Science jobs from New York University Langone Medical Center:
New York University Cancer Institute
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Tomas Kirchhoff at NYU Cancer Institute in New York City. Research in the Kirchhoff lab focuses on understanding how inherited genetic variants lead to an increased susceptibility to cancer, with an ultimate goal of applying this knowledge to improved diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
We are currently seeking a talented postdoctoral candidate with a strong interest in combining the computational approaches in an effort of discovering and characterization of genetic basis of common cancer. This will incorporate the latest advances in human cancer genomics, including next-generation sequencing, to identify the causal variants for cancer susceptibility and cancer progression as well as discoveries of novel targets for improved and personalized cancer therapies.
In our team and institute we offer a highly motivated research environment with multidisciplinary training opportunities and state-of-the art genomic and molecular technologies.
The successful applicant will have a doctoral degree (PhD) and a strong research experience in either of the following fields: bioinformatics, genetic epidemiology or human genetics.
Required skills include:
in-depth knowledge of high level programming language (e.g. C, C++, Pearl or other) prior experience with the application of bioinformatics in biological models (preferably human) basic knowledge of working in Linux environment familiarity with computing clusters (parallel computing - e.g. SGE or PBS) * communication and writing skills
Non-required but helpful skills include:
some prior experience with large genomic data analysis (e.g. microarray data, next generation sequencing) some prior experience in statistical analysis * previous interactions with molecular biology investigators
The salary compensation will depend on a level of expertise and will be assigned according to NYU School of Medicine regulations.
The position is available any time after January 15th, 2014, and the applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send a CV, cover letter and contact information for 3 references addressed to Tomas.Kirchhoff@nyumc.org.
