Postdoctoral Position Available in Computational Oncology

Two NIH-funded postdoctoral positions in Computational Oncology are available in the laboratory of Dr. Osmanbeyoglu at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center and Department of Biomedical Informatics. Projects are in the areas of cancer genomics, epigenetics of drug response, and immunotherapy and are executed through multi-disciplinary collaborations. We have a particular interest in developing statistical methods for single cell multi-omics integration.

The Osmanbeyoglu Lab is seeking competitive candidates who have recently completed (or are close to completing) a Ph.D. in an applied quantitative discipline, such as computational biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics or computer science with a strong interest in either basic or translational cancer research. A strong computational background is needed and experience in machine learning is desired, as is previous experience with functional analysis of omics data. Opportunities for wet lab biologists interested in data science are also available. We work closely with basic and clinical science collaborators, both at University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and other top tier institutions. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.

If interested in, please send an email to Dr. Osmanbeyoglu (osmanbeyogluhu@pitt.edu) including your CV (with references) and a brief Research Statement with your background and interests. Please put the word “POSTDOC-APPLICATION-2019” in the subject line.

The University of Pittsburgh is ranked as #5 in NIH funding, and Pittsburgh has been consistently voted as one of the top livable cities in the US. The University of Pittsburgh is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer.  EEO/AA/M/F/Vets/Disabled
