Post-doctoral Researcher Position in Systems Biology of Drug Resistance
University of Helsinki
The open position is in the field of systems biology and translational cancer research in projects funded by EU Horizon 2020 (HERCULES) and Academy of Finland (OVCURE). The goal of the HERCULES project is to use cutting-edge single-cell measurement technologies and computational methods to identify drug resistant cell populations and develop combinatorial treatments to effectively kill drug resistant cancer cells. The goal of the OVCURE project is to develop and apply integrative computational methods to identify predictive models for treatment efficacy by taking an advantage of multi-level big data (e.g., transcriptomics, genomics, genetics, epigenetics, and proteomics jointly with clinical and functional information). Both projects are based on prospective ovarian cancer patient clinical samples taken before and after the treatment.
We are looking for an ambitious post-doctoral researcher with strong enthusiasm towards science. A successful candidate has a strong background in applied mathematics, machine learning, multivariate statistics, computer science, programming or bioinformatics and a completed or soon to be completed PhD degree. Basic understanding of cancer biology or genetics/genomics is considered an asset and ability to work together with medically/biologically oriented researchers is required.
