A postdoctoral training opportunity is immediately available in the Varadan Laboratory for Cancer Systems Biology at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center (www.varadanlab.org). If you are captivated by algorithmic approaches to convert terabytes of molecular data into critical biological insights, or are intrigued by integrative models of cancer biology, we are interested in you! Join our team to build upon our recent work including immune signatures predictive of therapy response (Clinical Cancer Research, 2016), large-scale integrative analysis of multi-omics tumor profiles (NPG Oncogene, in press) and multiple translational studies (PNAS, 2015; Cancer Research, 2016).
This postdoctoral opportunity is specifically focused on the integrative analysis of large-scale tumor RNA/DNA sequencing datasets spanning thousands of cancer samples with the goal to identify signatures and mechanisms underlying response targeted and immune checkpoint therapies. You will also be responsible for statistical analysis of molecular profiling data derived from innovative clinical trial datasets and will be involved in writing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals, preparing for oral presentations at various meetings, and providing assistance with writing grant proposals.
You will be an integral member of a unique collaborative effort involving translational groups in academia and industry, and will interact closely with a multi-investigator team involving clinicians and basic scientists in oncology and immunology. In addition, you will be able to work closely with a highly collaborative team of translational scientists within Case Western Reserve University’s Gastrointestinal Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) and Barrett’s esophagus Translational Research Network (BETRNet) programs, and will be an integral member of the Cancer Genetics program at the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.
