Bioinformatics Postdoctoral FellowshipPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Mar-27
The National Cancer Institute (NCI), 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 position will support a research program in molecular cancer epidemiology 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 be involved in research activities and bioinformatics analyses of large genomics data, such as whole genome sequencing, whole exome sequencing, genome-wide methylation data, ultra-deep target sequencing and others. He/she will be involved in collaborative research with intramural and extramural researchers and several international consortia, with opportunities for a lead role in publications.Qualifications:
PhD in bioinformatics, cancer genomics, tumor evolution, or related fields for postdoctoral fellowship. A PhD or Master degree with several years of experience would be considered for the research analyst position. Methodological and analytical skills and excellent written and oral (English) communication are required. Prior experience in somatic genomics analyses with a history of publications that reflect superb writing skills is highly desirable. US citizenship is not a requirement.
Salary is commensurate with research experience and accomplishments. Additional information regarding the NCI/DCEG is available at the following website: www.dceg.cancer.gov.
