The University of Texas at Austin and MD Anderson Cancer Center jointly invite applications for postdoctoral fellowships in Bioinformatics and Single Cell Variomics starting Aug 1, 2018. In this big data era of precision medicine, we integrate bioinformatics, systems biology and high-throughput experimental approaches to identify genetic and epigenetic biomarkers, and synthetic lethal mechanisms underlying cancer and immunity for personalized medicine in the laboratory of Prof. Song (Stephen) Yi. The postdoctoral research will be performed in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment with world-class experts and state-of-the-art technologies, which provide ideal career development opportunities for postdocs. Prof. Yi is a tenure-track faculty member of Dell Medical School of the University of Texas at Austin and a joint faculty member at MD Anderson Cancer Center. He is also Director of Bioinformatics of the Developmental Therapeutics Lab, and affiliated faculty with Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Institute of Cellular and Molecular Biology. Recent representative publications include Cell (2015), 161: 647-60; Nature Rev Genetics (2017), 18: 395-410; Cell (2017), 168: 856-66; Cancer Cell (2018), 33: 450-462; Nature Commun (2018), 9: 1317; TIBS (2018, in press). For details, please visit: http://sites.utexas.edu/yilab/ Requirements: Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in bioinformatics, cancer biology, immunology, computational biology, molecular genetics, or relevant fields. Experience with cancer genomics, single cell sequencing, and next-generation sequencing analysis is a plus. Candidates will perform bioinformatics data analyses and functional mechanistic studies using cell lines, Patient Derived Xenograft (PDX) models and cancer patients.
Application process: Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing your past research experience, a curriculum vitae, and the contact information of three references to Dr. Song (Stephen) Yi (Stephen.firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line “Bioinformatics and Single Cell Variomics Postdoc Application”.
