The individual hired for the available position will become a key member in our group, who will work on the computational biology aspects of melanoma progression, specifically acral and mucosal melanoma. This individual will be responsible for processing and analyzing whole genome, exome and RNA sequencing data, from our own analyses and existent datasets and assist post-doctoral fellows and graduate students in the lab in other aspects of their work. The candidate must have a master’s degree (or equivalent degree) or five to ten years of experience in the relevant specialization. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in cancer genetics, computational biology and comparative analysis of high complexity sequencing data. Candidates must meet the qualifications at the time of appointment. Candidate’s CV must state qualifications (or if pending) upon submission. There is opportunity to eventually drive/direct an independent research project upon demonstration of meeting other requirements of the position.
