Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Genomics of Cancer

The group is interested in detecting the genotypic determinants of cancer through the analysis of genes, proteins and of non-coding portions of the human genome. The main expertise of the group is in computational biology. However, we are also involved in data production using next generation sequencing technologies as well as testing our dry predictions in wet lab. A tight collaboration with the many wet labs in the campus is a major trait of the job.

The successful candidate will deal with data analysis through the development of ad-hoc computational tools. Applicants must have a PhD in bioinformatics, theoretical biology, genetics or equivalent. Computational skills (Perl, R or Matlab, C/C++) are mandatory. A background in evolutionary biology and biostatistics would be favorable.

The IFOM-IEO Campus hosts more than 400 researchers and offers an international and interactive research environment. It results from the integration of two leading Institutes in cancer research: the IFOM (FIRC Institute of Molecular Oncology) and the IEO (European Institute of Oncology). The campus offers the state-of-the-art technologies in the field of molecular and cellular biology and hosts the International PhD program of the European School of Molecular Medicine.

Applicants can send their CV, statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for 3 references directly via email to Francesca Ciccarelli (francesca[dot]ciccarelli[at]ifom-ieo-campus[dot]it)
