Position: Postdoc Position
Institution: University of California, San Francisco
Department: Diaz Lab
Location: San Francisco, California, United States
Duties: We have ongoing research efforts to study local immunosuppression in brain tumors by profiling clinical specimens using single-cell technologies. In the next two years, we anticipate generating several hundred-thousand single-cell mRNA libraries from several hundred human adult and pediatric brain tumors. Additionally, we are performing DNA sequencing, CyTOF profiling, and have clinical data for many of these samples. The duties of the postdoc will be to perform bioinformatics analyses of single-cell and bulk ‘omics data
Requirements: PhD in bioinformatics, computer science, biomedical science or a related discipline; experience with ‘omics data analysis and strong programming skills in a relevant language (e.g. R, Python); multiple first-author papers in respectable journals; fluency in English, and the interpersonal skills to negotiate professional interactions in a diverse environment
