    Opportunity: Postdoc @ UCSF -- San Francisco, CA (US)
    Submitted by Aaron Diaz; posted on Tuesday, April 13, 2021

    BACKGROUND

    A Postdoc position is available in the Diaz lab at UCSF (diazlab.ucsf.edu), funded by grants from the NIH and private foundations. As a member of the UCSF Brain Tumor Center (braintumorcenter.ucsf.edu) our mission is the development of therapeutics for brain cancer. Our core competencies include single-cell genomics, bioinformatics, and glioma biology.

    We have ongoing research efforts studying immune suppression in brain tumors, via profiling clinical specimens using single-cell technologies combined with standard molecular approaches. We have generated several million single-cell mRNA and ATAC libraries from hundreds of human adult and pediatric brain tumors. Additionally, we are pioneering digital spatial profiling and single-cell epigenetic assays. We are looking for both wet-lab and bioinformatics personnel and applications from candidates with expertise in both domains are also welcome.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    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 duties of bioinformatics postdocs include bioinformatics analyses of single-cell and bulk 'omics data.

    REQUIREMENTS

    The minimum requirements for the position are: 1) a PhD in the biomedical sciences or a related discipline; 2) for wet-lab postdocs: experience in standard cellular and molecular techniques; for bioinformatics postdocs: experience with 'omics data analysis and strong programming skills in a relevant language (e.g. R, Python); 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.
