A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Michigan Center for Translational Pathology (MCTP) at the University of Michigan for candidates with a Ph.D. in computational biology and/or bioinformatics. At MCTP, we are committed to the discovery of the genetic factors involved in the development of a wide variety of diseases, including prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, and skin cancer, among others. We actively pursue advances in the early detection and treatment of various types of cancer and other diseases, with the eventual goal of creating new targeted therapies.

This position will be centered on analyzing and interpreting advanced data analyses to interdisciplinary research and clinical research projects, including: carrying out statistical and bioinformatics analyses, implementing algorithms for genomic analyses, developing computational workflows, and building visualization tools. As part of a dynamic team, the position will develop and apply advanced computational techniques to learn about the underlying biology and to guide experimental work.

The successful candidate should be comfortable analyzing large data sets (demonstrated experience in the analysis of real-world datasets required), be able to have experience in software development, and possess strong interpersonal and communication skills. The ideal candidate will use their computational skills, biological knowledge, understanding of statistics, and creativity to help us understand complex genomic data sets. Proficiency in utilizing and integrating data from an array of public resources such as ENCODE, TCGA or COSMIC and ability to synthesize and present conclusions from complex analyses in a clear and visually compelling way will be paramount for this role.
