Job Location: 
Phoenix, AZ
Job Description: 

Brief Description
These positions entail bioinformatics analysis of cancer genome sequencing data from next generation sequencing technologies for assisting in clinical decision-making. The applicant will be involved in NGS data analysis and interpretation, and clinical genomics knowledge mining and content derivation. Both research assistant professor and post-doctoral fellowship positions are available.

Position Description and Requirement
The ideal applicant will have a keen understanding of cancer genomics and clinical research through publication(s). The ideal applicant should have a keen understanding of cancer pathways and targeted therapeutics through publication(s).
