Do you enjoy working with computational scientists, biologists and clinicians in a dynamic, interdisciplinary and collaborative environment? Our lab (http://www.tsirigos.com/) at the NYU School of Medicine is seeking highly motivated, enthusiastic and creative individuals to investigate the role of genetics, epigenetics and chromatin organization in cancer and/or apply machine learning to develop novel cancer diagnostics. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on various types of large genomics and/or imaging datasets and will interact closely with our experimental collaborators and clinicians. The successful candidate will also interact with a vibrant group of bioinformaticians in the Applied Bioinformatics Laboratories (http://nyulmc.org/abl). ABL provides computational support and expertise to promote innovative cutting-edge research conducted by principal investigators at the NYU Langone Medical Center. This is a great opportunity to quickly acquire new skills, develop and publish new tools and methods, analyze challenging datasets and be a co-author in multiple studies.
