Computational genomics postdoctoral positions at Weill Cornell in NYC November 25, 2012

Filed under: cancer,Cornell,Deep Sequencing,Jobs,sequencing — oelemento @ 2:10 am

Several computational genomics postdoctoral positions are open in our lab to work on a range of exciting cancer systems biology projects.

Potential projects include analyses of tumor evolution and drug resistance, role of lncRNAs in cancer, single cell genomics, personalized and precision cancer medicine, data visualization, regulatory network reconstruction and many more.

Our lab routinely deals with ultra-large datasets (that we generate ourselves or through collaborations), therefore previous experience with Big Data projects is an absolute requirement.

The ideal candidates would have:

– a recent PhD with at least one first-author publication.

– strong knowledge of C/C++ and/or Java programming, with knowledge of a scripting language, e.g. Perl or Python

– excellent knowledge of statistics and experience using R

– desire to work on important biomedical problems

Experience in analysis of deep sequencing data would be a plus.  Experience and knowledge in cancer biology would also be a plus.

Candidates with both experimental and computational expertise are encouraged to apply, as our lab has both dry and wet components.

We are looking for independent, driven and ambitious scientists with strong communication skills.

Duration is 2 years, potentially renewable.

We are looking to fill these positions as soon as possible. A starting date in December 2012 or early in 2013 would be ideal.

Our lab’s website is at http://physiology.med.cornell.edu/faculty/elemento/lab/

Please contact Olivier by email at ole2001@med.cornell.edu with a short description of your background and interests; please include a full CV and phone number of 2-3 references.
