computational models, bioinformatics, computer science
The Neuro-Oncology Branch (NOB), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking outstanding postdoctoral candidates interested in studying metabolic and cell signaling pathways in the context of brain cancers through construction of computational models amenable to formal computational analysis and simulation. The ability to closely collaborate with the modern metabolomics center developed at CCR provides a unique opportunity for a postdoctoral candidate with a strong theoretical background and interest in demonstrating the incredible potential of computational approaches to solve problems from scientific disciplines and improve lives. The candidate will be given the opportunity to both construct data-driven models, as well as biologically validate the models by demonstrating the ability to predict the effects of altering tumor metabolism in laboratory and clinical settings.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Biophysics or a related discipline and less than five (5) years of postdoctoral experience. Knowledge and experience from the areas of optimization, formal methods, and controller synthesis are highly desirable. Excellent communications skills and interest in working in an interdisciplinary environment are essential.
