Dr. Zhaoming Wang, a joint faculty member between St. Jude Department of Epidemiology and Cancer Control and the Department of Computational Biology, is seeking highly motivated and creative candidates for a fully supported postdoctoral fellowship to conduct high impact clinical research primarily in genetic epidemiology of cancers (childhood and secondary adulthood cancer), biomarker discovery for late effects of survivors of childhood cancer, and omics-based precision preventive medicine.
You will have the opportunity to work with large scale whole-genome sequencing, whole-exome sequencing, and epigenetic profiling data for a well-established cohort of childhood cancer survivors with clinically assessed rich set of phenotypes including secondary cancers.
In this position, you will gain extensive experience and training in genetic epidemiology, as well as programming skills and analytic expertise in computational biology. You will be provided with opportunities to work within a multi-disciplinary environment and interact with leaders in the fields of pediatric cancer, genetics, epigenetics, and survivorship research.
Successful applicants will have a strong publication record, excellent communication skills, and a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in genetics, epidemiology, bioinformatics, biostatistics or a related area. To succeed in this position, you will have a strong genetics or epidemiology background, with an emphasis on quantitative and programming skills in R or Python. Applicants with experience in human genetics, cancer genomics, or cancer epidemiology, with hands on experience in next-generation sequencing or SNP array data analysis, are strongly encouraged to apply.
