    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Scholar in Translational Bioinformatics and Computational Biology for Precision Cancer Medicine @ Stanford University -- Stanford, CA (US)
    Submitted by Ruijiang Li; posted on Thursday, March 19, 2020

    BACKGROUND

    We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University School of Medicine. The major focus of the lab is to develop imaging biomarkers and molecular diagnostics for early cancer detection, prognostication, and prediction of therapy response. Our work has been published in JAMA Oncology, Annals of Oncology, Annals of Surgery, JCI Insight, Clinical Cancer Research, Radiology, etc. Through close collaboration with clinicians at Stanford and beyond, we have access to high-quality, well-annotated clinical specimens to support our biomarker research. The lab is generously funded by 3 active NIH R01 grants. Please visit med.stanford.edu/lilab.

    REQUIREMENTS

    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 the integration of high-throughput molecular data in large patient populations and application of statistical and machine learning methods to develop diagnostic, prognostic, and/or predictive biomarkers for precision oncology. The ideal candidates will have strong analytic and computational skills, as well as prior research experience in cancer genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, or multi-omic data integration. Basic knowledge in molecular biology or tumor immunology is helpful.

    LOCALE

    Stanford, CA, USA

    ABOUT US

    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 Clinical/Basic Science Research Award and Basic/Translational Science Award. ASTRO is the world's largest professional society for radiation oncologists. One of my postdocs Jia Wu 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. He will soon join MD Anderson Cancer Center as a tenure-track assistant professor.

    Stanford University is located at the heart of Silicon Valley, epicenter of the technology revolution in biomedicine. This is an excellent opportunity not only for those motivated to pursue an academic career, but also for those interested in entrepreneurship with the goal of commercialization and translation of new technology into clinical practice.

    HOW TO APPLY

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