The Oncogenomics section of the Genetics Branch is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary translational research programmatic effort with the goal of utilizing genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, single cell technologies, CRISPR/Cas9 strategies and molecular/cell biology methods to identify targets and develop novel therapies for cancer. We work with other investigators within the intramural program as well as academic, industrial, and pharmaceutical partners to rapidly translate our findings to the clinic.

The program takes advantage of the uniqueness of the National Cancer Institute, (NCI), Center for Cancer Research (CCR) intramural program in that it spans high-risk basic discovery research in immunology, genomics and tumor biology, through preclinical translational research, to paradigm-shifting clinical trials.

The positions are available immediately.
