We believe that this is a great role for someone who has the right background to be apart of our dynamic team and who wants to apply their skills to support our mission here.
The Center for Molecular Oncology at MSKCC is searching for extraordinary computational data scientists with an interest in developing and applying bioinformatic/quantitative methods to problems in translational cancer biology.
You should have a proven background in both bioinformatics and cancer biology to lead and assist in the development of a state-of-the-art genomics analysis platform. You will interact with investigators with expertise in computational biology, translational therapeutics, and molecular pathology among others.
The focus of this research work is the integrative analysis of high throughput genomic data, and work with computational and laboratory-based investigators. The goal is to identify the mutational programs and pathways implicated in disease and treatment response phenotypes and to identify novel therapeutic targets. Projects focus on population-scale clinical genomics; Immunogenomics; high-throughput characterization of cell-free DNA; intratumoral and inter-patient heterogeneity; integration of somatic and germline genomics; machine-learning and data science-focused methodologies; and many others. The best suited candidate will have a focus on and dedication to translational science, be a creative thinker, extraordinary communicator, enjoy working with an interdisciplinary team, and bring intellectual and analytical rigor to their work.
