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.
*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 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.
We are seeking an individual with a creative and analytical mind to join Sloan Kettering Institute's Single Cell Research Initiative (SCRI). The SCRI team accelerates biomedical discovery through the application of state-of-the-art algorithms to single-cell genomics datasets collected from patient data and from advanced mouse and organoid models of cancer. The individual will apply computational methods to cutting-edge data being generated at SCRI to explore questions of tumor heterogeneity, drug-resistance, tumor stem cells, mechanism of immunotherapy, the emergence of metastasis and the tumor-immune environment. SCRI bioinformatics is embedded in the group of Dr. Dana Pe'er, a leader in single-cell data analysis, providing guidance and a highly stimulating intellectual environment for analytical methods development.
You should have background in molecular biology with a minimum of some computer science and statistics courses or coding experience, and you should be excited to learn how to apply sophisticated algorithms to big biological data at one of the top cancer research institutes in the world. Your implementation of processing and visualization algorithms will allow data scientists, biologists and clinicians to interact with and interpret the data. A key focus is the single-cell profiling of patient samples, with the goal of improving immunotherapy and precision medicine. Join us if you are eager to learn and want to make an impact!
Implement, apply, and evaluate methods to process, normalize, organize and visualize single-cell sequencing data
Provide initial analysis and biological interpretation of data
Prepare Python notebooks for interactive engagement with the data
