    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Scholar Position in Translational Bioinformatics for Precision Cancer Medicine @ Stanford University -- Stanford, CA (US)
    Submitted by Ruijiang Li; posted on Monday, April 29, 2019


    We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University School of Medicine. The major focus of the NIH-funded lab is to develop, validate, and clinically translate diagnostic, prognostic, predictive biomarkers for precision cancer medicine. We employ several approaches: (1) analyze high-throughput genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic data, and (2) develop novel statistical and machine learning methods. Through close collaboration with clinicians at Stanford and beyond, we have access to unique, high-quality, well annotated clinical specimens to support our biomarker research. We are generously funded by 3 active NIH R01 grants. Our work has been published in top clinical journals such as JAMA Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research, Radiology, etc. Please visit


    Candidates from a diverse background are encouraged to apply. The applicant may hold a PhD either in physical sciences or engineering with a strong motivation to solve biomedical problems, or in biomedical sciences with a strong interest to apply computational approaches. The project involves discovery and development of novel DNA methylation-based biomarkers for cancer detection and prognostication. The ideal candidates will have strong analytic and programming skills, and prior research experience in epigenomics-based cancer biomarkers. Experience in cancer genomics or transcriptomics is also relevant.


    Stanford, CA, USA


    I am dedicated to cultivating and mentoring the next generation scientists in biomedical research. Postdocs and students in the lab have gone on to establish their own independent labs in academia or secure jobs in healthcare or technology industry. Major awards to my postdoc trainees include ASTRO Resident Clinical/Basic Science Research Award, ASTRO Basic/Translational Science Award. ASTRO is the world's largest professional society for radiation oncologists. One of my trainees recently received the prestigious NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award from the NCI, which provides $1,000,000 over 5 years to establish an independent research program with a tenure-track faculty position in the US.


    Interested applicants should send a research statement, CV, and names of three references to:
