We're seeking a talented, ambitious individual to lead a small team of cancer analysts here at the McDonnell Genome Institute. The job entails analyzing and interpreting genomic data from a variety of cancer genomics projects, both here at WUSTL and with collaborators from around the world.
Some of our ongoing projects include:
- The genomics of immunotherapy, including several ongoing cancer vaccine trials
- Tracking cancer evolution through a variety of therapeutic regimens in both solid and liquid tumors
- Exploration of multi-dimensional genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic data sets
- Clinical "N-of-1" cases, where your interpretations may help inform clinical care
There are ample opportunities to publish high-impact science, both as a first author and as part of larger consortia. (see my google scholar profile for a taste of what we've been up to over the past few years, including publishing in NEJM, Cell, Nature, JAMA, etc)
You'll also be helping to build new tools and shape our next-generation cancer-analysis pipelines, in collaboration with other cancer groups here at WUSTL and a talented team of full-time developers.
It's a fantastic, highly collegial and collaborative environment, and we have more amazing datasets than we have time to analyze, which is where you come in!
This position is a stable, well-funded non-tenure track faculty position, so if you're the type who likes actually doing science and enjoys mentoring, but hates being buried in paperwork and begging for money, this might be a good position for you.
