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

The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) Centre for Systems Medicine is seeking for a postdoctoral fellow that will be involved in the development of novel systems-based stratification tools for the treatment of colorectal cancer.

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 utilises 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 RCSI is looking for a highly motivated individual who should be able to demonstrate the following:

  • The candidate should have a higher degree (PhD or Master) in the area of Biostatistics, Mathematics, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Software Engineering or a related field, ideally with programming experience in at least one higher programming language (C/C++, Visual Basic or MATLAB preferred).
  • They should have research experience or background knowledge in the subject areas described above, and should have demonstrated research accomplishments documented by publications and/or awards
  • They will be required to work independently and to integrate into a strongly interdisciplinary research environment.

Application deadline: 30.11.2016
