Why Seres Therapeutics

At Seres Therapeutics, we have a singular mission to transform the lives of patients by targeting the microbiome.  We are pioneers and explorers, charting a new course.  If you have a pioneering spirit, come join us as we spark the revolution to treat disease through the microbiome.

What’s Your Mission?

You will use your training and education to develop quantitative methods, metrics, and analytical procedures for evaluating and interpreting microbiome datasets to identify disease targets and design Ecobiotic® therapeutics. You will follow these therapeutics through clinical development, driving the analysis of clinical genomic and metabolomic data to support the evaluation of drug mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

What You’ll Do

  • Leverage high throughput amplicon, metagenomics, systems biology, and comparative genomic approaches to identify the ecological and functional microbial signatures of health and disease states in infectious, inflammatory disease and immuno-oncology
  • Work closely with teams across the organization to translate critical insights in the field of the human microbiome into the discovery of therapeutic microbial compositions for the treatment of diseases and elucidation of their mechanisms of action
  • Contribute to the development of the company’s intellectual property portfolio and support regulatory filings for key infectious disease and immuno-oncology programs

What You’ll Bring

  • At least 3 years of demonstrated experience analyzing and interpreting genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic data sets from clinical studies or cohort studies, with rich experience in bioinformatics and/or statistical analysis of high-dimensional biological data sets. 
  • Proficiency in at least one analytical language (e.g. R or Matlab) and/or programing skills in one or more languages (preferred: Python, Perl, or C++)
  • a Ph.D. or Master’s degree in microbial genomics, computational biology, microbiology, or other related scientific field

You May Also Bring

  • Experience with infectious disease, inflammatory disease, and/or immuno-oncology is preferred
