Postdoctoral Fellow – Integrative Mathematical Oncology
Applications are sought for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work under the supervision of Dr. Alexander R. A. Anderson on an exciting inter-disciplinary research project concerning lung cancer immune response and evolutionary therapy. We seek a talented individual with a PhD and background in applied mathematics, physics or a computational discipline to work in the unique research environment of the Integrated Mathematical Oncology (IMO) Department. IMO integrates mathematicians, computer scientists, and physicists together with imaging specialists as well as clinical and experimental oncologists to develop novel approaches for the treatment and understanding of cancer.
• The successful fellow will have the opportunity to directly interact with the greater CSBC community, since this project is part of the NCI Cancer Systems Biology Consortium (CSBC).
• Other advisors for this project are Dr. Bob Gatenby (Chair of Radiology) and Dr. Scott Antonia (Chair of Immunology); therefore, opportunity to work closely with experimentalists and clinicians.
The Ideal Candidate:
• experience in modelling biological systems, with a preference for those with knowledge of cancer.
• demonstrated creativity, high motivation, good communication skills and importantly, experience in developing/ writing publications in quality peer reviewed scientific journals.
• They should possess the ability to work independently and within the research group.
• Preference will be given to candidates with the ability to program (C/C++/Java/Matlab), visualise and analyse numerical/experimental data.
• Communicate clearly and openly, present research results on local and national platforms
• Perform independent research
• Meet with team leader and members frequently
• Build relationships across research disciplines to promote a collaborative research environment
Credentials and Qualifications:
• MD or PhD in applied mathematics, physics, or a computational discipline.
The IMO is housed within the H. Lee Moffitt Comprehensive Cancer Center which is a modern facility on the University of South Florida Campus that conducts research on various aspects of Cancer Biology with emphasis on translational research. Research environment includes state of the art modern core facilities and access to experimental and clinical data.
