The Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas, USA is seeking a postdoctoral fellow. The individual will work on cutting edge cancer related research projects at one of the top ranked cancer hospitals in the US. The work involves computational analysis and no wet lab experience is required. The candidate must be proficient in programming and writing scientific articles. We analyze data from a multitude of genomic platforms, including sequencing, RNA, miRNA and protein expression, DNA methylation, mutations and copy number variations. The work is not limited to one cancer type, but spans multiple cancers and involves a diverse range of analyses. We were deeply involved in the prestigious NCI project The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) (2008-2018) and now, after its conclusion, we are continuing to analyze data sets from TCGA for NCI’s Center for Cancer Genomics (CCG). The position promises participation in such high profile ventures.
Candidates must be proficient in programming in languages such as R, Matlab, Perl or Java/Java Script. Basic biology and statistics background are expected, but an advanced understanding of cancer biology is not required. A PhD in any of the basic sciences will be satisfactory. We offer a highly competitive salary plus benefits.
MD Anderson Cancer Center has topped U.S. News & World Report’s "America’s Best Cancer Hospitals" ranking many times in the last several years. We offer a rich and creative environment where independent research is encouraged.
Interested candidates may send an introductory email with an attached CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
