Cancer Genomics of Lymphoproliferative or Gastrointestinal Cancers – Postdoctoral FellowshipInvestigators in the Clinical Genetics Branch are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with an interest in conducting multi-omics analyses to identify major susceptibility genes and modifier factors for lymphoproliferative and gastrointestinal cancers. The potential fellow will be analyzing high-dimensional germline genomic data (e.g., whole-exome sequencing, SNP array, RNASeq, methylation array) derived primarily from multi-generational families with lymphoproliferative or gastrointestinal diseases, such as lymphoma, leukemia, Waldenström macroglobulinemia, and esophageal, gastric, or pancreatic cancer. The candidate will have the opportunity of working closely with researchers with expertise in epidemiology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, genetics, and genomics and will have extensive career development training opportunities through the DCEG Office of Education.Qualifications: Applicants with a doctoral degree in genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics, bioinformatics, or biostatistics are preferred. Candidates with a doctoral degree in related fields with strong quantitative skills are also encouraged to apply. Experience in analyses of lymphoproliferative diseases, gastrointestinal cancer or omics data is a plus.For more information about this position, please contact Alisa Goldstein, Ph.D., or Mary L.
