Dr. Stan Pounds, a Member (Professor) in the St. Jude Department of Biostatistics, seeks a postdoc to pioneer the development and application of innovative data analysis methods in statistical cancer genomics and pharmacogenomics. In close collaboration with Drs. Charles Mullighan (St. Jude Pathology Department) and Jatinder Lamba (University of Florida College of Pharmacy), the successful applicant will develop and apply innovative statistical methods that integrate multiple forms of omic data (genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic) with multiple clinical outcomes (initial response, relapse-free survival, overall survival) to make fundamental biological discoveries that accelerate our progress towards curing childhood leukemias.
A Ph.D. in statistics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, or a closely related field is required. Knowledge of cancer biology and/or high-performance computing is a plus.
