Center for Cancer Research
To improve the lives of cancer patients by solving important, challenging and neglected problems in cancer research and patient care.
Post-doctoral Fellow - bioinformatics, data analysis
Position is with:
The Cancer Data Science Laboratory (CDSL), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, Maryland is recruiting Postdoctoral Fellows to join the Intramural Research Program’s mission of high-impact, high reward science. The CDSL (https://ccr.cancer.gov/cancer-data-science-laboratory) harnesses a broad spectrum of computational approaches (e.g., statistics, machine learning, algorithms, etc.) for analyzing and integrating cancer omics data. Candidates will develop cutting-edge computational methods to address fundamental questions concerning cancer origin, evolution, progression, and treatment. The CDSL works in a highly collaborative and integrative manner with other CCR research labs to generate testable predictions whose experimental outcomes could further feedback to the algorithm development. We collaborate with other CCR research labs to provide an analysis counterpart to their experiments and generate further testable predictions whose experimental outcomes could further feedback to the computation. We encourage outstanding scientists, who are developing and applying computational approaches for analyzing large-scale cancer data, to apply.
Qualifications and Job Details:
- Degree Required: Ph.D. or equivalent
- Location: Bethesda, Maryland
- Appointment Type: Training Position
- Work Schedule: Full-time position
- Citizenship: US Citizenship not required - (ie, permanent resident, visa)
- Stipend: Commensurate with experience
Candidates must have experience in developing and applying computational approaches for analyzing large-scale cancer data. Fellows will use a broad spectrum of computational approaches (e.g., statistics, machine learning, algorithms, etc.) for analyzing and integrating cancer omics data.
About the NCI Center for Cancer Research:
The Center for Cancer Research (CCR) is home to nearly 250 basic and clinical research groups located on two campuses just outside of Washington, D.C. CCR is part of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and makes up the largest component of the research effort at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Centrally supported by long-term funding and a culture of complete intellectual freedom, CCR scientists are able to pursue the most important and challenging problems in cancer research. We collaborate with academic and commercial partners and advocacy groups across the world in efforts to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and HIV/AIDS. The CCR research portfolio covers the full spectrum of biological and biomedical research. Our work ranges from basic to translational and clinical, and our clinical trials are conducted in the NIH Clinical Center, the world’s largest hospital dedicated to clinical research that offers a robust infrastructure to support CCR’s patients on an estimated 250 open studies. The success of CCR is grounded in an exceptionally strong discovery research program that provides the foundation for the seamless translation of insights from bench to bedside. Read more about CCR, the benefits of working at CCR and hear from our staff on their CCR experiences.
Bethesda is one of the most highly educated communities in the United States and has a nationally renowned school system. The city is a thriving suburban center close to Washington, D.C., and home to many restaurants, retailers and a flourishing arts and entertainment district.
