Default Postdoc in bioinformatics and genomics at UMN

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate specializing in Bioinformatics to join the Computational Cancer Genomics lab of Dr. Rendong Yang. The goal of this position will be to lead multiple research projects, develop novel computational algorithm(s), perform data analysis, collaborate with biologists and physicians, and present/publish the results in scientific conferences/journals. The main focus is to explore the functional consequences of somatic alterations in cancer patients, to identify driver alterations, and to understand the genetic mechanisms of cancer progression and drug resistance by integrating multi-dimensional data from large-scale cancer studies such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA).
