Default Postdoctoral Scholar in Cancer Genetics/Bioinformatics

A Postdoctoral Scholar position in the area of Cancer Genomics and Bioinformatics is available in the laboratory of Dr. Christopher Maher ( at The McDonnell Genome Institute at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Our lab focuses on developing computational methods for analyzing large-scale cancer genomics data collections from solid tumors to improve our understanding of non-coding RNA biology, identify novel diagnostic/prognostic biomarkers, and develop novel treatment strategies to improve patient care. The candidate will also work closely with cancer biologists to test/validate their computational analyses.

Preferred Qualifications

--Recent Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Engineering or a related field

-- Expertise in programming and statistics is required. Candidates should be comfortable working on UNIX/Linux operating system, program with Perl and/or Python, and familiar with statistical analysis packages (SAS, R, or Bioconductor).

-- Experience with bioinformatics tools and analysis of omics datasets is required. Experience with machine learning / data mining is preferred. Previous experience in cancer genomics would be an advantage but is not mandatory.

-- The successful candidate will be self-motivated, eager to acquire new knowledge and skills on a regular basis, and must demonstrate independent and critical thinking skills.

-- Must be able to analyze and interpret results, communicate results with an inter-disciplinary team, and have scientific writing experience (i.e., solid track record of scientific publications).
