Internal Number: 2021-54994
We are seeking postdoctoral fellows to jointhe Reznik Laboratory for Computational Cancer Metabolismat Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.Our research group investigates basic and translational problems at the interface of cancer genomics, tumor metabolism, and mitochondrial genetics using multimodal datasets.
The chosen candidate will lead newand highly collaborativeprojects applying bulk and single cell sequencing technologies to understand the functional and therapeutic significanceof somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations in cancer biology.Theywill join a diverse group of quantitative geneticists,genomicists, and machine learners embedded in the Computational Oncology Service, a new initiative dedicated to translational, data-driven cancer science and tightly integrated with the work of MSKs clinicians.
Competitive candidates should must have
PhDin a computational or quantitative discipline including but not limited to computational biology, bioengineer,computer science,physics,orbioinformatics.
Aresearchbackground in cancergenomics is preferred but not necessary.
As one of the world's premier cancer centers, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The close collaboration between our physicians and scientists is one of our unique strengths, enabling us to provide patients with the best care available today as we work to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control, and ultimately cure cancer in the future. Our education programs train future physicians and scientists, and the knowledge and experience they gain at Memorial Sloan-Kettering has an impact on cancer treatment and the biomedical research agenda around the world.
