The Immunology department at MD Anderson Cancer Center seeks to determine the fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms of a wide range of processes by which the body recognizes and eliminates pathogens and use these findings to unleash the patient's own immune system against previously treatment-resistant cancers. Treating the immune system rather than the cancer itself, the therapeutics developed are applicable to many cancers.

Immunology

KEY FUNCTIONS

Data Analysis
  • Develop algorithms and novel strategies to analyze and visualize large scale multi-omics data from internal and publicly available datasets to enable biomarker identification.
  • Formulate and guide feasibility analyses of new assays in conjunction with assay development.
  • Present data analyses to pharmaceutical and MD Anderson collaborators.
  • Oversee the generation of detailed and well-organized documentation of analysis and methods.
  • Compose bioinformatics analysis and methods sections for manuscripts and grant applications.
  • Manage data storage and reporting for the platform and publications as needed.
  • Explore and implement cutting-edge approaches to analysis of datasets.
  • Independently search literature to explore new fields of bioinformatics and statistics research to merge with immunology research.
  • Compose bioinformatics analysis and methods sections for manuscripts and grant applications.
  • Ensure hardware and software requirements are outlined and met for high throughput data storage, software upgrades, and analysis.
  • Provide bioinformatics consultation for clinical and biological research projects.
  • Present data analyses to pharmaceutical and MD Anderson collaborators.
  • Work closely with clinical researchers and others to provide custom solutions for sequencing, gene expression, proteomics and other data to expedite scientific projects

Collaboration/Alliance
  • Contribute to a highly collaborative work environment toward the research goals of the Immunotherapy Platform, participating in brainstorming, planning, and data sharing sessions.
  • Collaborate with peer scientists from cross-functional teams to analyze and interpret complex large datasets and communicate findings.

Management
  • Lead and mentor a team of qualified computational scientists; Provide training and education in statistical and bioinformatics analysis of multi-omics datasets (spatial transcriptomics such as CODEX, DSP, single cell sequencing including TCR/BCR sequencing, ATAC-seq, whole exome sequencing) to support target discovery, and translational research.
  • Recruit, develop and mentor junior scientists, as needed.
