Job Description

A Postdoc position is available in the Diaz laboratory, at UCSF. The goal of our lab is to identify biomarkers and targets for brain tumor propagating cells, and to understand how these cells interact with the tumor micro-environment. Our approach involves single-cell and bulk RNA/DNA sequencing, from primary and recurrent patient glioblastoma samples. Collaborating labs, and clinicians, will provide coordinated bisulfite and ChIP sequencing assays, MRI and patient metadata, which we will integrate into comprehensive models of tumor evolution and response to treatment. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience performing bioinformatics analyses using state-of-the-art software tools, and who also possess a deep knowledge of some aspect of cancer biology. The position requires a PhD in the biomedical sciences or bioinformatics, experience in cancer research and in using modern software tools to study ‘omics data.
