Cancer treatment response
Summary

Rare individuals with aggressive cancers will have long-term lasting response to therapy even when most do not. We are trying to understand why. DBMI Professor and Chair Isaac Kohane seeks a postdoctoral fellow to lead the genomic analyses of these individuals (including somatic and germline genome). In the course of the analyses you will work with a small team, including scientists in the pharmaceutical industry, that will help integrate other analyses of these individuals.

Requirements
  • Experience with NGS bioinformatics analyses
  • Experience with R or Python scripting
