PostDoctoral Fellow, Leshchiner Lab, Computational Biology and Biomedicine Tracking Code2871Job Description
The Leshchiner Lab in the Section of Computational Biomedicine, Boston University School of Medicine, is seeking exceptional candidates for postdoctoral fellowships focused on computational and statistical genomics, cancer computational biology, cancer resistance and immunotherapy.
The Leshchiner Lab develops computational approaches to use genomic data to understand or better treat human diseases, with a strong focus on cancer. Our research lies at the intersection of computer science, statistical genetics, and computational biology, and it includes the development of fundamental statistical methods and computational algorithms, computational modeling, large-scale data analysis, single-cell multiomics and spatial imaging approaches. We play leadership roles in several high-profile national and international consortia.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about learning and developing cutting-edge techniques in the field of “big data” genomic science and be motivated to publish research that significantly impacts current understanding of cancer.
The lab will provide resources and unparalleled opportunity for a motivated postdoc to scientifically grow and achieve high impact science, all within the community of the broader Boston metropolitan area. Remote working options could be considered.
