Job Description

Postdoctoral associate position available for an outstanding candidate in bioinformatics/computational biology in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Krauthammer at the Yale University School of Medicine. The candidate will work with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data for uncovering cancer driver genes, by developing cutting edge analysis routines for integrating diverse Omics measurement across cancer samples. With a special focus on skin cancer, our team is working in close collaborations with molecular biologists, pharmacologists and physicians to translate bioinformatics findings into tangible benefits for patients, such as the development of diagnostic, prognostic or predicative biomarkers. This job is suited for a computationally minded person that would like to get more exposure to the medical field, and would like to make a difference by providing actionable hypotheses about the molecular processes underlying cancer.
