Research Fellow at University of Michigan

A new postdoctoral position in computational biology is available at University of Michigan. This position is open until filled.

A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Marcin Cieslik at the University of Michigan for candidates with a Ph.D. in computational biology and/or bioinformatics or relevant experience. We are looking for a talented Fellow to work on several projects at the interface of cancer genetics, genomics, and precision oncology.

Michigan Medicine improves the health of patients, populations and communities through excellence in education, patient care, community service, research and technology development, and through leadership activities in Michigan, nationally and internationally. Our mission is guided by our Strategic Principles and has three critical components; patient care, education and research that together enhance our contribution to society.

A fitting candidate will take ownership of individual and collaborative projects, working closely with cancer biologists, clinicians, and pathologist. We are committed to providing a stimulating and nurturing environment for candidates with all career goals.

Broadly, our research aims to understand the role of inherited and acquired genetic variation in driving aggressive cancer phenotypes and enabling cancer metastasis. Therefore, ideal candidates will have experience in genomics, cancer genetics, and cancer biology. Candidates are expected to have expertise in programming and high-throughput analysis of genomic and biological data, as the position involves integration of large-scale data sets, design and implementation of data processing pipelines, and analyses of next-generation sequencing data.

Research areas of interest include but are not limited to the analysis of genomic data from cancer patients, development of novel statistical methods and algorithms for the analysis of cancer genomes and transcriptomes, development of innovative and large-scale biological databases, integration of genomics, proteomics, and functional data.

We are part of the Michigan Center for Translational Pathology, a world-leading and multi-disciplinary group committed to advancing our understanding of genetic factors involved in the development of cancer, and developing methods for early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

Michigan Medicine conducts background screening and pre-employment drug testing on job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent job offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background screenings. Background screenings are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Report Act.
