Postdoc: Sander Group (Cancer Genomics)

Help discover molecular causes of cancer progression, design better therapeutic approaches and move cancer research results into the clinic.

Join Chris Sander’s group as a postdoc in the interdisciplinary Computational Biology Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City, with links to Rockefeller and Cornell Universities.

We take a systems biology and genomics approach to cancer research, including pathway analysis, with application to these particular cancers: glioblastoma, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer, sarcoma, melanoma, breast cancer.

We are actively involved in The Cancer Genome Atlas research network (TCGA), the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) and a Stand Up To Cancer team (SU2C).

Join a team of postdocs, graduate students and software engineers. Collaborate with others and lead a project. Check your predictions against data and design experiments and clinical validation. Do imaginative basic science and help bring it to translational fruition.

You have a PhD or equivalent in biology, medicine, mathematics, physics, chemistry or engineering. Send CV, bibliography, brief statement of research interests and names of 3 references to postdoc-sander[a.t], at any time. Then pack your bags and spend a few years in one of the best computational and systems biology centers this side of Uranus. Let’s expend less effort and brain power on wars and more on science.
