At Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK), we're not only changing the way we treat cancer, but also the way the world thinks about it. By working together and pushing forward with innovation and discovery, we're driving excellence and improving outcomes. We're treating cancer, one patient at a time. Join us and make a difference every day.
In compliance with applicable New York and New Jersey State regulatory authorities, COVID-19 vaccination (2 doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine) is mandatory for all MSK employees, contingent workers, and volunteers. Exceptions are permitted for those employees who request and receive an approved medical or fully remote exemption.
*Staff working at a MSK New Jersey location must be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, which includes having completed the primary COVID-19 vaccination series and booster once eligible as mandated by New Jersey State. All New Jersey staff not yet eligible for a booster must receive a booster within 3 weeks of becoming eligible as a condition of continued employment at MSK.
Note: Individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster five months after receiving the second dose of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two months after the J&J vaccine.
We are seeking postdoctoral fellows to join the Reznik Laboratory for Computational Cancer Metabolism at 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 new and highly collaborative projects applying bulk and single cell sequencing technologies to understand the functional and therapeutic significance of somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations in cancer biology. They will 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 MSK's clinicians.
Competitive candidates should must have
PhD in a computational or quantitative discipline including but not limited to computational biology, bioengineer, computer science, physics, or bioinformatics.
A research background in cancer genomics is preferred but not necessary.
