Molecular Epidemiologic ResearchPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Mar-26
The National Cancer Institute (NCI), Intramural Research Program (IRP), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting a Bioinformatician within the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG). This analyst will support a research program in molecular epidemiology of cancer and work under the direction of Dr. Maria Teresa Landi, in the Integrative Tumor Epidemiology Branch. The overall aim of the research program is to identify the determinants of cancer risk and progression, integrating genomic analyses of tumor and germline in combination with host and environmental factors. Specific areas of research include: 1) characterization of genetic and epigenetic intra-tumor heterogeneity and clonal evolution of solid tumors and their associations with exposures and clinical outcomes; 2) molecular characterization of tumors to identify exposure signatures and subtype-specific causes of cancer; 3) tumor evolution, from precursor lesions to malignant features and metastatic events; 4) genetic susceptibility of tumors in large population-based or family-based studies.
The successful candidate will conduct epidemiological studies including molecular and genomic data and work with bioinformaticians and statisticians to develop novel study design and analytical approaches. Many studies will involve collaborations with researchers in international centers and consortia, with opportunities for a lead role in publications.Qualifications:
Ph.D. in molecular epidemiology, cancer genomics and genetics, or related fields. Methodological and analytical skills and excellent written and oral (English) communication are required. Prior postdoctoral training experience in epidemiological studies including somatic genomics analyses with a history of publications that reflect superb writing skills is highly desirable. Job also requires organizational ability, attention to detail, initiative, flexibility and an aptitude for multi-tasking, interpersonal relationships and teamwork. US citizenship is not a requirement.
