The Meltzer Lab in the Genetics Branch of the Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute Bethesda MD is recruiting a postdoctoral fellow in Computational Oncology. The successful candidate will be joining the computational oncology group in the Meltzer lab at the Bethesda NIH Campus. We aim to better understand cellular processes leading to cancer through integrative modeling approaches. Areas of interest include the topological organization of the cellular nucleus, temporal control of DNA replication and integrative analysis of sequencing data (genome, exome, transcriptome, and methylome). Following a strong interdisciplinary approach, our goal is to interpret and model genomic data and to use these results to generate experimentally testable hypotheses.
We are looking for a talented, curious and experienced computational scientist with a strong interest in cancer genomics and mathematical oncology. The successful candidate will be involved in developing novel concepts for the analysis of highly complex data sets in order to gain insight into cancer biology. The position requires a PhD degree in a relevant field, such as physics, engineering, mathematics, biostatistics or bioinformatics. Significant experience in the computational/mathematical analysis of complex systems and/or data sets as well as programming skills (preferably C++ or R) are mandatory. Candidates should also have a genuine interest in cancer biology and good communication skills.
Employer: Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute.
Location: Bethesda MD
