At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we’re not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we’re driving excellence and improving outcomes.
For the 27th year, MSK has been named a top hospital for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. We are proud to be on Becker’s Healthcare list as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2016, as well as Glassdoor’s annual Employees’ Choice Awards 2017. We’re treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
The Center for Molecular Oncology at MSKCC is searching for outstanding computational and data scientists with a strong interest in developing and applying bioinformatic/quantitative methods to problems in translational cancer biology.
The candidate should have a solid background in both bioinformatics and cancer biology to lead and assist in the development of a state-of-the-art genomics analysis platform. The candidate 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 ideal candidate will have a focus on and dedication to translational science, be an innovative thinker, exceptional communicator, enjoy working with an interdisciplinary team, and bring intellectual and analytical rigor to their work.
