The people of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) are united by a singular mission: ending cancer for life. Our specialized care teams provide personalized, compassionate, expert care to patients of all ages. Informed by basic research done at our Sloan Kettering Institute, scientists across MSK collaborate to conduct innovative translational and clinical research that is driving a revolution in our understanding of cancer as a disease and improving the ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat it. MSK is dedicated to training the next generation of scientists and clinicians, who go on to pursue our mission at MSK and around the globe. One of the world's most respected comprehensive centers devoted exclusively to cancer, we have been recognized as one of the top two cancer hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report for more than 30 years.
In compliance with applicable State regulatory authorities, COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for all MSK staff. Staff are considered fully vaccinated upon completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19 (i.e., one dose of a single dose vaccine or a final dose of a multi-dose vaccine series). Exceptions from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement are permitted for those who request and receive an approved medical or fully remote exemption. Requests for medical exemption can take up to two weeks to review. Vaccination or an approved medical exemption is required to start work.
Note: Individuals are eligible to receive a COVID-19 booster two months after completion of a primary vaccination series for COVID-19. Because vaccine-induced immunity can wane over time, MSK continues to strongly urge all staff to get a COVID-19 booster as soon as they become eligible to maintain their protective immunity for a longer period.
The newly formed Soldatov lab is seeking to recruit Postdoctoral Fellows to join us at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York. The lab is part of a dynamic and highly collaborative Computational Oncology Program, a significant new initiative in the field of Computational Oncology. Motivated by new advances in machine learning and high-resolution sequencing and imaging technologies, the group is focused on important questions arising in understanding normal tissue function and disease dynamics of cancers. Successful candidates will drive key research questions that cross cut the themes of somatic evolution, regulation of cell fate decisions, and organization of the microenvironment. The projects will involve analysis of multi-omics, pooled perturbations and spatially-resolved datasets. The candidates will have an opportunity to focus on developing computational methods, work on ambitious collaborative projects and develop new projects.

Positions are available for candidates who have or will soon have a PhD and a demonstrated track research record in the fields of functional genomics, transcriptomics, computational biology, bioinformatics or related discipline (computer science, physics, data science, statistics). Applications will be considered on scientific merit and we seek to support gender, racial, ethnic, and other underrepresented groups in biomedical sciences, including exceptional candidates for The Henry and Alexia Fernandez Computational Oncology Fellowship. MSK provides strong support for the development of postdocs, competitive salaries and benefits.
