We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to join our dynamic team studying urogenital diseases and cancer. Our interdisciplinary group combines experimental biology and computational analyses to advance precision medicine. We attack important and challenging problems by integrating data from human specimens, cell lines, organoids, patient-derived xenograft models, and murine genetic models into a comprehensive experimental and analytical framework. Our lab collaborates extensively with other basic/translational scientists and computational biologists locally, nationally, and internationally.
We are also heavily involved in multiple large-scale NIH consortia, including GUDMAP, SenNet, HTAN, PDXNet, and CPTAC, where we use multi-omics (including single cell and spatial omics) and advanced imaging technologies (including CODEX and 3D imaging) to study disease pathogenesis and treatment, as well as building reference databases and atlases for the research community. The research environment is highly collaborative, intellectually stimulating, enjoyable, and a great place for career advancement.
Ph.D., M.D. or an equivalent terminal or doctoral degree.
Recent doctoral degree in computational biology, computer science, biology, or other biomedical fields.
Experience in computer programing, omics data analyses (especially, bulk and single cell RNA-Seq, ATAC-Seq, Spatial transcriptomics), and data submission.
Knowledge and experience in urogenital development and cancer, omics, imaging, and murine models preferred but not required.
Demonstrated ability to work independently to generate, analyze, and present research results.
Ability to prepare manuscripts and to assist with grant applications.Â
