We are accepting applications for multiple postdoctoral fellows in the Translational Statistical Bioinformatics Lab (https://transbioinfolab.org/ ) at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, Department of Public Health Sciences and Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center to work on cancer genomic research. The positions will be supported by NCI U24 PGDAC (Proteogenomic Data Analysis Center) for CPTAC (Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium) grant and other NCI R01 grants focusing on translational bioinformatics research for colorectal and triple-negative breast cancers. We are seeking highly motivated individuals to implement innovative computational approaches for analyzing high throughput genomic and proteogenomic data. Research directions include next generation sequencing data analysis, biomarker discovery, multi-omics data integration, cancer subtype discovery and network analysis. The candidate will have opportunity to work on multi-omics and clinical outcomes data generated by CPTAC and TCGA. Our lab has close connection with Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, which is the only NCI-designated cancer center at south Florida. Members of the lab will have opportunities to work with outstanding cancer genomic researchers on data generated from cutting-edge genomic technologies at Sylvester.
Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Statistics, Computational Biology, Genetics, Computer Science, or a related field. Experience with machine learning/statistical learning is preferred. Excellent communication skills in English (both verbal and written) is desirable. Proficiency in using R/Bioconductor and Perl/Python for genomic data analysis is required.
UHealth-University of Miami Health System, South Florida's only university-based health system, provides leading-edge patient care powered by the ground breaking research and medical education at the Miller School of Medicine. As an academic medical center, we are proud to serve South Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean. Our physicians represent more than 100 specialties and sub-specialties, and have more than one million patient encounters each year. Our tradition of excellence has earned worldwide recognition for outstanding teaching, research and patient care. We're the challenge you've been looking for.
Patient safety is a top priority. As a result, during the Influenza ("the flu") season (September through April), the University of Miami School of Medicine requires all employees who provide ongoing services to patients, work in a location (all Hospitals and clinics) where patient care is provided, or work in patient care or clinical care areas, to have an annual influenza vaccination. Failure to meet this requirement will result in rescinding or termination of employment.
