    Opportunity: Postdoctoral scholar @ UCSF -- San Francisco, CA (US)
    Submitted by Aaron Diaz; posted on Tuesday, June 02, 2020


    A Postdoc position is available in the Diaz lab at UCSF (, funded by grants from the NIH and private foundations. As a member of the UCSF Brain Tumor Center ( our mission is the development of therapeutics for brain cancer. Our core competencies include bioinformatics and systems biology.

    We have ongoing research efforts to study local immune-suppression in brain tumors by profiling clinical specimens using single-cell technologies. We are in the process of generating several hundred-thousand single-cell mRNA and ATAC libraries from several hundred human adult and pediatric brain tumors. Additionally, we are performing DNA sequencing, digital spatial profiling, and other emerging 'omics approaches. We are looking for both bioinformatics and wet-lab personnel. Applications from candidates with expertise in both domains are welcome.

    The duties of bioinformatics postdocs include bioinformatics analyses of single-cell and bulk 'omics data. The duties of wet-lab postdocs include cell and nuclei extraction from fresh and frozen tissues, preparation sequencing libraries, and various standard molecular assays. The minimum requirements for the position are: 1) a PhD in the biomedical sciences, bioinformatics or a related discipline; 2) for bioinformatics postdocs: experience with 'omics data analysis and strong programming skills in a relevant language (e.g. R, Python); for wet-lab postdocs: experience in standard cellular and molecular techniques; 3) multiple first-author papers in respectable journals; 4) fluency in English, and the interpersonal skills to negotiate professional interactions in a diverse environment; and 5) the willingness to work hard in the pursuit of shared goals.
