I hope that this job posting does not offend anyone. My sincere apologies if it is inappropriate -- blame me, not my company.

Genentech has an opening for a fulltime position in its nonclinical biostatistics department, located in South San Francisco, CA.

The nonclinical group currently consists of seven MS and PhD level statisticians and mathematicians who work with approximately 800 scientists, engineers, and others in drug discovery, preclinical testing, process and product development, manufacturing, and quality control, among other areas - essentially everything but clinical trials. Statistical activities are commensurately diverse. Some "typical" ones are design and analysis of animal testing for drug efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and toxicity; microarray experiment design and data analysis; bioanalytical assay development; and optimization of robust antibody fermentation and purification processes.

We are seeking individuals with a broad knowledge of statistical methodology who are eager to work in an exciting collaborative environment to apply their knowledge to drug discovery and development. Because we are a science driven company on the cutting edge of technology, we also expect our members to devote effort to learning about and staying current with our science and technology so that they can better communicate and work with our scientists. Basic qualifications that we seek include:

> MS or PhD in statistics or closely related discipline

> Broad and deep understanding of statistical experimental design and
analysis techniques, particularly in the areas of linear models and regression

> Excellent problem-solving abilities

> Familiarity with statistical software packages such as SAS, R, S-Plus,
> Strong interpersonal skills
