working on a bioinformatics project associated with Alzheimer's Disease. You will be hosted and mentored by a Roche scientist who will guide you through your research and provide you with the needed work infrastructure and collaborative network.

During the internship your tasks will include:

  • Conducting multi-omics analysis and correlation analysis with large proteomic and RNAseq datasets
  • Identifying disease-relevant genomic/proteomic signatures and pathways
  • Generating hypotheses based on literature searches and data trends on relevance of findings
  • Confirmation of findings in disease-relevant tissue
  • Work together with other bioinformaticians
  • Preparation of data for presentations, paper writing and participation in lab meetings

Who You Are

You're someone who wants to influence your own development. You're looking for a company where you have the opportunity to pursue your interests across functions and geographies. Where a job title is not considered the final definition of who you are, but the starting point.

Moreover you are/have:

  • Enrolled in a PhD or medical degree program at a university and are looking to expand your experience with an industry internship (must still be enrolled at university for 50% of the duration of the stay at Roche)
  • Bioinformatics and analysis skills for curating large proteomic and RNAseq datasets; knowledge of Python is expected
  • Proficient in multi-omics pathway analysis
  • Basic laboratory skills (immunohistochemistry, image processing and acquisition) are a plus
  • Independent and a critical thinker
  • Neuroscience background or experience with neuroscience-related datasets a plus

Information about application documents and start date:

The internship can start between Sep 2020 and Nov 2020- please clearly indicate your preferred starting date and duration 9months of internship on your motivation letter.

Applications need to include a CV and a cover letter, as well as a letter from your academic supervisor supporting your application to the RiSE Program and reference letters from at least one other mentor! Please note that due to regulations non-EU/EFTA citizens have to provide a certificate from the university stating that an industry internship is mandatory as part of the university training.

Are you ready to apply? We want someone who thinks beyond the job offered - someone who knows that this position can be a rare springboard to many other opportunities at Roche!

What do we stand for?

Roche embraces diversity and equal opportunity in a serious way. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
