Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics / Systems Medicine , Dublin, Ireland

A postdoctoral position in clinical and pre-clinical cancer research is available at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) Centre for Systems Medicine.

The research group of Prof Jochen Prehn at the RCSI Centre for Systems Medicine and the Department of Physiology and Medical Physics aims to identify novel prognostic and predictive biomarkers for the clinical management of colorectal cancer and other solid tumours. The team utilizes genomic and proteomic data sets as well as deterministic and data-driven systems modelling approaches on large clinical cohorts and pre-clinical cancer models to develop new stratification tools for genotoxic therapies and targeted therapies.

The successful candidate will perform research, data integration, data analysis and oversee the delivery of the work programme in the area of systems biology, biostatistics and bioinformatics analysis, as well as provide statistical support for a strong team of systems biologists and bioinformaticians (6 postdoctoral scientists and 1 PhD student), cancer biologists (5 postdoctoral scientists and 3 PhD students) and clinical researchers in the identification of predictive/prognostic signatures and patient stratification tools.

Application deadline: 30.11.2016
