Computational and Data Sciences: Functional Genomics of Liver Cancer
Functional Genomics of Liver Cancer
A staff scientist or postdoctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis of National Cancer Institute to study genetics and genomics related to human liver cancer. Representative areas of research of the host laboratory include defining early onset of liver cancer (Liu et al, Cell 182, 317-28, 2020), investigating tumor heterogeneity and molecular subtypes of liver cancer (Candia et al, Nat Commun 11: 4383, 2020; Ma et al, Cancer Cell 36: 418-30, 2019; ; Chaisaingmongkol et al, Cancer Cell 32: 57-70, 2017; Ji et al, N Engl J Med 361: 1437-47, 2009; Yamashita et al, Gastroenterology 136: 1012-24, 2009; Budhu et al, Cancer Cell 10: 99-111, 2006), and determining cancer drivers (Dang et al, Cancer Cell 32: 101-14, 2017; Ye et al, Cancer Cell 30: 444-48, 2016; Budhu et al, Gastroenterology 144: 1066-75, 2013; Ye et al, Nat Med 9: 416-23, 2003).
Highly motivated individuals who have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree, preferably in computer science, computational biology, bioinformatics, are encouraged to apply. Experience in cancer biology is an additional asset. Qualified candidates should also have strong communication skills, and a strong record of scientific achievement through peer-reviewed publications. Stipends are commensurate with education and experience.
Interested individuals should send a 1-2 page statement of research interests, career goals, a current CV and contact information for three references to:
