Postdoctoral Research Fellow/Bioinformatician in Pediatric Neurooncology

The postdoctoral researcher will work on a project characterizing the molecular landscape of pediatric gliomas and will be involved in other projects in the lab. He/she will analyze large-scale genomic and transcriptomic datasets to identify driver events, especially oncofusions and integrate clinical data to characterize clinically relevant subgroups. The candidate will join a multidisciplinary team with senior scientists, M.D.s, Ph.D.s and Master students, with direct mentoring by Dr. Ana Guerreiro Stücklin in collaboration with Dr. Florence Cavalli (Institute Curie, Paris, Computational Biology and Integrative Genomics of Cancers Group)

Responsibilities:

  • analyze large-scale genomic and transcriptomic datasets to identify driver events, especially oncofusions
  • characterize the molecular landscape of pediatric gliomas and integrate clinical data to characterize clinically relevant subgroups
  • support other projects in the group (e.g. RNA Seq data analysis of in vivo experiments)
  • direct mentoring by Dr. Ana Guerreiro Stücklin (University Children’s Hospital Zurich, Translational Brain Tumor Research Group) in collaboration with Dr. Florence Cavalli (Institute Curie, Paris, Computational Biology and Integrative Genomics of Cancers Group)

Qualifications:

  • PhD in bioinformatics, statistics or computer science with knowledge and interest in cancer research
  • Experience working in a Unix environment
  • Experience in statistical analysis using R
  • Experience working with cell biologists/multidisciplinary teams is an asset
  • Understanding of cancer cell biology is an asset as well as experience of collaboration with biologists for solving concrete biological problems
  • How to Apply
